Dairy Free chocolate cupcake

There are some of the requests that I really want to answer. One of them is when some one want to bake a cake or cookie for children who allergic to dairy products.

We are not the same, there are a lot of children (and adults) who can't enjoy simple cake just because there are dairy in the ingredient list.
So this recipe is for people who want to have a delicious chocolate cupcake without fear. I use Shortening (I use non-hydrogenated shortening) instead of butter and replace milk with soy milk (you can use almond milk, and don't forget to look at the package because some brands of nut milk add dairy product too). I don't have unsweetened one on hand so I create the recipe base on the sweetened soy milk, but if you use the unsweetened one, just increase the sugar. 
After using this method for making the Pound cake I think it's easy and the result is very good, you will get smooth and lovely batter for sure ^^.
If you like you can serve this cake with buttercream (yes, it's dairy free too), it's delicious and easy to prepare. For this recipe, I really recommend to use the best cocoa powder that you can find as it's the key flavour of the cake.
