chocolate cupcakes

Hey, guys. I apologize for totally disappearing.  As I expected, I got pretty busy when in-laws were here.  We had so much fun and I felt the time spent with them was very blessed.  After they left, I got busy taking orders for cakes/cupcakes, hanging out with friends, and other bunch of not so important stuff.

Anyways, If this wasn’t a food blog, I would keep on talking.  He-He.

These chocolate cupcakes are my favorite.   A really special friend shared this recipe with me several years ago.   They are pretty good.  My kids probably memorized the recipe since they see me making it all the time, unless they were too busy licking the batter.


I used whipping cream, with little bit of icing sugar, vanilla, and shredded coconut for the frosting.

For some reason, I can’t find the pictures I took from my camera..  I guess I deleted the pics before uploading them.  I’m stuck with crappy instagram picture.  Oh well, enjoy!

You will need:

2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 1/ 2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup softened butter
1 1/2 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
3 eggs
2 tsp vanilla essence
1 1/2 cup milk

Preheat oven to 350.  Line your pans with cupcake liners.

Whisk flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt together in large bowl. Set aside.

Using a stand mixer cream butter and sugars together until light and fluffy (about 2 minutes).

Add eggs and vanilla and continue mixing.

Using a spoon, alternately add flour mixture and milk until just blended.

Allow to cool completely before frosting.
