Community Recipe from


  • 1 1/4 cup(s) flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon(s) baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon(s) cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) ginger ground
  • 1/2 cup(s) unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder sifted
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1/2 cup(s) sugar granulated
  • 1/3 cup(s) vegetable oil
  • 1 eggs
  • 2 teaspoon(s) root beer flavoring
  • 3/4 cup(s) plain Lifeway Kefir


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line a cupcake pan with paper liners. Mix together flour, cocoa, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger and salt in a small bowl. In a large bowl, whisk together sugar, oil, egg and root beer flavoring until smooth. Alternately whisk in flour mixture and buttermilk until smooth. Scoop batter into pan and bake 22-27 minutes until tops of cupcakes spring back when lightly touched. Cool in pans for 10 minutes, then remove and cool completely on wire rack.

  2. Top these with a sprinkle of powdered sugar for a not-so-sweet treat, or fold 1/2 tsp of root beer flavoring into whipped cream and top each cupcake with a generous spoonful of whipped cream.
