Divvies Chocolate Cupcakes

The other night I wanted to make cupcakes but had no eggs. Luckily, I remembered this cupcake recipe from the Martha Stewart show...turned out super yummy! However, I don't know about the frosting as I tried something a little more traditional ;)


Makes 1 dozen
1 1/2 cups cake flour (not self-rising)
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups water
Divvies Vanilla Frosting

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with cupcake liners; set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, mix together oil, vinegar, vanilla, and water until well combined. Add flour mixture to the mixer and mix until smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl with a spatula as necessary. Batter should look and feel more watery than normal cake batters.
Pour batter into prepared muffin tin, filling each cup 1/2 to 3/4 full. Transfer to oven and bake, rotating pan halfway through cooking, until a cake tester inserted into the center of one of the cupcakes comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes.
Immediately remove cupcakes from muffin tin and transfer to a wire rack. Let cool completely before frosting.

Did you know that if you don't have eggs - you can sub a can of soda (any type) for all the ingredients and have the most delish - melt in your mouth cupcakes? Use a light soda for a light mix and a dark one for a dark mix. I use it all the time and we all LOVE them!! Try it out!
