DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F and grease or line your muffin tin.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the cocoa, flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
  3. Add the eggs, water, buttermilk, and vanilla, and mix until the lumps are gone, scraping the bowl as you go along.
  4. Fill the muffin tins 3/4 full, and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick pulls out clean.
  5. Let cool. To fill with pudding, slice off a circle in the top of the cupcake, much like you would when removing the top of a pumpkin for carving. Plop some pudding into the hole, and press the cupcake lid back down. Easy!
