Wasabi Chocolate Cupcakes

I found this recipe in a book (My Sweet Vegan) my friend Aimee got for me at Christmas. The flavors are awesome chocolate on chocolate with a smack of wasabi. I recommend a few taste tests before baking, my first attempt didn't have nearly enough wasabi to satisfy the heat mongers that eat my cupcakes.

I've always like the idea of combining non-traditional flavors with staple recipes. This recipe is a good example of non-traditional meets traditional done well. I've been meaning to try adding wasabi to a soy hot chocolate or using a sweet wasabi glaze on cookies and bars. Anything I try (that's successful) will make its way here.
