  1. With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 180 °C (350 °F). Line 18 muffin cups with paper or silicone liners. Set aside.
  2. In a bowl, combine the sugar, flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the eggs, water, oil, vinegar, and vanilla with a whisk. Add the dry ingredients and stir until the batter is smooth.
  4. With a 45 ml (3 tablespoons) ice cream scoop, spoon the batter into the cups. Bake for about 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre of a cupcake comes out clean. Let cool on a wire rack.


  1. In a bowl, beat together all the ingredients with an electric mixer until the frosting is smooth.
  2. With a spreading knife or pastry bag fitted with a plain or fluted tip, frost the cooled cupcakes.


  1. Great recipe, if slightly sweet for my taste. I made these with black cocoa and they tasted like Oreos. Will be a great base for Oreo cupcakes, with Oreo frosting.

  2. Easy to make. My kids love them

  3. Nice moist cupcake with good chocolate flavour. Easy to make. Will definitely make again.
