I received a comment on my last post asking for my Chocolate Cupcake recipe.  I like to share and am pleased to pass this recipe on to my blog fans and followers.

Vampire Gran’s Perfect Chocolate Cake

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

.75# AP flour

.75# granulated sugar

1/2 tsp salt

3/4 Tbsp baking soda

1/2 cup cocoa powder (unsweetened)

3/4 cup vegetable oil

2 eggs

1/2 tbsp vanilla

3/4 cup buttermilk

3/4 cup HOT strong coffee

Sift over mixing bowl flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt.  Using an electric mixer, add oil and mix.  It will be a dry paste.  Stir eggs and vanilla together and add to the mixing bowl.  Mix in buttermilk.  Scrape bowl often.  Carefully and slowly, add hot coffee, a small amount at a time.  The batter will be very thin.  Be sure the bowl is well scraped and all of the solids have mixed in smoothly.

Using a 1/4 cup disher, portion out into paper lined cupcake pans.  Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 23 – 25 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean.

Makes approximately 24 medium cupcakes.

    I have a dumb question…

    Does .75# mean 3/4 of a pound?? 🙂

      Lyn, there is no such thing as a dumb question. Only dumb answers. You are correct, .75# means 3/4 of a pound. Sorry for the confusion. I’m used to writing and reading professional measurements. Tell me how the recipe turns out.
