1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 large egg
1/2 cup unsalted butter

Coca Cola Cupcake Recipe Directions
Preheat oven to 180C.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking soda and salt. In a separate jug, mix together the egg, yogurt and vanilla.
Gently heat the butter, cocoa and Coca-Cola in a heavy saucepan until melted, then add to the bowl of dry ingredients and mix with a wooden spoon.
Add the yogurt mixture to the batter and stir well until everything is incorporated.
Portion out the batter into patty-lined muffin tins. Fill to about two-thirds to three-quarters full. The recipe should make about 12-15 standard sized cupcakes.
Bake at 180C for about 20 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.
Pipe the Coca-Cola icing onto the cooled cupcakes and decorate with cola bottles and a heavy dusting of cola sherbet.
To make the icing, beat the butter using an electric mixer until it is light and fluffy. Add the icing sugar and beat until incorporated. Add 1 tablespoon of cola and beat. Add more cola and/or icing according to texture and taste.
