DIY - Cola-cola Cupcakes

Adopted this from ParisPastry's recipe blog, here's the original recipe. http://parispastry.blogspot.com/2009/12/coca-cola-cupcakes.html, somewhat omitted the icing topping part.

I am so not used to measurement in cup. In such, I used a manual converter to convert them to either ml or gram. Here goes the converted measurement for my easy reference in future.

Ingredients for the cake:
160g all purpose flour
150g sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 large egg
120ml buttermilk (or 2 tablespoon plain yoghurt with 80ml low-fat milk, or 110ml milk with 10ml lemon juice)
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
120g unsalted butter
2 tablespoon cocoa powder
180ml Coca-cola

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking soda and salt. Beat the egg, buttermilk and vanilla in a measuring cup. In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, melt the butter, cocoa and Coca-cola, heating gently. Pour into dry ingredients, stir well with a mixer at low speed, then add liquid ingredients, beat till everything is well
  3. Pour into a 12-cup muffin pan lined with paper baking cups. And bake on the warm sheet for 20-25minutes. The top of the cupcake will be cracked. Leave to stand 15 minutes in the pan before unmolding.
Getting ready to bake.

Ta-da... ready!

Surprisingly, it tasted so well. Cola blends well with the Van Hauten cocoa powder. :)
