Serves | Prep Time | Cook Time 15-18


1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
2/3 cup canola oil
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
2 cups boiling water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Grease and flour 2-12 cup muffin pans. (I don't recommend liners for these cupcakes)

In a large bowl, beat sugar, canola oil, eggs and vanilla for 4 minutes.

Sift together flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

Add flour mixture alternately with boiling water to the sugar mixture. Beat well after each addition.

Pour into prepared cupcake pans. Bake 15-18 minutes, or until cupcakes springs back to the touch. Let cool completely before frosting with your favorite chocolate frosting.

I like that this has ingredients I'm likely to have around the house anytime. It's handy in the event my son needs cupcakes in a rush for school.
