Chocolate cupcakes with buttercream frosting
- 180ml – Milk + 1 tsp – White vinegar, mixed together and rested for at least 5 minutes
- 4gms – Coffee powder
- 90gms – Cocoa powder
- 1 tsp – Baking powder
- 180ml – Vegetable oil
- 150gms – Sugar
- 3gms – baking soda
- 180gms – All-purpose flour
- 2 – Eggs
- 2.5ml – Vanilla extract
- 100gms – Butter
- 30gms – Cocoa powder
- 1 cup – icing sugar
*Preheat the oven at 180 celsius. Meanwhile, line your cupcake tray with cupcake liners.
*Take a glass bowl and whisk all-purpose flour along with cocoa, coffee powder, baking soda and baking powder.
*Take another bowl and beat the sugar, oil and eggs together. But remember to add one egg at a time and mix nicely until it is incorporated with other ingredients. Next, add the vanilla essence and mix nicely again.
*Mix the dry and wet ingredients together and beat until it becomes a smooth batter with no air bubbles. Pour this batter into every cupcake mould and bake until cooked well.
*Now it is time to make the frosting. For this, just beat the three ingredients (mentioned above). However, make sure to sift icing sugar and cocoa before adding.
*Beat it with a whisk until the peaks are stiff. Generously add it to the top layer of the cupcakes and enjoy!
