Why I Love This Recipe

The first mention of a cupcake recipe was in 1796, and it was a simple recipe with measurements like 'a pound of butter, a pound of sugar, a pound of flour, and 20 eggs'.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
For the chocolate frosting:
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
2 cups confectioners' sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a muffin tin with cupcake liners.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt.

In a separate bowl, mix the buttermilk, vegetable oil, eggs, and vanilla extract.

Gradually add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, stirring until just combined.

Fill each cupcake liner two-thirds full with the batter.

Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean.

Let the cupcakes cool completely before frosting.

For the chocolate frosting, beat the butter until creamy.

Gradually add the confectioners' sugar and cocoa powder, mixing until smooth.

Pour in the milk and vanilla extract, and beat until light and fluffy.

Frost the cooled cupcakes using a piping bag or spatula.

Enjoy your decadent chocolate cupcakes!

Pairs Well With

These indulgent chocolate cupcakes pair perfectly with a rich and velvety glass of red wine, such as a Cabernet Sauvignon, to complement the deep chocolate flavors.
