Super Simple Chocolate Cupcakes

2014-02-23 17.52.39

I ❤ cupcakes, especially chocolate ones. They are always a hit and these are these easiest ones to make EVER! What you will need:

1 and 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour

1 and 1/2 cups unbleached flour

2 cups sugar

6 TBS cocoa

2 tsp baking soda

1 tsp sea salt

3/4 cup canola oil

2 TBS distilled white vinegar

2 tsp vanilla

1/2 tsp almond extract

2 cups water

Preheat oven to 350. Pour all the dry ingredients through a small hole strainer, to remove any clumps and add air, into a large bowl. Make a well in the center and add the wet ingredients. Stir until smooth. Scoop into cupcake holders and bake for 7 to 10 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean from the center. Makes about 3 dozen cupcakes. Let cool completely before icing. I normally wait overnight. This cake is very moist.


For the frosting:

2 cups powdered sugar, strained to remove clumps

1/2 cup margarine

1 and 1/2 tsp vanilla

2 TBS almond milk

Cream everything together with a mixer. If margarine is cold, mix that alone first and then add everything else. Can add food coloring if desired.
