Cupcakes are good.

I spent all day yesterday revamping the blog layout - so if you read this on bloglines, make sure to make a stop by and check things out!

So I've just been plodding along on the plain vanilla socks. But I do have a recipe to share with y'all.. it's a cupcake that I made last week. Now, unfortunately, they were gone before I could snap any pictures. But they were so good!

Mocha Cupcakes

1 1/2 cups unbleached all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup baking cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1/2 cup cold brewed coffee
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3 teaspoons cider vinegar
3 teaspoons vanilla extract

In a small mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda and salt. In a small bowl, whisk the eggs, coffee, oil, vinegar and vanilla. Add to dry ingredients; mix well.

Fill paper-lined muffin cups three-fourths full. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool.

And since I managed to have over 2 pounds of chocolate chips on hand, I threw some of those in, too. I skipped the icing since the chocolate chips in the cupcake gave it that extra sweetness that the icing does. This recipe is one that is definately in my "keeper" files.
