Homemade Chocolate Cupcakes and Cake

Here is my Chocolate cake recipe that works for cupcakes too! I do not remember where I got this recipe online, it was a while ago. In my opinion, it is just as good as the box cake you buy at the store, without the packaging and added whatever to preserve the ingredients. From scratch is best!


2 cups of white sugar
1 + ¾ cup of flour
¾ cup of cocoa
1 + ½ tsp of baking powder
1 + ½ tsp of baking soda
1 tsp of salt
2 beaten eggs
1 cup of milk
½ cup of veg. oil
2 tsp of vanilla
1 cup of boiling water

Mix the dry ingredients together.
Add the wet ingredients together minus the boiling water!
Combine together until well mixed
Like this.
Add the boiling water and mix slowly until well combined.
Have a helper set up the cupcake liners in the tray
yup, that’s a 24 muffin tray! Bake at 350 for 18 minutes!
Let cool
Decorate those cupcakes!!

For the cake, I use a bunt pan, bake at 350 for 52 minutes!
For 2, 9″ pan cakes, bake at 350 for 33 minutes!

Find my whipping cream icing on the Recipe page! So yummy!
