Val’s Chocolate Cupcakes

I finished reading Wicked Appetite by Janet Evanovich yesterday, and was inspired to make cupcakes.  I have always used other people’s recipes for cakes, but yesterday, I created a chocolate cupcake that is possibly THE best, most tender and tasty cupcake EVER. The problem now?  Naming it:

Val’s Chocolate Heaven in a Cupcake?
Chocolate Chiffon Cupcakes?
Divine Chocolate Cupcakes?
Oh, this makes about 30 cupcakes.

Val’s Chocolate Heaven Cupcakes:

2 c. sugar,
2 c. flour,
1 c. baking cocoa,
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda,
1 tsp. kosher salt,
2 tsp. vanilla,
2 eggs (slightly beaten),
1 1/4 c. buttermilk,
1/2 c. vegetable oil,
1 c. boiling water,
confectioner’s sugar (for sprinkling).

Preheat oven to 350.  Line cupcake tins with paper liners, spray with non-stick spray.  In a a large bowl, sift flour, baking soda, baking cocoa, salt, and sugar.  Add buttermilk, 2 eggs, vanilla, and oil.  Beat until well mixed.  Stir in boiling water.  Fill about cupcake liners about 3/4.  Bake for 20 minutes.  Cool on cooling rack.  Sprinkle with sugar and eat up!

Enjoy~ V.
