Chocolate Cupcakes (4)

I found this amazing cupcake recipe and it’s been a hit ever since. The cake is extremely moist and finger licking good. It’s a very easy flop-proof recipe and you will win many hearts making and sharing these.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup cocoa

1 cup flour

1 cup sugar

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 egg

1/2 cup warm water

1/2 cup buttermilk

1/4 cup canola oil

1/2 tsp vanilla essence

Method:

Pre-heat your oven to 180 deg C and line the cupcake trays with cupcake liners. Sift the cocoa,flour, baking soda and salt into a mixing bowl. Add the egg, water, buttermilk, oil and vanilla essence and mix untill you have a smooth consistency.

Fill the cupcake liners with 1/3 cup of the mixture. I have found a piping bag works the best.

Bake for 18 to 20 minutes. Test with a toothpick to see if the mixture is baked. f it comes out clean, then your batch should be ready.

Cool for at least 30 minutes before you get creative with the icing.

Makes approx 18 cup cakes per batch.
