  • Now mix the baking soda with the vinegar and pour this immediately into the above cake batter.
  • Fold it in quickly and scoop the batter into muffin tray lined with muffin liners. (Makes about 12 cupcakes)
  • Bake these in a preheated oven at 175ƒ for 20-23 minutes or until a tooth pick comes out clean. Take the cupcakes out of the oven and let them cool completely.
