Chocolate Cupcakes with Coconut Frosting

I was curious how the Black Bottom Cupcake recipe would work without the cream cheese filling.  (I really like these cupcakes, even though they don't have eggs or butter.)   So I used the chocolate cake part of the recipe and topped with Coconut Frosting.

The result?  Pretty delicious.  Makes 10 cupcakes.


1/4 cup cocoa powder
3/8 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups flour
1 Teaspoon vinegar
1 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon soda
1 cups cold water
1/2 teaspoon salt

Heat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Mix cocoa, flour, sugar, soda and salt in a bowl with a hand mixer. Add oil, vinegar, water and vanilla. Sir well.  Line a muffin tin, fill 3/4 full and bake for 20 minutes.  (Cupcakes should come out clean when poked with a fork.)

You know the recipe for the BBC's (at least the cake part) is an old cake recipe that my family has used for ages. It's called a 'wowie cake'. I don't know if we named it that or not, but there you have it, you too are a fan of the wowie cake: the Kinsel family go to choc cake recipe since 1984.
