Easy Double Chocolate Cupcakes with Chocolate Frosting


  • 1/2 cup of cocoa powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon of sea salt
  • 1/2 cup of raw sugar
  • 1/2 cup of brown sugar
  • 2 medium eggs plus 1 medium egg yolk
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 1/2 cup of greek yogurt or sour cream
  • 1/2 cup of hot water
  • Ultimate Chocolate Frosting
  • 1 stick of softened butter
  • 3 cups of powdered sugar
  • 3/4 cup of cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • whole milk for thinning


  1. Pre-heat stove to 350 degrees. Line a cupcake baking pan using liners.
  2. Place vegetable oil, the chocolate chips, along with the butter right into a microwave safe dish. Microwave with 30 second amounts, mixing each 30 seconds, till only just melted.
  3. Blend the flour, the baking soda and the powder, the cocoa powder, along with the sea salt within a medium sized dish. Stir until mixed.
  4. Within a large dish, blend the sugars, the eggs, along with the vanilla. Stir till blended. Add the melted dark chocolate mix, and then stir till blended.
  5. Switch adding the flour mix along with the yogurt to the sugar mix. Blend till just mixed ( I simply made use of a whisk). Include the hot water very last, and blend till it's mixed.
  6. Make use of a cookie scoop to split the mixture equally between your cupcake liners. I filled up mine around 3/4 of the way full, however I would certainly fill slightly less the next time.
  7. Cook for 16 to 18 minutes, or till a tooth-pick comes out clear.
  8. For The Frosting
  9. Whip the butter with high using a blender for around 2 minutes. Next add the powdered sugar along with the cocoa powder, gradually.Next add the vanilla. Add the whole milk as needed for preferred thickness. Whip for around 3 minutes making it fluffier.

I’m Julie. This is where my love of cupcakes, digital photography as well as writing comes to life! How did this recipe thing all begin? In November of 2012, I made the decision that I needed to keep a log of my recipes, so I started a simple recipe blog. This beautiful collection of cupcakes and cafe delights continues to grow every week and I can’t wait to see where it is 5 years down the road. My grandma encouraged all of my baking. At family gatherings with well over 250 individuals the midst of absolutely no where, she consistently was able to create perfect cherry cobblers along with other goodies for dessert over the campfire. It seemed to be like magic for me.
