    This recipe was given to my mom by a next door neighbor many years ago. It makes a wonderful dark chocolate cupcake, or double the recipe for a sheet or layer cake. It has become a family favorite and is always requested at birthdays.

      These cupcakes were the richest, moistest (is that a word?), and the most chocolaty cupcakes I have ever made from scratch :) At first, I was a little hesitant about the "no eggs" factor, as well as using the vinegar, but they came out perfect! I added a touch more cocoa and maybe a 1/4-1/3 cup more sugar (there were no raw eggs in the recipe, so I was able to really taste the batter and adjust it to my liking)...Also, I added 1/2 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips, and boy, do they add to the moistness of the cupcakes :) Next time, I will try this as a full layer cake with a cream cheese frosting :D Thanks for posting this recipe!

      These cupcakes were great, and very simple to make! I did replace the water with milk, but only because a couple of reviewers suggested it. Usually, recipes taste better with milk instead of water, but I'm sure they would have been fine either way. Thanks for posting, I loved them!!

      A nice, spongey cupcake. I will use milk next time--and maybe chocolate chips!--for a richer cupcake. Thank you for posting.
