How To Make The Best Chocolate Cupcakes
Start with sifting all the dry ingredients including flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder and a pinch of salt. Give this a quick whisk and make sure everything is combined.
Next up, the wet ingredients. And this includes eggs, milk and oil. Mix everything together using an electric mixer. Again, make sure all the ingredients are at room temperature. Now, you can add in half of the flour mixture and bring them together before adding in the remaining flour mixture.
Onto the next crucial step of making these chocolate cupcakes, pour in some hot coffee. Freshly brewed coffee is the best in this recipe. And you heard it right – the coffee needs to be ‘hot’. It’s the secret ingredient to accentuate the richness of the cake.
The consistency of the batter needs to be very thin. Pour this into cupcake tins and bake.
While the cupcakes are cooling on the wire rack, you can whip up the frosting. For extra chocolate addition to the frosting, you will need to melt some chocolate chips. Whipping up the frosting is quite straightforward. All you need to do is whisk together softened butter, sugar, melted chocolate, cocoa powder and a splash of vanilla extract.
Finally, top your best chocolate cupcakes with frosting and dig in!
