1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup granulated sugar
½ cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 large egg, room temperature
½ cup buttermilk, room temperature
½ cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
½ cup very hot water
Heat oven to 180 ºC. Line a cupcake pan with paper liners.
Combine the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl and whisk together.
Combine the egg, buttermilk, oil, and vanilla in another bowl and whisk together.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix using a stand mixer until combined.
Add the hot water to the batter and mix again, scraping the sides of the bowl as necessary, until combined. Batter will be thin.
Fill cupcake liners half full, then bake for 18-21 minutes, until a toothpick comes out with only a few moist crumbs when used to test a cupcake.
Cool completely before frosting.
