Chocolate Cupcake

I've made this delectable choco cupcake over a month ago. But then I's in no mood to catch some good pics and so are the pictures :( . Seriously I's looking for some good coffee cupcake but then Saras told me to try the Hershey's chcolate cupcake which she also tried n relished way back. I heard it tasted heavenly , So went on ahead with no icing/frosting idea in my mind ..Seriously am not much of a fan and I discard those (mostly) when I have a cake..

Ingredients :

Dry Ingredients :
All purpose flour / Maida - 1 3/4cup
Unsweetened cocoa - 3/4cup
Sugar - 2 cups
Baking powder - 1 1/2 tsp
Baking soda  - 1 1/2 tsp
Salt - 1tsp

Wet Ingredients :

Vegetable oil  - 1/2 cup
Boiling water - 1 cup
Milk - 1 cup
Vanilla extract - 2 tsp
Eggs - 2

** Used Nutella for icing

Method :
  • Preheat the oven to 350 deg F. Line the cupcake pan with the cupcake covers.
  • Mix together all the dry ingredients and then add the wet ingredient oil, milk ,vanilla ,eggs and beat on medium speed for 2 minutes using a mixer. Now add in the hot water and combine well . Now the batter would be very thin.
  • Pour in the batter in the respective cupcake liners ( fill them 2/3 rd )  and bake for 30 to 35 minutes.
Notes :
  • Actually I made half the measurement and  this would yield 13 to 14 cupcakes depends on the size of the pan.
  • My oven took 17 minutes to finish baking 12 cupcakes.
  • Better use a toothpick and insert in the middle of the cake when u cross over 15 minutes . If  comes sout clean, then ur cake is done. If not, just check for every other minute till it's done.
  • I don like frosting in general, so, used nutella for few cupcakes.
