How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Line 24 muffin cups with paper or foil liners.
  • In large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, cocoa, soda and salt. Add butter, oil, buttermilk, eggs and vanilla. Beat two minutes at medium speed.
  • Stir in water until blended. Batter will be thin.
  • Divide batter among muffin cups. Bake at 350°F for 30-35 min, or until toothpick inserted near center comes out clean.
  • Cool in pan 5 min. Remove to wire rack. Cool completely.
  • Frosting:
  • In large mixing bowl, beat butter and cocoa until creamy. Add sugar, 3 tablespoons milk and vanilla. Beat on low until blended. Beat on medium until light and fluffy. Add more milk if frosting is too thick. Makes enough to frost 24 cupcakes.
