  • -For the Cupcakes-
  • 1 Cup Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Hot Water
  • 6 Tbs Hot Cocoa Powder the brand I used was Equal Exchange
  • 4 Tbs butter melted (half a stick)
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 Tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 Tsp Salt
  • -For the frosting-
  • 3/4 Cup heavy whipping cream
  • 3/4 Cup confectioners sugar


  • Preheat oven to 350. Line a cupcake pan with 10 liners and set aside. In a bowl add all the ingredients for the cupcakes (for the hot water I just put a coffee mug 3/4 full of hot water in the microwave for about two minutes, then measured 1/2 cup of hot water and added it to the bowl. Mix all ingredients with a spoon until combined, then distribute among the cupcake liners and bake for 13-18 minutes (until a toothpick comes out clean). Let cool.
  • In a bowl combine the heavy whipping cream and confectioners sugar. Beat with a hand mixer or stand mixer until soft peaks form (about 5 minutes). When the cupcakes are cooled frost them with the whipped cream frosting and enjoy!
