Delicious Chocolate Cupcakes

These were, BY FAR, the BEST homemade chocolate cupcakes I've ever tasted! This recipe was inspired by Glory from Glorious Treats. Thank you, Glory! You are my newest favorite cupcake baker! I am so excited to share my version, which I tweaked just a teensy bit. She is way more experienced in the cupcake world, so I didn't wanna stray too far away from her original recipe. we go!
{ Prep Time: 10 mins / Cook Time: 22-24 mins / Difficulty: Easy / Yields: 24 cupcakes }

2 cups sugar
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
3 eggs
1 cup skim milk
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 cup boiling water

1. Preheat oven to 350ยบ. Line muffin tins with paper liners.
2. In a large mixing bowl fitted with the paddle attachment, stir together sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
3. Add eggs, milk, applesauce, and vanilla. Beat on medium speed for 1 min.
4. Stir in the boiling water (this makes the batter runny, but Glory says this is how it's supposed to be!)
5. Fill liners about 3/4 full with the batter. (I went with Glory's suggestion here and it worked wonderfully: pour the batter into a large measuring cup with a pour spout and use that to fill the liners.)
6. Bake cupcakes for about 22-24 mins. Cupcakes are done when a toothpick inserted in the center of cupcakes comes out clean.
7. Remove tins from oven and place on wire racks to cool. Make sure cupcakes are completely cooled before frosting.

Frost with your favorite frosting . . . a couple to try are: peanut butter frosting, chocolate buttercream frosting, or vanilla buttercream frosting!
