Easy Chocolate Cupcake

Pin It Now!


I read this recipe from Kitchen Flavours and know about this Avid Baker’s Challenge (ABC). Some called this silly-easy or even emergency cupcake. The methods are very easy and no baking skills required. But it produces incredible moist and soft cupcake!!! It tastes great although without the frosting. It keeps well and still stays moist the next 2 days. I hope you can see the texture from my photos.

I strongly recommend this cupcake. Try it!

Ingredient: yield 12 cupcakes
1 cup (4 ½ ounces) all-purpose flour
1/2 cup (1 ½ ounces) unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup castor sugar (I used 150g)
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
¾ cup hot water (I used milk, simmer and off the heat once about to boil)
½ cup vegetable oil
1 ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg

Method :
1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking soda and salt until well blended.

2. Pour in the hot milk/water, oil and vanilla. Crack the egg into the bowl and whisk until blended, about 1 minute.

3. Pour evenly into the lined muffin cups. Bake in pre-heated oven at 180C for 18 minutes or until a pick inserted in the center of one of the cupcakes comes out clean.

4. Leave to cool completely before frosting.

  1. This is so tempting. Posted something like this before using Anncoo's recipe. This will surely be a hit amongst the kids!

  2. Yummmm, I made another version of easy chocolate cupcake b4 but have totally forgotten as to how I prepared them, hahaha! Like you said, it does look very moist!Best to go with a cuppa peppermint tea for me!

  3. Wow, the cupcake looks really really moist Vivian. I've bookmarked the recipes, thanks for sharing!!

  4. this look great! but what brand of cocoa powder did u use. can those from phoon huat pull it off? :p

  5. The cucakes look great. Very moist indeed. If you own Abby Dodge's book, feel free to bake with us every month.

  6. Grace,
    I'm not sure what brand of cocoa powder as I used to buy a packet (1kg) prepacked from baking supply shops. As long as you like the cocoa powder I'm sure your cupcake will turn out great!
