Fudgy Chocolate Cupcakes

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 cup and 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup and 1 teaspoon butter, softened
2 1/4 cups white sugar
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a muffin pan with paper cupcake liners. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa and salt. Set aside. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition, then stir in the vanilla. Add the flour mixture alternately with the milk; beat well. Fill the muffin cups 3/4 full. Bake for about 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean.

Makes 24 cupcakes.
