More chocolate in the pantry

I'm still working on my kitchen cabinets............clearing ,cleaning and reorganizing. Oh yes.......lots more chocolate powder to use up. Finally emptied the Hershey container and on to the Doste chocolate but,wait,is that a recipe for the best chocolate cake on that Hersey box?Can't pass that up.Let's see if this is all it claims to be.
1) Sifted dry ingredients of 2 cups of sugar,3/4 cup of chocolate cocoa,1&1/2 teas.baking powder 1&1/2teas baking soda,1 teas salt.

2)in a separate bowl I whisked 2 eggs 1 cup of milk 1/2 cup vegetable oil 2 teas vanilla. Pour liquid in to sifted ingredients and mix well.

3) Now stir in 1 cup of very hot water...............sounds crazy  Your batter will now be VERY thin but, don't worry it's all good.
Fill 24 lined cupcake tins 2/3 full. This is more of a pour thing. I make lots of muffins so .......batter is not quite the same texture
As you can see I was off on the 2/3 ...............I guess I was closer to 4/5th. Not to worry Cupcakes didn't stick to the pan and I was able to trim excess away and save it for another recipe

Here they are all dressed for their coming out party and looking fabulous.If you want a printed version of the recipe,you can find the directions by clicking HERE These were sooo good my husband had me make them again..........I also discovered that you can freeze them and take out just a few as needed and I swear they taste as fresh as just made.Looks like we'll be making lots of cupcakes this summer but, that's not a bad thing....................said the hobbit

Okay, I get drawn to chocolate like an ant to honey. Love it, love it! I bought a bunch of cupcake liners before Easter - here is another reason to use them. Thanks!
