Dessert: Chocolate Cupcakes

I made the chocolate cupcakes with a frosting in mind, but the cupcake itself was so good, I decided to put it in the codex. The whole package (frosting and all) did not make the codex, just the cupcake.

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

2 cups sugar


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