Servings: 24 mini cupcakes


  • 1 ½ cups all purpose flour
  • cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon dark cocoa powder
  • 1 cup sugar
  • cup vegetable oil
  • ½ teaspoon instant coffee optional
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 1 large egg room temperature
  • ¾ cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon white vinegar
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt


  • Preheat oven to 170˚C with the rack in the center of the oven. Fill the mini cupcake baking pan with liners.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together dry ingredients until smooth and free from lumps.
  • In a separate mixing bowl, mix together wet ingredients until fully incorporated.
  • Pour wet ingredients over dry ingredients and mix until ingredients are just incorporated. Please note that the batter will be slightly thin.
  • Fold in 1/2 cup chocolate chips. Fill each cupcake pan about 1/2 full of the mixture (do not overfill) and sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup chocolate chips evenly over the tops. Bake at 170°C on the center rack for about 10-12 minutes (mine was 10 minutes) or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
