A follower of my Casa Baluarte Filipino Recipes Facebook page were asking for moist chocolate cupcake recipe which I don't have as I am not a big fan of baking. When she mentioned it was her son's request I can't help myself but to google and found an easy to follow simple recipe. She was so excited they made it the next day.

Sabrina, the mom said it turned out pretty good and actually better than those cupcakes from a famous Filipino Bake Shop chain.

See her finished product below...

Yields: 20 cupcakes
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1⁄2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup water
  • 1⁄2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar


Mix all of the dry ingredients well with a mixer or wooden spoon first then add in all your liquid ingredients.

It should be brown and smooth, free of lumps.

Bake at 350 F for 15-17 minutes if you are baking cupcakes for a cake I'd say 17-25 minutes.

Look, her son was so excited that he helped his mom with the preparation.

This is one of Casa Baluarte Filipino Recipes success story and I am proud I helped a mom fulfill a son's request. I wish I can remember or find the name of the website where I found this recipe to give them proper credit.
