Happy Martin Luther King Jr Day! He may have had a dream about equality, but I dream about food. Because I've never had to dream about equality. Thank you to Dr. King for being an inspirational person!
And a big thanks to Brett Bara's blog for providing me with a teeny tiny cake recipe! Because sometimes you really just need 2 cupcakes. Or, in this case, 4.
I could have followed the recipe faithfully and just added white chocolate chips at the end, but where is the fun? Truthfully, this recipe tastes almost exactly like cocoa puff cereal. I like that. It's very childhood-reminiscing....
Black and White Marble Cupcakes
makes 4 cupcakes
Preheat your oven to 325 degrees.
Get out 2 large soup bowls, and a little whisk. In each bowl put:
3 tbsp flour
2 tbsp sugar
1/8 tsp baking soda
a pinch of salt
In one of the bowls:
1 1/2 tsp cocoa powder
Now whisk each bowl separately. Just get everything nicely combined.
Time for the wet ingredients. In each bowl whisk in:
2 tbsp cold water or milk (I like milk)
1 tbsp Olive Oil
(Vanilla Olive Oil for the white cake, Blood Orange Olive Oil for the cocoa cake.)
Now comes the tricky part. Spoon the batter evenly between 4 cupcake liners. One color on the bottom and another on the top. Now take a small spoon and attempt to swirl the batter. Not mix it, just give it a bit of a swirl. Top with chocolate chips if desired.
Bake for 16-18 minutes. Frost if desired once cool.
Mine did not come out all fluffy like the other bloggers, but they were perfect with a cup of hot chocolate for breakfast!
