Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line cupcake tins with paper liners.
Whisk the sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a mixing bowl.

Gradually add the boiling water, milk, and oil and blend until the batter is smooth.
Using a medium scoop, fill the paper-lined cupcake tins with the prepared batter.
Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes until an inserted toothpick comes clean.
Allow them to cool slightly before transferring to wire racks.
