500g sugar

350g butter

6 eggs

500g flour

100g cocoa

4 teaspoons baking powder

1 1/2 glasses milk

2 teaspoons vanilla essence


Beat the butter and sugar until fluffy.

Add the eggs one by one, add the vanilla essence and beat until the mixture is soft.

In a separate bowl sift the flour, cocoa and baking powder.

Now gradually add the flour mixture to the butter little by little, while mixing.

Add the milk to soften the mixture.

Bake in a greased and lined cupcake tray for 45 minutes to 1 hour at 180C. This makes about 36 cupcakes.
