Chocolate cupcakes.

Hey Guys!

Today I am sharing with you guys my favourite chocolate cupcake recipe.

I use this recipe every time I make cupcakes and I have perfected it so you can get the best chocolate cupcakes everything!

This recipe will make around 12-16 cupcakes depending on the size of your tray.


For the cake mixture-

3 eggs

6 ounces of caster sugar (granulated sugar is fine)

6 ounces of unsalted butter

6 ounces of flour

2 ounces of cocoa powder (you can change this amount depending on how chocolatey you want the cakes to be)

A dash of milk (I use semi-skimmed milk)

1 and a half teaspoons of vanilla extract (you can change this amount depending on if you want the cakes to taste of vanilla)

For the icing –

300g of icing sugar

150g of unsalted butter

2 teaspoons of vanilla extract 


1- Pre-heat your oven to 190 degrees Celsius

2- Cream together the butter and the sugar

3- Add the 3 eggs, mixing inbetween adding the eggs

4- Sift in the flour and cocoa powder

5- Mix this all together until the mixture is creamy

6 (optional)- Add a dash of milks to the mixture

7- Add the vanilla extract

8- Evenly distribute the mixture between 12 cupcake cases (I use an ice cream scoop to help get the proportions right)

9- Bake the cakes for around 15 minutes until they are soft to the touch

10- When the cakes have cooled, make the icing and ice them (I used a small star nozzle to ice the cakes but you can do Ice them however you want)

11 (optional)- Add sprinkles to the top of the cakes (I used rainbow sprinkles for a splash of colour)

I hope you enjoyed reading this blog post and enjoy making some chocolate cupcakes!
