Simple Chocolate Cupcakes makes 1 dozen
2 1/4 cups flour
1/4 cup cocoa
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups water
2/3 cup oil
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons vinegar (Note: this cupcake recipe is vegan friendly!)
In a bowl whisk together the dry ingredients. In another bowl mix together the wet ingredients. Combine these and stir just until no lumps are left. Pour the batter into a lined cupcake pan and bake at 350 F for 22-25 minutes.
