Get ready to make the best homemade chocolate cupcakes ever! These cupcakes are so moist, full of flavor, and have the perfect texture. They're incredibly chocolaty, especially when you top them with a big swirl of my Perfect Chocolate Buttercream.
I first made these when I was asked to bring some cupcakes for a gathering, I can't turn down an opportunity to share baked goods! I could not find a recipe that I wanted to make, though. Sometimes I can be quite picky when searching for recipes, which is probably why I have so many to share. I didn't want to use coffee, and I wanted to include baking chocolate, so I made my own recipe and they were perfect. I have made these cupcakes several times since then, each time as good as the last. This recipe is here to stay!
The recipe calls for baking chocolate to be melted into the cupcake batter. This is what makes these cupcakes so rich, so don't skip this step! The easiest way I have found to melt the chocolate without burning it is to heat the milk until it steams and then pour it over and let it sit while you prepare the rest. If you prefer using a double boiler then that would work as well, but I prefer to just microwave my milk and pour it over the baking chocolate in the interest of saving time.
These cupcakes are going to be your new favorite! What occasion are you going to make them for?
