Chocolate & Peppermint Cupcakes – so good do not need frosting!

Updated: Feb 28, 2020

Between work, study and all the animals it has been hard to find time to make something, just because!  Today I had promised the kids we would head to the Lake so while they were at Nanna’s house I whipped up a batch of chocolate cakes.  I thought I would try some peppermint essential oil to turn these cupcakes into something a little bit special.   Be warned, this is the easiest chocolate cake recipe in the world!

Chocolate & Peppermint Cupcakes

420-gram plain flour (all-purpose flour)

400-gram caster sugar

75-gram Cacao powder

2 teaspoon Bicarb of Soda

500 ml water

190 ml Olive oil

2 Tablespoon Balsamic Vinegar

6 drops peppermint essential oil

Preheat oven to 180 degrees fan forced oven

Put cupcake wrappers in cupcake tin

Mix dry ingredients together and sift

Mix wet ingredients together

Combine dry and wet ingredients and mix thoroughly for two minutes

Be warned mixture will be very wet – easiest to have a jug to pour into cases

Bake for 10 – 15 minutes until a skewer comes out clean.
