Easy, Never Fail, Chocolate Cupcakes.

These are the most amazingly light and moist, easy, never failed yet, chocolate cupcakes. I make them for all the children's birthdays, and they are always a big hit. Our favorite frosting/icing is a vanilla cream cheese one, so I'll share that recipe too as a bonus at the end.

Please note that this is NOT a Trim Healthy Mama recipe like most of the others on this blog. This is just a regular cake. I make a few cupcake style "muffin in a mug" cakes for me to enjoy while the rest of the family enjoys these birthday treats.

The recipe:

1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
3 heaped tablespoons cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon vanilla extract/essence
1 teaspoon vinegar
6 teaspoon oil
1 cup water

The directions:

Sift together all the dry ingredients

Mix together

Make 3 wells in the mixture

Into each well add one of the following, vanilla, vinegar & oil

Pour in the water and mix thoroughly

Bake as individual cupcakes at Gas5/350f/180c for 12-14 minutes

Cool on a wire rack

Top with frosting/icing

*Our favorite frosting is:
16oz cream cheese
8oz coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla extract/essence
a few drops of lemon oil
stevia powder to taste

whip everything together until fluffy.


These really are a simple, easy and tasty cake. Simple enough even toddlers can help make them.
