Recipe from Amanda Cupcake.
2 1/4 cups flour
1 1/2 cups extra fine baking sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup cocoa powder
3/4 cup oil
1 1/2 cups water
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 tablespoons vinegar
Preheat Oven to 325 and line cupcake tin with 18-24 cupcake papers. Set aside a medium mixing bowl to whisk dry ingredients together-Flour, Baking Soda, Salt, Cocoa Powder.
Set aside a second medium mixing bowl of your liquid ingredients-water, vanilla extract, and vinegar.
In stand mixer, cream the oil & sugar together. Gradually alternate the addition of dry & liquid ingredients to your creamed mixture and scrape down bowl in between mixing to make sure all ingredients are evenly blended.
Using an ice cream scoop, fill cupcake liners appx 3/4 full and bake for 18-22 minutes at 325 or until toothpick inserted into cupcake comes out clean.
****If you want to bake a Caramel Cadbury egg inside of the cupcake: Cut a small hole in the corner of a ziploc bag. Pipe a small amount of chocolate batter into the bottom of your cupcake liner (just enough to cover the bottom of your cupcake liner). Lay Cadbury egg on its side on top of the batter. Using a spoon or a piping bag, cover the top of the Cadbury egg with chocolate batter. Fill cupcake liner appx 3/4 full. Cadbury Egg will bake inside of cupcake!
Salted Caramel Frosting:
3/4 Cup of Softened Salted Butter (cut up into squares)
4-6 Cups of Powdered Sugar
1/2 Cup of Mrs. Richardsons Ready Made Caramel
1/2 Tablespoon of Sea Salt or Kosher Salt
2 teaspoons of pure Vanilla Extract
Cream butter in stand mixer bowl. (Use flat beater attachment to whip this frosting)
Open the jar of ready made caramel, pour into creamed butter. Whip the two ingredients together until they are creamy and light caramel brown. Whip Salt & Vanilla Extract into your mixture.
Gradually add Powdered Sugar until you reach the desired frosting texture. The more powdered sugar you add, the thicker the frosting will be. (Thick frosting is best for piping textured swirls onto cupcakes. Creamier frosting is best for frosting cakes, or for piping a smooth dreamy swirl on top of cupcakes).
Optional Tip: You can add more caramel for a stronger flavor-but you will need to add a higher amount of powdered sugar to thicken the frosting.
