Strawberry Chocolate Cupcakes

Strawberry Chocolate Cupcakes by Custom Taste
I whipped these cupcakes up as a treat for my Father's intimate wedding this past month. With strawberries being on sale almost everywhere in Austin I also decided to use them as a mid-bite surprise.  They were fluffy and super easy to make as well as can be eaten for breakfast or as a dessert. Top with Strawberry Cream Cheese Topping and you have a great guilt-free treat!

While your flag is gelling mix together the flour, baking soda, and cocoa together
Add in the milk, honey, flag and vinegar
The mix will most likely fizz a little when the baking soda and vinegar interact
Grease your muffin tins
Fill each tin 3/4 of the way full with the mixture
Once the mix is in the tins add one strawberry to the middle of each muffin

Place in the oven for the 20 minutes
When time is up, remove from oven and let cool completely before removal
To easily remove run a butter knife around the edges of the muffin and it should pop right out
Frost* (or don't) and enjoy!

-If you are planning on frosting these make sure they are completely cooled before frosting
