Fudge marble cupcakes
1 1/2 cup sugar
2 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
2/3 cup veg oil
2 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 cup milk (I used 2%)
2/3 cup Hershey's chocolate syrup
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line the muffin pan with cupcake liners.
Mix the all purpose flour, baking powder, and baking soda. Beat the eggs on low to medium speed for around 1 minute. Then add the sugar and vanilla. Beat for another minute. Then add the flour mix slowly mixing with spatula. Add the milk and beat well. Add the oil and mix thoroughly with the spatula. Then beat the mixture on medium speed till the batter is smooth. Set aside 2 cups of batter and to this batter add the chocolate syrup and mix well.
With a scoop or spoon, fill the cupcake liners with 1/2 yellow cake batter and 1/2 chocolate batter in each cupcake (each cupcake should be 2/3 full). With a fork gently create swirls in the poured batter, don't mix in too hard. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until the toothpick inserted comes out clean.
I made 22 cupcakes from this batter. If you want to frost the cupcakes let them cool for an hour or so. I frosted it with whipped vanilla frosting.
