Stuff that Cakehole! (dedicated to Royanne)

Chocolate Cupcakes stuffed with my "secret peanut butter fattness"
Step 1: 2 cups sugar, 1 3/4 cups AP flour, 3/4 cups cocoa, 1.5 tsp baking soda, 1.5 tsp baking powder (mhhmm...both), 1 tsp salt, 2 large eggs, 1 cup of milk, 2 tsp vanilla, 1/2 cup of oil (whatever you want- tried it all, it all works), 1 cup of boiling water.
Here's the best part! Just throw it all in a big bowl and mix! I suggest adding the boiling water last- so you don't cook the eggs. The batter will be really thin, but it's suppose to be.

Step 2: fill liners 3/4 full...may I once again suggest an ice cream scoop? Use it.

Step 3: Preheat over to 350...ahh... yeah, should have put that in step 1. You're smart, you'll get it. Bake for 22 minutes (based on my oven) or until cake is springy.

Step 4: with piping bag, stuff each cupcake with enough filling to make it swell but not bust. Takes a delicate hand, but again I have faith you can do it.

Step 5: Ice the hole to cover the surprise (mind out of the gutter perverts...)

Step 6: Test drive one so you don't go giving away crappy cupcakes! Just as I thought- tastes like I might be having two. (I don't like icing so I put one aside for me)
