  4. In another bowl mix all wet ingredients (water, oil, vanilla extract and vinegar). Add wet mixture to flour mixture.
  5. And mix till it well blended together. Do not over mix.

  7. And bake in pre-heated oven for about 20-22 minutes or till toothpick inserted in center of cupcake will come out clean.

Make frosting

  1. Place chocolate in a heat proof bowl. Place that bowl over the pan of simmering water or use double boiler
  2. And melt the chocolate. Keep it aside and let it come to room temperature. (Melt chocolate while cupcakes are cooling) Let the melted chocolate come to room temperature before adding to frosting. If chocolate is hot then butter in icing will melt and icing will become runny
  3. Take butter in a pan and using hand mixer or stand mixer beat the butter until smooth and creamy. Then add sugar and beat until light and fluffy. Then add vanilla extract and melted chocolate. Beat till mix well.And continue to beat till frosting is smooth and shiny
  4. Once cupcakes are cooled completely, frost cupcakes with icing. You can pipe the frosting or spread with butter knife on top of cupcake
