- Line or grease and flour 1 12 cupcake cupcake pan.
- In a small saucepan, heat butter, coca cola and rum to boiling. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
- Mix together lime juice and milk in a small bowl* or measuring cup and set aside.
- Meanwhile, whisk together cocoa, flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
