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.
