Molten Center Chocolate Cupcakes

My team mates at work have been bugging me to get something home made before I bid farewell to them soon. I made 2 batches each of vanilla cupcakes with chocolate chips and molten center choco cupcakes both adapted from Divya's blog. I made minor modifications to this recipe. My batter turned out to be quite stiff and I had to add more amount of milk (than mentioned in the recipe) to loosen it to dropping consistency. I substituted butter with oil. Also do serve them by warming in microwave for the chocolate at the center to melt. Post with vanilla cupcake recipe would be up pretty soon.

(I got 18 cupcakes with the quantity mentioned)
Butter - 55 gms (I replaced with oil)
Castor Sugar - 55 gms
Flour - 85 gms
Baking powder - 1 tsp
Cocoa powder - 1 tbsp
Egg - 1
Vanilla - 1 tsp
Milk - 1-2  tbsp (I added half a cup of milk)
Chocolate - 100 gms, chopped into small cubes (I used morde dark compound)

1. Preheat oven to 190C. Line a muffin tin with liners.
2. Sift together flour, baking powder and cocoa powder. Keep aside.
3. Beat oil and sugar till light and fluffy.
4. Mix in egg and vanilla, beat for one more minute.
5. Fold in the dry ingredients and beat until the last trace of flour disappears. If the batter seems too stiff, add milk to 'loosen' the batter. The final batter should be of dropping consistency.
6. Pour half of the batter into the cupcake molds. Place chopped chocolate pieces in the center. Pour the other half of the remaining batter and cover the chocolate. Molds should be filled to 3/4th of its height to let the batter space to raise.
7. Bake for 20-22 minutes or till the cupcakes have risen and firm on top.
Let it cool for 2-3 minutes, then remove the cupcakes from the tray and cool on a wire rack.
