1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1/2 cup milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit.

In a mixing bowl, beat butter until softened and smooth. Add sugar and beat for a few minutes, until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating after each addition until well combined.

In a small bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cocoa powder. In a separate bowl, combine milk and vanilla.

Fill cupcake tins about 1/2 full (don't overfill - you only need 1/2) and bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the cupcake comes out clean.

Frost cupcakes and enjoy!!
