Getting my sugar on!

My little helper and I made some cupcakes yesterday, and she has now discovered her favourite part of baking!  I used my old faithful One Bowl Chocolate Cake recipe (here below) that I have had for so long I have no idea where I got it.  It makes the most moist cake ever!  This time I tried a new glaze that I found here.  It turned out really well, and I like dipping the cupcakes rather than having to frost them with a knife - it's actually kinda fun too.  I'm going to have to explore that website and see what else this chick has up her sleeve!  

For years now my "go-to" baking website has been Joy of Baking.  I have had excellent results from every single recipe I've tried on that site so I can wholeheartedly recommend it.  I especially love the lemon pudding cake, the angel food cake (SO soft!), and the basic brownie recipe (she has a lot of variations).

This is what she did when I asked if it was yummy!  

One Bowl Chocolate Cake

2 cups white sugar
1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 tsps baking powder
1 1/2 tsps baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1/2 cup vegetable
2 tsps vanilla extract
1 cup boiling water

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).  Grease and flour two 9 inch pans.
2. In a large bowl, combine first six ingredients.  Make a well in the center and add eggs, milk, oil, and vanilla.  Beat for two minutes at medium speed.  Stir in boiling water.
3. Pour into the two prepared cake pans.  Bake for 30-35 minutes, (maybe a bit less if you make cupcakes), until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean.  Cool for 10 minutes in the pan, then turn out onto a wire rack and continue cooling.
