Delicious chocolate cupcakes. I like it best with 7 minute frosting.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 12-cup standard muffin tin with cupcake liners.
  2. Into a medium bowl, sift together cocoa, flour, baking powder, and salt; set aside. In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each, then beat in vanilla. With mixer on low speed, add flour mixture in two batches, alternating with sour cream and beginning and ending with flour.
  3. Pour batter into cups, filling each 3/4 full. Bake until a toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean, 23 minutes.
  4. Cool in pan 5 minutes; transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Spread with frosting desired.

A definite keeper! Very moist and an instant favorite for the kids. Doubled and made 30 cupcakes.
