Is there something called death by chocolate!!! If there is I strongly urge you to make this cake to get the chocolatey ooey...gooey feel......I made this cake 3 times now....and it has topped the list of my favorites....actually it all started when my son (Cheriyan) wanted a chocolate cake so very badly one late Sunday afternoon and I was short of butter.....then I remembered that I had book marked this recipe and gave it a try.....it came out so soft and fluffy that it disappeared fast....and I had to make again.....one thing which I have found is that the cake is a bit low on sugar....so a topping is a must....I topped it with my own homemade chocolate sauce.....
I think it is best to mix the batter with chocolate chips rather than sprinkle chocolate chips on top (like I did, actually I forgot to mix in the batter, only after pouring it into the cups did I remember about them and when I made again.....I mixed them in the batter and it was pure heaven!!

All purpose flour: 2 cups.
Sugar: 1 cup, powdered.
Cocoa: 3/4 cup.
Baking soda: 2 tsp.
Salt: 1/4 tsp.
Milk or cold coffee: 1/2 cup.
Buttermilk: 1 cup (I added 1 tbsp of vinegar to milk).
Vegetable oil: 1/2 cup, I used vanaspati/dalda, melted).
Vanilla essence: 2 tsp.
Chocolate chips: 1 cup.
1. Preheat oven, in a large bowl, whisk together the flour, powdered sugar, cocoa, baking soda, and salt.
2. In your food processor or your mixie jar (the one which you grind dosa batter), put in the milk (I added 2 tsp of nescafe to the milk), butter milk (I added 1 tbsp of vinegar to the plain milk), melted dalda or oil, eggs, and vanilla. Pulse all this in the mixie until mixed nicely. Now pour this into the dry ingredients and stir with a spatula until combined. If the batter is thick can add more milk/water to make it creamy. Stir in the chocolate chips or chunks if you have any.
3. Spoon the batter into the muffin tins that have been lined with paper liner, filling them 3/4 full. Bake for 20 min. I got 24 cupcakes with this batter.
4. Serve with chocolate sauce or any cream icing of your choice.
Enjoy.....will be back soon.
