¾ cups of plain flour

½ cup of natural cocoa powder

1 teaspoon baking powder

½ bicarb soda

½ teaspoon salt

2 large eggs at room temperature

½ cup caster sugar

½ packed brown sugar

1/3 cup White Bravoleum premium extra virgin olive oil

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

½ cup of buttermilk (if you don’t have butter milk then you can use full cream milk)


Icing Ingredients

1 cup butter (I use salted, unsalted is fine as well)

3 cups of soft icing sugar (taste the icing after everything is well mixed to gage whether you need more)

2 tablespoons milk or thickened cream

1 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

½ cup cocoa powder




Preheat the oven to 160 degrees in a fan forced oven. Fill the cupcake tin with the cases.

Use a large bowl and sift plain flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, bicarb soda, and salt all together

Leave to one side.

Use your favorite large mixing bowl, whip your eggs, sugars, premium extra virgin olive oil and vanilla extract together until light and smooth.

Pour half the dry ingredients into wet ingredients and continue alternating until mixture is combined.

Prepare your muffin trays and cook in the oven for 15-20 mins



To Make the Icing

Cut the butter into cubes and place in your mixer and mix on medium speed.

Slowly add the icing sugar and gradually mix it until all icing sugar is combined.

When the butter and icing sugar is combined, add the milk and/or thickened cream and combine it until its smooth

Add the cocoa powder in,

Add salt. Salt so that it enhances the flavor of the cupcake when you bite into it.

And Voila! All done – Enjoy this delicious cupcake with a cup of coffee!
