Choco Chili Zoë Cupcakes


These cupcakes are a step up from other ordinary cupcakes; our Zoë chili oil gives an extra punch and 'out of the ordinary' flavour that will keep you coming back for more. It adds just a slight bit of heat and alot of richness. Best of all there is no butter in this recipe and yet the cake is fantastically moist.

For the cupcakes:

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup cocoa powder
  • 1½ tsp. baking powder
  • 1½ tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • ½ cup Zoë Chili Infused Extra Virgin Oil
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 cup boiling water

 

For the buttercream icing:

  • 1 cup room temperature butter
  • 6 to 8 cups confectioner's sugar
  • &#189 cup milk
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract

Prep Time: 30:00 - Cook Time: 25:00 - Total Time: 55:00
  1. Heat the oven to 350°F. Line muffin cups (2¾ inches in diameter) with paper cupcake liners.
  2. Stir together sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in large bowl. Add eggs, milk, Zoë chili oil, and vanilla; beat on medium speed of mixer 2 minutes. Stir in boiling water (batter will be thin). Fill cups ⅔ full with batter.
