This recipe will either make 24 cupcakes or a single 8×3 round cake.
And here are the steps:
In a deep bowl, add flour, cocoa powder, sugar, oil, vanilla extract, eggs, milk, cinnamon powder, salt, baking powder, baking soda and mix everything.
Add hot water. I usually microwave it in the microwave for 2 minutes.
Mix everything until the batter is well-blended.
The batter will be very “liquidy.”
Pour this batter into a greased/floured pan (Dimensions: 8×3).
Only fill your pan halfway and use the remaining batter for some cupcakes or another mini cake if you like.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
If you are making cupcakes, pour this batter into cupcake liners and fill them three quarters of the way. You can easily get 24 cupcakes with this recipe.
Tip: Pour your batter into a pitcher and use that to pour batter into individual cupcake liners. I find this easier and not as messy as spooning individually.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 17-20 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
DO NOT bake both the trays at once. Bake one tray of cupcakes and then bake another. Whenever I bake both the trays together, the cupcakes don’t get fully baked. :S
And there you have it.
A great recipe for cakes…
Well, that’s all for today.
