Favourite Cake Friday: Birthday Cupcakes

Simple Chocolate Cupcakes

3 cups flour
2 cups granulated sugar
2 cups water
2/3 cups cocoa powder-sifted
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup coconut oil
2 tsp vanilla
3 tsp apple cider vinegar

In a large bowl sift together dry ingredients- flour,cocoa powder, baking soda- add salt and sugar and whisk together.whisk in 2 cups of water, oil and vanilla- once that has all been incorporated stir in apple cider vinegar. Divide batter amongst 24 paper lined muffin cups. Bake at 350 degrees until tooth pick comes out clean- 20-25 min. Cool and ice

Butter Frosting

1 cup softened butter
2-3 cups icing sugar
dash of vanilla
3 tbs milk

With either an electric hand mixer or stationary mixer whip butter- sift in icing sugar by the cup and mix in between- I usually use about 2.5 cups of icing sugar- add vanilla and milk and whip until fluffy. Add desired colouring- Strawberry puree makes and excellent pink while blueberries are the perfect purple! Frost cupcakes- add candles and partay!

     Friends it is Friday- this week has been so busy I barely blinked and it's over- I think this weekend we will be taking it easy- hoping the sunshine makes a return- sticking close to home. Happy Friday Friends! xox
