Chocolate Cupcakes

Use this recipe for baking a cake or a batch of cupcakes. I swear they would turn out soft and spongy. This has, by far been THE most successful experiments with ingredients I've ever had. This recipe exemplifies the saying 'Simplicity is profound'. So simple and readily available are the ingredients that go into the making of these cupcakes that you'll want to bake them everyday!
Up until I tried this, I had always considered this one to be the best sponge cake recipe ever. But now, I think I may have a new favorite! You just need two bowls and a spoon to get everything together! Yep, its a real quickie! One of the things I noticed while baking this cake is that the cakes bake better when baked at a lower temperature for a longer time. By doing so, the cake bakes evenly and the top doesn't burn. (But it might just be my experience) I really haven't got anything more to say. SO let's just get to the recipe.
