Who says holiday baking is all about cookies? We had a hankering for some chocolate cupcakes, so searched for a new recipe to try. We typically go for a devil's food cake because it is more moist than most from-scratch chocolate cakes. But we are always on the lookout for a cake with real chocolatey flavor. And we found it!!
This recipe, very slightly adapted from Stefani at Cupcake Project, really does yield The Best Chocolate Cupcakes we've ever eaten. We topped it with their Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting and found that combo to be a chocoholic's dream.
These cupcakes are tender, moist and densely chocolate. They're even moist and tender several days later, not dry and ashy as chocolate cupcakes can sometimes be. Not that these little beauties will be around that long.
This makes 16 standard size cupcakes.
