Super EASY Moist Chocolate Cupcakes
- 1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
- 1 1/4 cups of sugar
- 1/2 cup of cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon of baking soda
- pinch of salt
- 1/2 cup of vegetable oil
- 1 cup of water
- 1 teaspoon of vinegar
Combine all of the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
Add the liquid ingredients.
Using a wooden spoon or electric mixer, mix until smooth.
Pour into muffin tins and bake for 25 minutes.
Top with your choice of topping. I used a home made buttercream frosting...but if you would like to keep the cupcakes vegan friendly, you could just dust them with powdered sugar to make them look pretty :)
For extra flavour, I added 1 packet of powdered instant coffee (1 cup portion), or you could substitute the water in the recipe for 1 cup of strong brewed coffee. I also added 1/2 cup of chocolate chips. You really could add anything you want to this recipe such as nuts, peanut butter chips etc.
