Chocolate Cupcakes

I normally wouldn't
pick a recipe with
so much sugar
but for my girly's birthday
why not!

The Best Chocolate Cupcakes
click on the link
for the original recipe

2 cups Flour
2 cups Sugar
¼ teaspoons Salt
4 Tablespoons (heaping) Cocoa
1 cup Butter
1 cup Boiling Water
½ cups Buttermilk
2 whole Beaten Eggs
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 teaspoon Vanilla

In a mixing bowl
combine flour, sugar, and salt

In a saucepan, melt butter
add cocoa
stir together
add boiling water
allow mixture to boil for 30 seconds
then turn off heat

Pour over flour mixture

and stir lightly to cool

In a measuring cup
pour the buttermilk
and add beaten eggs
baking soda and vanilla

Stir buttermilk mixture into butter/chocolate mixture

put cupcake wrappers
in the muffin tins
this made 1 1/2 dozen cupcakes
be sure to let
the birthday girl
lick the spoon after

bake at 350
for 20 minutes
or until a toothpick
inserted comes out clean
then you can make a craft
while they cool

after these cooled
we topped them with
The Best Frosting Ever
I'll post that tomorrow
but these cupcakes
were wonderful
certainly one of
the best I've made
