  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons espresso powder
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder

  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with paper liners.
