Best Cupcake Recipe Ever!


Over the weekend I made these awesome chocolate cupcakes with vanilla buttercream frosting and just had to share the recipe!

Cupcakes:

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 2/3 cups sugar
3/4 cup butter
2/3 cup baking cocoa
1 1/4 cups water
1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
2 large eggs

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Beat all ingredients with electric mixer on low speed for 30 seconds, scraping bowl constantly. Beat on high speed for 3 minutes. Pour into muffin cups.

3. Bake for 16-21 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.


Vanilla Buttercream Frosting:

3 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup butter
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 to 2 tablespoons milk

1. Mix powdered sugar and butter in medium bowl with spoon or electric mixer on low speed. Stir in vanilla and 1 tablespoon of milk.

2. Gradually beat in just enough remaining milk to make frosting smooth and spreadable. If frosting is too thick, beat in more milk, a few drops at a time. If frosting becomes too thin, beat in a small amount of powdered sugar.

3. Frost cupcakes and enjoy!!
