Prep: Preheat the oven to 360°F (180°C) and line a 12 cup cupcake pan with liners.
Mix dry ingredients: Add all dry ingredients to a large bowl and whisk until well combined.
Mix wet ingredients: Add all wet ingredients to a medium bowl or measuring cup and whisk until smooth.
Add wet to dry: Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir (no whisk! use a wooden spoon or spatula) just until combined. The batter will be thin.
Fill liners and bake: Divide the batter between the prepared cupcake liners. Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then remove to a cooling rack to cool completely before adding any frosting.
