Chocolate Cupcakes

I baked these cupcakes two months back and has been lying in my drafts since then. These cupcakes turned out so soft and moist that my four year old just adored them as much as we did. 

Here you go for the recipe.


Ingredients:
11/3 cup all purpose flour
1 cup hot boiling water
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 cup granulated sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 eggs
2 tsps vanilla extract


Method:
Preheat the oven to 350F / 180C


Mix in the cocoa powder and the boiling water in a seperate bowl. Let it cool to room temperature
Stir the dry ingredients in a bowl (flour, baking powder)
Beat the butter and sugar in a large bowl till frothy and creamy.
Add in the eggs one by one and beat till thick and pale.
Add the vanilla essence and beat till completely mixed.
Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.
Now add the dry ingredients little by little and mix well.
Gently fold in the cocoa mixture and mix till incorporated.
Fill in each muffin cups about 3/4th full. Bake for 15 -18 mins.
