  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cups unsweetened cocoa (best quality available)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract (best quality available)
  • 1 cup boiling water


Step 1
Line muffin tin with paper liners. Heat oven to 350*F.
Step 2
In a large mixing bowl, stir together sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
Step 3
Add eggs, milk, oil and vanilla. Beat on medium speed for one minute.
Step 4
Stir in boiling water (the batter will be thin, don’t worry, this is right).
Step 5
Fill liners 2/3 full with batter. (I usually put the batter into a large measuring cup with a pour spout, and then pour the batter into the liners.)
Step 6
Bake cupcakes for approximately 22-24 minutes.
Step 7
Cool completely on wire rack before frosting.
