  • Preparation Time:


  • 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.
