1/2 tsp sea salt

  1. preheat oven to 325 degrees. line one standard size cupcake pan with grease-proof good quality cupcake liners.
  2. in a medium bowl sift flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking powder, baking soda and sugar together.
  3. in the bowl of a stand mixer beat egg, milk, oil and vanilla for 1 minute on medium-low speed {speed #4 in a kitchenaid} until combined.
  4. in a small bowl or large measuring cup combine boiling water and coffee. add in a steady form to eggs, milk and oil mixture at slow speed until well combined, about 30 seconds.
  5. set speed to the slowest setting and add flour mixture to liquids, 1/2 cup a at time until combined. do not over mix.
  6. with a standard size ice cream scoop, divide chocolate batter evenly among the cupcakes, filling them about 3/4 full.
  7. bake for 18-20 minutes, or until the tops spring back to the touch, rotating the pans half way through baking. start checking at the 18th minute mark with a toothpick.
  8. cool cupcakes in the pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes and take out of pans. let cool completely on the cooling rack before frosting, about 30 minutes.
  9. make the frosting: add water to a large pot and set on a stove burner over medium heat. you want the water to steam not to boil.
  10. in the bowl of a stand mixer, add sugar and egg whites. place bowl on top of pot with simmering water. whisk egg whites and sugar for 3 minutes, or until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture is shiny and smooth. be careful when you touch the mixture to check if the sugar has dissolved since it’s hot.
  11. transfer bowl to stand mixer and beat with the whisk attachment for 10-12 minutes, or until glossy, fluffy and soft peaks form. while egg whites are whisking, cut butter in 1/2 tablespoon pieces.
  12. once egg whites are ready, add butter, two pieces at a time beating on medium to medium-high speed. add salt and vanilla. mix until well combined. if the frosting is runny, pop it in the freezer for 10 minutes. take out of the freezer and beat at medium high speed for about one minute or until fluffy and smooth.
  13. frost cupcakes with desired tip.
  14. store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
