1cupMilk(I used Vanilla Soymilk, you can use water instead of milk)
2tbspApple cider vinegar vinegaror any other
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line cupcake pan with liners.
In a medium bowl, combine all the dry ingredients.
In another bowl, combine all the wet ingredients along with the espresso powder (if using).
Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Try not to over mix.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan about 2/3rds full.
Bake for 15-17 minutes or until a cake tester/ toothpick inserted in the center of the cupcake comes out clean, a few crumbs is fine.
Cool in the pan for 5 minutes before removing on to a wire rack to cool completely.
