Hi guys,

 I just baked a batch of chocolate cupcakes today and they rise absolutely perfect! They taste pretty good but they were just a little too moist. Is there anyway i can tweak the recipe? Below was the recipe i used. Thank you! Please help


Baking spray
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 whole eggs
2 sticks butter
4 tablespoons (heaping) cocoa powder
1 cup boiling water

I don't understand why you wouldn't want a "moist cupcake.." You could always bake them a little longer or not frost and store them right away - leaving the cupcake to dry out for a little.

I'd try adding more cocoa.  My recipe calls for 3/4 cup.
