Ultimate Chocolate Cupcake from the Cupcake Project. I love that Steph (the blogger) users “explorers” to test bake her creations in her mission to create “the ultimate” cupcakes! When you really want to make something special, this is the only chocolate cupcake recipe you need. Yes, the ingredient list is longer. Yes, you will use more than one bowl. But believe me, it is worth it. Light and fluffy yet incredibly moist with an intense chocolate flavour.
Dense Chocolate Mud Cupcake from Taste.com.au. For when you want something crazy rich, dense and moist, “death by chocolate”!
Gluten Free Chocolate Cupcakes from 52 Kitchen Adventures – I kid you not when I say you can’t even tell these are gluten free! The Nutella Frosting in this recipe is sensational too.
Skinny Chocolate Cupcakes by Tide and Thyme – the fact is, when a cupcake has hardly any fat in it, it won’t be the same as one that uses a lot. But when you absolutely have to have a chocolate treat but you don’t want to completely blow your calorie budget, these are the perfect skinny chocolate cupcakes. The low fat frosting recipe is great too!
Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes with Mocha Frosting (also Gluten Free) by Erica’s Sweet Tooth. I made these for a gluten free friend. I had to get most of the ingredients especially, and to be honest, I was a bit dubious. But they turned out incredible! Really chocolatey and moist, and a great crumb texture!
