BASIC: chocolate cupcakes

I've baked amazing cupcakes today! Although I didn't decorate them with frosting today, I've made them so many times before and they are definitely my favorite recipe for the chocolate cupcakes batter. The frosting is up to you, you can decorate it with whatever your little heart desires. I'm just gonna give you the BASE today.
Another recipe to my BASIC series.
(first one was this one, if you haven't checked it out yet, go!)



(makes 12 muffins)
  • 1/2 cup (50g) unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 cup boiling hot water
  • 1 1/3 cup (175g) all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder 
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup (113g) room temperature butter
  • 1 cup light brown sugar (you can substitute with white, yet it, in my opinion, tastes better with brown)
  • 2 large eggs
  • a few drops of vanilla extract

What to do?

    1. Preheat oven to 190C and line muffin tins with paper liners.
    2. In a small bowl stir until smooth water and cocoa.
    3. In a medium bowl whisk together flour, baking powder & cocoa.
    4. In a big bowl beat together butter with sugar with an electric mixer. When nice and fluffy start adding the eggs, one at a time, and beat that together Add vanilla extract.
    5. Mix in (with a spatula) flour mixture. Then add the cocoa and stir it all just until incorporated. 
    6. Fill muffin tins til about 2/3 and bake for 16-20 minutes .
    7. Let them cool down and DECORATE.

    And this oldie was my frosted basic chocolate cupcake ;)

    The recipe is adapted from recipe :) 

    Have a great week!

    1. I love chocolate cupcakes! and this looks irresistible and so healthy.. I really wanna try this too♥
      cakes bakery in Brooklyn

      1. Well I'm not sure about "healthy" as they are still cupcakes! But they are amazing and so FLUFFY and I definitely suggest trying them!
        And if you want a healthy option I recommend my zucchini cupcakes which taste DELICIOUS and are really healthy as you substitute butter with the vegetable!

    2. Hello Miss Ann! I have already tried this and its really very delicious, I can say healthy compared to junk foods hehe because My siblings and I consider eating cupcakes over the junk foods.. I haven't tried the Zucchini and its My first time knowing about that recipe, but I must try it also.. Thanks a lot for the share Miss Ann. xx :)

      1. Thanks, that's so nice to hear your feedback! Try the zucchini ones, they are like magic, you don't taste the zucchini at all, they are just nice cupcakes :)
        And yeah well, homemade bakings are definitely a healthier option to many junk foods or store-bought sweets. And they're also so enjoyable to make!
