It is time for a chocolate cupcake recipe!
6 tablespoons cocoa
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cups vegetable oil
1 cup cold water
Sift together the cocoa, sugar, salt, baking soda and flour. Set aside. Using a mixer, mix the eggs, vanilla, oil and cold water until creamy. Slowly add the dry ingredients until well incorporated. Scoop evenly between 24 lined muffin cups and bake at 375 degrees for about 20 minutes. Frost with your favorite frosting.
Creamy Vanilla Buttercream Frosting
500g unsalted butter, room temperature
500g confectioners sugar
pinch of salt
2 tsp vanilla extract
Cream the butter for a couple of minutes. Add confectioners sugar and salt and mix on low speed until incorporated. Mix on high speed until pale, smoot and really flyffy, about 5 minutes (scrape sides of bowl when needed). Add vanilla and mix on high for another minute.
( I added a drop of pink food colouring and chocolate shavings)
