Chocolate Fudge Cake

by Sandy

My sister has been making this chocolate fudge cake for years but with small children I think it is easier to make it into cupcakes. No arguing amongst the kids as to who gets the bigger slice and less mess afterwards

This is a really moist cupcake that keeps well.

My family's favorite cupcake recipe.

3-1/2oz (100g) all-purpose (plain) flour
3/4 teaspoonn bicarbonate of soda
4 tablespoons cocoa powder
4-1/2oz (130g) sugar
6fl oz (160ml) water
4 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar

Preheat the oven to 350F (180C).

Line cupcake trays with cupcake papers.

Combine oil, vinegar and water in a small bowl and stir gently. Put aside.

Sift flour, bicarbonate of soda and cocoa into a small bowl and add sugar.

Pour in the oil mixture and stir until well combined.

Pour mixture into cupcake trays.

Bake for 15 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean.

Leave in trays for 5 minutes before turning onto a wire rack to cool completely.

**Mixture is very runny but don't worry it always turns out fine.

Hi Sandy

Thanks very much for sending in your chocolate fudge cake recipe.

I love cupcakes because, like you said, there is less mess and less fights over the size of the slices. Everyone gets the same!!

This recipe is very similar to my recipe for chocolate obsession cupcakes. The trick with them is to make the mixture up the day ahead and leave in the fridge overnight. The mixture thickens and it is so much easier to spoon into cupcake trays the next day.

Thanks again for sharing.
