  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 12-cup muffin tin lightly or line cups with paper liners.
  2. Stir flour, sugar, cocoa powder, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper, and salt in a large bowl. Add water, applesauce, vegetable oil, vanilla extract, and vinegar; mix until batter is smooth.
  3. Spoon batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling each 3/4 full.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until tops spring back when lightly pressed, about 25 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool, at least 15 minutes.
  5. Place chocolate and margarine in top of a double boiler over simmering water. Stir frequently, scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching, until chocolate is melted, about 5 minutes. Stir 1 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper into the frosting.
  6. Spoon frosting over the cupcakes and swirl around to cover the tops.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • I'm pretty specific about the ingredients I use, but feel free to substitute.
  • I know it sounds weird to add vinegar to cupcakes, but you won't taste it. It reacts with the baking soda to add some fluffiness.
  • You will probably have a bit of frosting left over. While it's still in the double boiler, add some almond milk (to taste) and mix with a milk frother to make seriously awesome hot chocolate!
