Chocolate Cupcakes

My little helper.

The Perfect Chocolate Cupcakes
-Chef In Training

1/2 c cocoa
1 c hot water
1 c buttermilk
2 c sugar
2 eggs
1/2 c vegetable oil
1 1/2 t vanilla extract
2 1/2 c flour
2 t baking powder
1 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1/2 c whipping cream

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease cupcake tins. (This makes a big batch. I only have 2 mini muffin tins, but the minis are our favorite).
2. In a medium bowl, whisk cocoa and hot water until cocoa is dissolved. Add buttermilk and sugar and whisk until combined. Add eggs, oil, and vanilla and whisk until combined. Whisk in flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt until you no longer see lumps. Finally, stir in cream.
3. Bake for 18-22 minutes or until done. Let cool. I store extras in the freezer and defrost before frosting.

Clearly, Aubrey only eats the top of her cupcakes...
