Mom's Chocolate Cupcakes
I got this off the internet not too long ago. When I made cupcakes, they didn't come out of the papers too well (guess you can spray) but I double it like below and make a cake. Also good for two round cakes.
3 C. flour
2 C. sugar
2 tsp baking soda
Salt (I skip it)
2/3 C. Scharffenberger Cocoa
1 C. oil
2 C. water
2 tsp vanilla
2 Tab. vinegar
There were no mixing directions other than mix it all together which I do in order listed. Stir & blend well. Oil pan. I used 10 x 13 pan in the photo. I baked about 35 minutes at 350 degrees.
**Last year, I made this into a layered Christmas Tree cake (just use tree pans). The biggest challenge on this cake was finding the old fashioned ribbon candy here in Southern California. Many people do not even know what it is. Finally I found it made by Russell Stover at a Rite Aid in Long Beach on Spring Street. Also, Fresh & Easy was selling the German cocoa or upscale markets also sell it.
**Have fun with this. It tastes delicious. Let me know if you have questions.
Adjectives: Easy skill level, 'from scratch', great tasting, cute too
