Ingredients

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups flour
  • ¾ unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • ½ cup canola oil
  • 1 TBSP vanilla extract
  • 1 cup boiling water

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 35Spray pans with a non stick cooking spray or use liners. I used a Pampered Chef brownie pan. Set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl of an electric mixer fitted with paddle attachment add all of the dry ingredients.
  • Add the eggs, milk, vanilla and oil and mix at medium speed for about 5 minutes.
  • Slowly add in the boiling water. **The batter will be thin and the water may cause the batter to bubble up a little bit. So be sure to add a little at a time and mix on low until all the water is incorporated.
  • Pour batter into prepared pans.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean. **Oven times may vary.

Notes

Simple tip for Swirled Icing
 
When I want a color swirl on my icing I simply put a few drops of the food coloring along the inside of the nozzle of the pastry bag and tip. For these cupcakes, it was purple and then fill the bag with icing (I used store bought cream cheese) . When you squeeze out the frosting to put on the cupcakes it will have a beautiful swirl of color. Easy!
