Ingredients

  • 1.25 c Flour (Plain) (156g)
  • 3/4 c Sugar (Granulated) (150g)
  • 1/2 t baking soda
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1/2 t cocoa powder
  • Wet ingredients:
  • 3/4 c vegetable oil (178mL)
  • 1/2 c buttermilk (119mL, at room temperature)
  • 1 large egg (at room temperature)
  • 1 T red food coloring
  • 1/2 t vinegar
  • 1/2 t vanilla extract

Method

Preheat oven to 350F.  Line a muffin pan with cupcake papers.

In a medium mixing bowl, sift together the dry ingredients: flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, and cocoa powder.  In a large bowl, gently beat together the oil, buttermilk, egg, food coloring, vinegar, and vanilla with a handheld mixer.  Add the sifted dry ingredients to the wet and mix until smooth and thoroughly combined.

Divide the batter evenly among the cupcake tins, about 2/3 full.  Bake 20-25 minutes, turning pan(s) once (halfway through).  Test with toothpick; cool completely before frosting.
