Citrus Chocolate Cupcakes

“Very soft decadent, yet low-fat cupcakes. These do not contain egg and can easily be made vegan. Un-iced, they are still extremely good cake-like muffins. NOTE: these cupcakes had a VERY mild citrus flavour. I have since added orange zest to the recipe for a more prevalent citrusy flavour.”
