Ladies and gents, this is the only cupcake recipe you'll ever need. I present to you my Easy Chocolate Cupcake Recipe.

Sharing with you one of our family’s favourites: my easy chocolate cupcake recipe. You’re welcome.

Okay, I can’t help but jump on those “National Day” bandwagons. I have to admit, at the beginning of the month, I looked up to see if there were any fun ones for September. When I found out the 27th was National Chocolate Milk Day, I just knew I had to partake.

What better way to celebrate such a sweet day than with my easy chocolate cupcake recipe? I am a cupcake fanatic (but a self-proclaimed cookie enthusiast, no less). I bake cupcakes at least twice a week (don’t ask why – from events to dinner parties, there always seems to be a reason for cupcakes in our household).

Time to chug down a glass of good ol’ chocolate milk with my easy chocolate cupcake recipe. I mean, calories don’t count on National Days like this, right?! We all deserve double-chocolate once in awhile (and this time, it’ll be in my milk and my cupcakes.)

Process

Line a muffin pan with paper cupcake liners (hint: when I’m using plain paper liners, as opposed to the ones with an aluminium lining, I double them!). Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F.

In an electric stand mixer, start beating egg and sugar on medium speed. While that is mixing, sift your dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa powder, and salt in a bowl.

Add vegetable oil and milk into your egg and sugar mixture. Continue mixing.

Slowly add your dry ingredients to your wet ingredients, one third at a time. Mix thoroughly.

Once all of the ingredients are combined, add boiling water and mix. This will make the batter runny – exactly how you want it to be!

Pour batter into your lined muffin pan, about 1/4 cup for each section.

Bake 13-15 minutes and allow to cool on a wire rack.

With an electric mixer, beat butter, sugar, cocoa powder, and milk until smooth. Your buttercream frosting is complete once it forms semi-stiff peaks.

Using a piping bag, frost each cupcake. Top with chocolate chips and enjoy!

  1. They look wonderful. I love the tiny kisses on top! I am not a baker, but I do love creating fun recipes my family enjoys. I’m sure my husband wishes I were a baker though because he’s the one with the sweet tooth.

  2. Well if I am craving a chocolate treat I know what I can make now. These would go so fast and I would always have to make a double batch.

  3. This looks very simple to make and delicious! There’s no going wrong with chocolate cupcakes. Can’t wait to try these.

  4. Oh man this looks delicious! I just started an autoimmune diet but I’m wondering if I can sub out a few of the ingredients and try this!

  5. Glad I was able to stumble upon your website. This is a nice recipe and maybe I can make this on our upcoming Halloween party. I will just add some spooky vibes on the design then.

  6. These cupcakes look mouthwatering! I haven’t baked cupcakes for a while but my family really loves them! I pinned the recipe and will try to make some at the weekend!
