does anyone have a really moist chocolate cupcake recipe that is made with oil, that they are willing to share? I have tried so many recipes and have had no luck finding a really good moist one.It seems like all the ones made with butter dont come out moist,so Im trying to look for a recipe that calls for oil,I think recipes that call for oil come out alot more moist.So please If anyone can help me out with a really good recipe I would REALLY appreciate it.


And a vanilla recipe would be great too!!! icon_smile.gif

Thanks

I use the one out of the cake Dr. with buttermilk....this is the best chocolate cake I've tasted yet. I freeze all my cakes/cupcakes this makes them very moist. If you don't have the book let me know I'll go look for it.

HTH,

There is a really nice recipe on the back of the Hershey's cocoa can that I used to make cake and cuppies, it was moist and delicious. I used a plain white buttercream icing on them and they were gone in a matter of mins.

This is my favorite recipe, it uses butter however it is still quite moist.

1/2 c butter
1 c sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 c cocoa

Mix the above and then add 1 cup of boiling water. Bake in a 8 or 9" pan for 25 to 30 minutes at 350 C. This cake is delicious! icon_lol.gif

Here's the one I always use for cupcakes...

TRIPLE CHOCOLATE CAKE

1 Devil's Food Cake mix ( not with pudding)
1- 3 oz. instant chocolate pudding mix
3 eggs
1/4 c. oil
1 1/3 c. water
1 c. mini. chocolate chips

Beat everything together for 1 minute on low and 2 minutes on medium in your mixer. Slowly add your chips and mix just until incorperated. Will make either a 9 x 13 in. cake, 8 inch round double layer, or about 24 cupcakes. Bake at 350F for about 15-20 minutes for cupcakes ( check for doneness, remember that there are chips in it , so don't confuse a melted chip for the cake tester saying it isn't done). Bake for about 30 min. for 8 in. and about 35-40 min. for 9 x 13. Hope you enjoy! icon_biggrin.gif
