  • Wholewheat flour - 1 cup
  • Castor sugar - 1 cup
  • Cocoa powder - 4 tsp
  • Salt - a pinch
  • Baking powder - 1+1/2 tsp
  • Oil - 1/4 cup + 1 tbsp
  • Milk - 1 cup
  • Vanilla essence - 1 tsp


  • Preheat the oven at 180 degrees Celsius for 10 minutes. Line a muffin tray with cupcake liners.
  • Sieve all the dry ingredients together twice and set them aside.
  • Whisk the wet ingredients together.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and whisk well to make a smooth batter. If the batter is too dry add 1-2 tbsp milk to make it smooth and lump free.
  • Fill each cupcake liner in the prepared tin with the batter up to 2/3rd of their capacity. Pat the tray lightly on the platform to release any air bubbles.
  • Bake at 180 degrees Celsius for 20-25 mins. To check if it's cooked, insert a toothpick in the centre of a cupcake, it should come out clean or with a few moist crumbs. Adjust the timing & temperature as every oven works differently.
  • Cool thoroughly before serving. They can be stored up to 3 days in an airtight box.
