Chocolate Cupcakes

Chocolate Cupcakes - food.com
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1 1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 cups sugar
3/4 cup hot water
3/4 cup milk
2 large eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Sift the flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt into the bowl of a heavy mixer fitted with the paddle attachment; add sugar.

Turn the mixer on low and add, in order; water, milk, eggs, oil and vanilla; scrape down the sides of the bowl and beat on medium, briefly, to achieve a smooth batter.

Scoop the batter into muffin tins lines with paper baking cups; each cup should be about half full; slide the tins onto a baking sheet and bake at 325° until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 30 minutes.

Allow cupcakes to cool completely, then frost.
