Double Chocolate Cupcakes are rich, delicious, and loaded with chocolate flavor. They’re perfect for parties or a weeknight dessert.
Hello! My name is Jamie from the blog My Baking Addiction and I’m here today sharing one of my favorite cupcake recipes with you.
When I was contemplating what dessert to share here on Joan’s site, I knew I wanted it to be simple, decadent and of course, brimming with chocolate.
This recipe for Double Chocolate Cupcakes has always held a special place in my heart because it was one of the very first recipes that I posted on my blog. And all these years later, it still remains one of the most requested recipes for family parties.
The best part of all, the batter comes together in one bowl in less than 5 minutes, so they’re perfect for just about any occasion – even a random Tuesday night.
Of course, a chocolate cupcake is the perfect base for just about any flavor frosting, but I have to say, our favorite flavor combination is straight up chocolate buttercream. Add on a few chocolate sprinkles or mini chocolate chips and you pretty much have a chocolate trifecta!
How can you possibly go wrong with a fluffy buttercream loaded with cocoa powder and melted chocolate? Ya can’t, ya just can’t.
Not only is this buttercream perfect for cupcakes, it’s also great on cookies, cakes, and straight off the spatula.
Joan and I spent some time in Jamaica together just before she passed away, and I have to tell you, she had me in stitches most of the time. Especially when she was asking – no, telling – the waiter for his hot chocolate recipe (the most information he’d part with is that it’s made with allspice berries, the favorite spice of Jamaica) because she just had to be able to replicate it at home. We had many laughs during those four days, and Joan’s love for chocolate every damn day was abundantly clear.
Go ahead and make these cupcakes for your family tonight. They really will take only a few minutes, and you’ll be on your way to your chocolate quota for the day. Just like Joan would want.
