All purpose flour 3/4 cup
Coco powder 2 & 1/2 tblsp
Sugar 1/2 cup
Baking soda( bicarbonate of soda) 1/2 tsp
Salt 1/4 tsp
Oil 1/4 cup
Cold water 1/2 cup
Vanilla essence 1 tsp
Lemon juice / vinegar 1 tsp
Sieve flour, cocoa and baking soda together twice to ensure even mixing and then mix in the salt and sugar.
In another bowl, mix oil, cold water and vanilla.
Reserve the lemon juice.
Mix the dry ingredients and wet ingredients well until sugar gets dissolved.
Pre heat oven to 190o C.
Before you are just going to bake, mix in the lemon juice and stir well.
Spoon the batter to the muffin liners in the baking tray.
Fill just 3/4th.
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until tooth pick inserted comes out clean.
Better keep checking after 20 minutes to see if it is done.
Allow the muffins to cool on a wire rack, after carefully taking out from the baking tray.
Give a day for the flavours to get incorporated well, though it tastes good immediately.
So if you want to eat tomorrow, make today and keep!
Note: Use fine grain sugar as it gets dissolved easily.
