1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon vinegar

Method
2
Mix all ingredients for cupcake together until moist and well blended.
3
Put in cupcake cups and bake for 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees F.
4
To make the frosting, melt the chocolate in a heat-proof bowl set over a pot of simmering water.
5
Set aside to cool until just barely warm.
6
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the cream cheese and butter on medium-high speed until pale and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes.
7
Gradually mix in the confectioners’ sugar, cocoa powder and salt. Beat in the melted and cooled chocolate and then the sour cream.

Continue beating until the mixture is smooth and well blended. Frost cupcakes immediately before the chocolate hardens and the frosting sets.
