Chocolate Cupcakes with Cooked Frosting

Frosting Adapted from Yoyomax12

Chocolate Cupcakes:
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup cold water
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon vinegar
1 teaspoon vanilla
Frosting:
1 cup milk
4 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar

1. Preheat oven to 350°F and place cupcake liners into muffin pan. In a large bowl whisk together flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
2. In another bowl mix together water, vegetable oil, and vanilla. Add to dry ingredients and stir to combine. Divide batter and fill cupcake liners two-thirds full. Bake 18-22 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
3. While cupcakes cool completely prepare the frosting. In a saucepan whisk together the milk and flour. Stirring constantly, cook over medium heat until a thick paste forms. Transfer to a clean bowl and cool.
4. Once paste has cooled completely blend in vanilla and beat for 4 minutes until smooth. Set aside. In another bowl beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy, again beating for 4 minutes.
5. Add the vanilla paste to the sugar butter mixture and beat for 3 minutes until light and fluffy. You can now frost your cooled cupcakes and decorate as desired. Serve & enjoy!

Makes 15 cupcakes. Happy New Year everyone!
