In a medium mixing bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, and cocoa powder.

In a large bowl gently beat together the oil, buttermilk, eggs, food coloring, vinegar, and vanilla with a handheld electric mixer.

Add the sifted dry ingredients to the wet and mix until smooth and thoroughly combined.

Divide the batter evenly among the cupcake tins about 2/3 filled.

Bake in oven for about 20 to 22 minutes, turning the pans once, halfway through.

Test the cupcakes with a toothpick for doneness. Remove from oven and cool completely before frosting.

I had these at a Christmas party last year, and they were really good!! CHEMISTRY INFORMATION: The pure substances are baking soda {NaHCO3} and salt {NaCI}. The ingredients that are homogeneous are all purpose flour, cocoa powder, vegetable oil, butter milk, red food coloring, vinegar, and vanilla extract. The cupcakes rising is a chemical change. Another chemical change is when the cupcakes turn a lighter color when baking. When the cupcakes are being formed into the cupcakes in the cupcake tins, it is a physical change.
