One bowl chocolate muffins/ cupcake- martha stewart recipe

     My kiddo loves chocolate cakes than any other flavored cakes. He has been asking  me to bake them for a long time. As I hardly get time to do elaborate cooking and baking with two kids around , I kept on postponing it. After a search , I followed a simple Martha Stewart's one bowl recipe. It was a simple one involving just a putting together of some ingredients in a single bowl and baking it. Less of work, less messy and a fool proof recipe and I made it with easily available ingredients. Also refer notes to follow the original recipe as I have modified the ingredients with those available with me. I am sure to make them again as my son loved it and its really easy!!
