by AND Confections


  • 2 ½ Cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 ½ Cups Granulated Sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 Teaspoon Cocoa Powder
  • 1 ½ Cups Vegetable oil
  • 1 Cup Buttermilk
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Teaspoon White Vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons Liquid Green Food Color
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Line a muffin pan with paper baking cups and set aside. Sift all of the dry ingredients into a bowl and set aside.

    Step 2

    Add all of the wet ingredients into a bowl, including the green food coloring.

    Step 3

    Yes! Add this whole bottle if food color.

    Step 4

    Blend until homogenous.

    Step 5

    Add the dry ingredients INTO the wet. Not the other way or you might end up with lumpy batter and nobody likes it when that happens. Lol

    Step 6

    Mix until all of the dry is incorporated. Fill your muffin pans 1/2 to 2/3 full.

    Step 7

    Bake for 17-20 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the pan for 10 minutes then finish cooling on a cooling rack.

    Step 8

    Frost your cupcakes with cream cheese frosting (check out my recipe in how to make it!) or vanilla buttercream. Sprinkle gold sugar on them to add a little flair and they are ready to serve. ENJOY!
