Chocolate cupcakes are rich, moist, and bursting with rich chocolate flavor. You’ll get your chocolate fix after one of these cupcakes, thanks to the fudgy chocolate cake and the silky chocolate buttercream. If you want to know how to make chocolate cupcakes with key tips, read on.
Chocolate Cupcakes Ingredients
1 13 cup all-purpose flour 14 tsp baking soda
2 tablespoons baking soda
34 cup chocolate powder, unsweetened
18 teaspoon salt 3 tablespoons softened butter
12 cup granulated sugar
14 teaspoon vanilla extract 2 eggs
1 quart milk
How to make chocolate cupcakes
The first step
Preheat the oven to 350°F (175 degrees C). Prepare a muffin tin by lining it with paper or foil liners. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa, and salt in a mixing bowl. Place aside.
Cream the butter and sugar together in a large mixing basin until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating thoroughly after each addition, and then whisk in the vanilla extract. Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the milk. Fill the muffin cups 3/4 of the way full.
In a preheated oven, bake for 15 to 17 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean. When completely cool, top with your preferred frosting.
Chocolate Cupcake Baking Tricks
Stick to the Recipe
Well, of course. This appears to be self-evident, doesn’t it? Actually… no! We frequently alter ingredients in recipes based on what we have on hand. Substituting eggs, lowering sugar, substituting liquid sweetener, all-purpose flour for cake flour, baking soda for powder (no! don’t do that! ), egg whites for whole eggs, and so on. I do not advocate doing this unless specifically stated in the recipe. Don’t squander your time, effort, or money!
Don’t over- or under-mix
It shouldn’t be too much or too little. Make careful to incorporate the wet and dry ingredients in the cupcake batter *just until* they are mixed. Overmixing batter, whether for cakes, cupcakes, breads, muffins, or other baked goods, results in a tough-textured baked item. Don’t start the mixer and then leave the room. Oh my goodness! Not to get all nerdy on you (hello, have we met?) However, if you overmix the batter, you risk over-developing the gluten.
Cupcake Liners of Superior Quality
Did you realize that a cupcake liner is rather important?!?! Doesn’t that seem ridiculous? A few years back, I began using higher quality + grease-proof liners. My cupcakes no longer stuck to the sides of the wrapper (ugh!!) and the liners no longer leaked oil. If the cupcake liner feels cheap, it most likely is.
