DIRECTIONS

  • In a small bowl add the boiling water to the cocoa slowly while stirring to prevent lumps until smooth. Let cool to room temperature.
  • In a bowl, sift the flour, baking powder, and salt together. Set aside.
  • Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg and beat until smooth. Beat in the vanilla extract. Add the flour mixture and beat until incorporated. Add the cocoa mixture and stir until smooth.
  • Evenly fill the muffin cups with the batter and bake for about 17-20 minutes or until risen, springy to the touch, and a toothpick inserted into a cupcake comes out clean. Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool.
