You guys absolutely love it!. One of the most frequently asked questions that I get is:. Can I use that recipe to make cupcakes?. The answer is: yes!. And that’s exactly what I’m going to show you how to do today. We’re going to start here in a large mixing bowl.
Amazing Chocolate Cupcakes Recipe
- You’ll need 1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour.
- 1 1/2 cups of sugar.
- 3/4 cup of high quality cocoa powder.
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda.
- 3/4 teaspoon of salt.
- And 3/4 teaspoon of baking powder.
Then, I’m just going to give this a quick mix together. Then we can start adding in our wet ingredients. You’ll need 3/4 of a cup of buttermilk. If you don’t have buttermilk, you should check out. my buttermilk substitutes.
There’s lots of options. You can find that in the video description. Pour that on in. along with the same amount, 3/4 of a cup of warm water. You’ll also need. 1/4 cup of vegetable oil. which will keep this cake nice and moist. 2 eggs. and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Mix this in. And that’s it for the cake batter. It’s just as easy as a boxed cake mix. and let me tell you it tastes a whole lot better.
Next we’re going to put this into a cupcake pan. so you’ll need to line it with little cupcake liners. You want to fill each cupcake liner. about 2/3rds of the way full. That was a little more like 3/4 of the way full. so I’ll take a little bit out so that it is only 2/3rds. This recipe makes 24 cupcakes so you’ll either need. 2 pans or just bake them one pan of 12 at a time.
You’ll need to bake these in a 325 degree oven. for 22 minutes. While the cupcakes are baking, make your frosting. On my most amazing chocolate cake recipe. I use a chocolate cream cheese buttercream. that is just amazing!. But a lot of you have asked for just a. plain chocolate buttercream so that’s what. I’m going to show you how to make today. It starts with 1 1/2 cups of softened salted butter. You want this to be softened to room temperature.
How to make Amazing Chocolate Cupcakes
Plop that into a large mixing bowl. and beat it until it is creamy and fluffy. That should take just about 1 minute. Then we’re going to add in. 3/4 of a cup of high quality cocoa powder. You guys always ask me what I mean by. high quality cocoa powder. Usually you can tell by the price. So use the highest quality that you can find and afford. I’m telling you it really makes a difference. You’ll also need 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.
And mix this in. Once the cocoa powder is all mixed in. it’s time to start slowly adding in some powdered sugar. You’ll need about 3 to 4 cups. depending on how sweet you like it. I add it in about 1/2 cup maybe 2/3 of a cup at a time. and then mix in between. If your frosting gets too thick you can always thin it out. with a tablespoon or two of milk. You should end up with a nice thick,. creamy chocolate frosting. I’m going to transfer all of this frosting to some. piping bags and set it aside until we are. ready to frost our cupcakes.
Once your cupcakes are finished baking. pull them out of the oven, remove them, and place them. onto a wire rack to cool completely. Do not try and frost your cupcakes while they are. still warm or your frosting will melt all over the place. There’s lots of ways to frost a cupcake. but I’m just going to take an open star tip and give it a little swirl.
