Chocolate Cup Cakes

Friday night, I was looking up cupcake recipes and was motivated to make some. Well, I was too distracted by the movie The Towering Inferno. So I made them yesterday. It was fun making them from scratch. I actually got the recipe off of cooks.com. No family recipe passed down, but it was a hit for the Biggs family. 

                     Instructions
                           1 1/2 cups of flour
                           1 cup of sugar
                           1 teaspoon of baking soda
                           1 teaspoon of salt
                           1/3 cup of cocoa powder
                           1/2 cup of vegetable oil
                           1 cup of water
                           1 teaspoon of vinegar 


              Mix all of the ingredients well with a mixer. It should be brown and smooth. Free of lumps.
Bake at 350°F for 25 minutes.  Cupcakes will turn out moist and delicious. 
Buttermilk or milk may be substituted for water. Melted butter may be substituted for oil.







I made mostly 'mini' cupcakes and I did make the normal sized cupcakes. 
The frosting is buttercream frosting.
