Moist Chocolate Cupcakes

Ingredients:
2 cups white sugar
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup boiling water


Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together sugar, flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Once combined, add in the eggs, milk, oil and vanilla. Mix batter for 2 minutes on medium speed. Stir in boiling water last. Batter will be thin! Pour about 1/4 cup of batter into each cupcake cup.
  3. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until tooth pick or butter knife comes out clean after placing it in the center of the cake. 
  4. Let cupcakes cool for about 10 minutes before adding the frosting

Peanut Butter Frosting

Ingredients:
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup creamy peanut butter
3 tablespoons milk
2 cups confectioners sugar

Directions:
  1. In a medium to large bowl, beat butter and peanut butter until smooth
  2. Once the butters are blended and smoothed, mix in sugar 1/2 cup at a time until all of it has been added. At this point, the batter will be thick, so add milk in one tablespoon at a time. Beat the frosting for at least 3 minutes until it gets nice and fluffy. 
  3. When frosting is complete, frost the cupcakes, add some Reese's pieces and enjoy!

  7. These look really good. I have been looking for a good chocolate cake recipe and this one might the perfect thing. I like that it has "real" ingredients and not made with a "box cake". I find that really annoying.
