So the title of this post is slightly misleading. We made three cupcakes–because there are three of us–but this recipe allows you to make just one (or two, or three, or four, etc.) rather than *having* to make a full batch. Which, let’s admit it, challenges the self control just a wee bit, right?
Tonight, My Tiny Sous Chef wanted to do something special to celebrate her dad’s first day at a new job. She asked this morning if we could make him cupcakes, and after school we decided we were going to figure out how to make just what we needed. The result was fudgy, and still somehow not too sweet, single serving perfection. Here you go.
WHAT YOU NEED
Recipe makes one cupcake
* 1/8C flour
* 1 1/4T sugar
* 1/2T cocoa
* pinch of salt
* 1T milk
* 2T canola oil
* 1/8t vanilla
* homemade or store bought ftosting/decorations of your choosing
WHAT TO DO
Preheat the oven to 325F. Spray a cupcake pan with nonstick spray or line with as many cupcake liners as the number if cupcakes your making, and set aside.
Mix together the flour, sugar, cocoa, and salt in a bowl until combined.
Then add the milk, canola oil, and vanilla and whisk carefully until fully combined.
Pour the batter into the prepared cupcake tin or liner(s).
Bake at 325F for 20-24 minutes.
Allow your cupcake(s) to cool completely before frosting and decorating to your own individual delight–and enjoy! There’s always a reason to celebrate something, right?!
