You know how I am about good chocolate, and this cupcake recipe by Nicole Weston knows how to do it up right!Â Enjoy!
- 1 1/3 cups all purpose flour
- Â½ teaspoon baking soda
- Â½ teaspoon baking powder
- Â¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup sugar
- Â¼ cup butter, room temperature
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup buttermilk
Go ahead & preheat oven to 350F or 175 C. Â Place liners in a 12-cup muffin tin.
In a medium bowl- stir together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
In a large bowl- using an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugar together until it looks creamy. Beat in the egg and the vanilla extract until mixture is smooth.
Add half of the flour mixture to the butter mixture and stir until almost combined. Add buttermilk and stir, again until almost combined. Add the rest of the flour and stir until all ingredients are mixed in and no flour remains.
Fill muffin cups 2/3-3/4 full with batter.
Bake for 18-20 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean.
Let cupcakes cool for about 5 minutes, then remove from the muffin pan. Cool completely on a wire rack before frosting.
Chocolate Frosting Ingredients:
- 1 stick butter, room temperature
- 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
- 3 cups powdered sugar
- 1/3 cup milk (any kind)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and beat, with an electric mixer, until frosting is creamy, 3-5 minutes. (Start at a low speed to avoid getting sugar everywhere!)
