How to make it

  • Preheat the oven to 350°.
  • Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper or foil liners.
  • In a medium saucepan, melt the butter with the vegetable oil and water over low heat.
  • In a large bowl, sift the flour with the sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.
  • Add the melted butter mixture and beat with a handheld mixer at low speed until smooth.
  • Add the egg and beat until incorporated, then add the buttermilk and vanilla and beat until smooth, scraping the bottom and side of the bowl.
  • Pour the batter into the lined muffin tins, filling them about three-fourths full.
  • Bake the cupcakes in the center of the oven for about 25 minutes, until springy and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Let the cupcakes cool slightly, then transfer them to a rack to cool completely.
  • Frost and top the cupcakes as desired.
