• 1 cup or 200 g granulated sugar

• ¼ cup or 23 g natural unsweetened cocoa powder

2. Ingredients for Frosting:

• 4 tsp butter

• 3 tsp milk

• 1 tsp vanilla extract

• ⅓ cup or 30 g natural unsweetened cocoa powder

• 1 ½ cup or 158 g powdered sugar

3. Process or Recipe:

1. Preheat oven and prep muffin tin: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F with a rack in the centre position. Set up a muffin tin with cupcake liners.

2. Mix dry ingredients: In a big container or bowl, fastly whisk together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, salt, and baking soda until there are no noticeable clumps (cocoa generally clumps up).

3. Mix wet ingredients: In a different bowl, combine the espresso with water or brewed coffee, vanilla extract, vinegar, and olive oil.

4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ones and mix just until they simply meet up. Don't overbeat! The blend should be slender and rather lumpy.

5. Pour the batter into the cupcake liners, filling them around ⅔ of the cupcake.

6. It’s time to finally bake! Place Cupcake in Microwave Oven and heat at 350 degrees F for 18 to 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean.

7. Now remove the cupcakes from the oven and let it cool in the container for around five minutes. Just let it cool for a rack after removing it from the container. Now it’s time for you to frost the delicious cupcakes.

Ingredients for Frosting

4. Frosting:

While the cupcakes are in the baking process, make the icing or frosting. Soften butter in a little container. Mix in the cocoa until smooth. Sprinkle in about ⅓ of the powdered sugar, mix, and then mix in about half of the milk. Now repeat the process with milk, sugar, or vanilla, blending after every addition, until the icing is of the consistency you need, and smooth. If it gets more liquidy, then add powdered sugar to it. And if stiffer, then add vanilla extract or milk.

To generate a great decorative pattern, scoop the icing into the side of a ziplock cooler bag. Use scissors to remove ¼ inch or so from the tip of the sides. Now just squeeze the icing on the cupcakes in any design that you like. Your cupcake is ready to eat!
