Moist Chocolate Cupcakes- Super Easy- Budget

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by LaTigress

I actually found this recipe in a book entitled "The I Don't Know How to Cook Cookbook" and it is very tasty. The cupcakes turn out moist and delicious! They are very easy to make, and contain no eggs or milk. Pair with your favorite icing. However, Buttermilk or milk may be substituted for water and melted butter may be substituted for the oil.

These were GREAT! I listened to a previous reviewer and added an egg. I also mixed some instant coffee granules with the water. The egg made it rise beautifully. I wanted to make these for my bestfriend's birthday, and i'm sure she'll love them. These will be part of my chocolate cupcake collection. And i also forgot to add, i added about a 1 tsp vanilla.

  1. Mix all of the dry ingredients well with a mixer or wooden spoon first then add in all your liquid ingredients. It should be brown and smooth, free of lumps.
  2. Bake at 350 F for 15-17 minutes if you are baking cupcakes for a cake I'd say 17-25 minutes.
