"Sis's Chocolate Cupcakes"

Eh, not my favorite pic, but the recipe is gooood!!

A Pinterest find, we made these one day when my 3 yr old wanted to make chocolate cupcakes to surprise Daddy (sounds vaguely familiar to how we found this recipe: "Best Ever Chocolate Cake"). They turned out so well, we didn't even frost them!

1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup buttermilk (or 1/4 cup milk and 1/4 Tbsp lemon juice or vinegar)
3 heaping Tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup water
1 cup sugar
1 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla

In a small bowl, dissolve baking soda in room-temperature buttermilk. In a saucepan, melt butter and cocoa together at a low temperature. When smooth, add water. In a separate bowl, sift together sugar, flour, and salt. Add cocoa mixture and egg and mix at a low speed. Add buttermilk mixture and vanilla and beat until smooth. Divide batter evenly into 12 cupcake papers. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until inserted toothpick comes out clean.
