I have about a bazillion things to do this afternoon and wasn't going to blog at all, but then realized I could share with you this fabulous recipe for the cupcakes I'm making today (for six of the most incredible young women I know.)
My favorite thing about this recipe, other than the fact that is is very delicious, is that it is pretty much as simple as a cake mix. Dump dry ingredients in mixer, dump wet ingredients on top, mix and bake!
Combine in bowl of stand mixer:
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
- 1 cup cocoa
- 2 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 large eggs
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1 cup brewed black coffee
- 1/2 cup safflower oil (canola oil can be substituted in a pinch)
- 1 tsp vanilla
Scoop or pour into 24 muffin cups and bake @ 350 degrees for 16-20 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
If you do try this recipe, please come back and let me know what you thought!
