These chocolate cupcakes will make your mouth water as you smell them baking in your kitchen. They have an extraordinarily rich chocolate flavor, and you can pair the cupcake up with any frosting that you choose. You can even turn them into a black and white cupcake using a cream cheese center. It’s a basic recipe that you can turn to for all kinds of recipes and occasions.



Frosting is separate in this recipe. We suggest a simple whipped vanilla frosting or a chocolate frosting. If you want to get fancy, a raspberry frosting compliments these cupcakes well.

Serving Suggestions

Let the cupcakes cool completely before you frost them. Otherwise, the frosting will melt and run. You can store the cupcakes in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week.
