Too long!!

It's been FOREVER since I updated. Unfortunately for me, I still don't have internet at home so I'm finding it difficult to find a time to upload some pictures.....I have made LOADS of things in between posting last and now, so hopefully I'll have some pictures up soon!!

Choc Mint Cupcakes

Everyday Wednesday my boyfriends work have morning tea. This week it was his turn to take something so I jumped at the chance to bake. I made Choc Mint Cupcakes.

I think I've already mentioned that I've got the perfect chocolate cupcake recipe - but I still can't help but fear that they won't turn out nicely when I bake them. They always do though. It's a good recipe!!

Chocolate Cupcakes

2 cups sugar
1-3/4 cups plain flour
3/4 cup cocoa
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup boiling water

Stir together sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt in large bowl. Add eggs, milk, oil and vanilla; beat on medium speed of mixer 2 minutes (I mix by hand though - quite frankly I can't be bothered getting the mixer out for 2 minutes of mixing!!). Stir in boiling water (batter will be thin). Bake at 180 (160 for fan forced) for 20 - 25 minutes.
