This is a recipe from allrecipes.com. These are pretty dense and not as cakey as the name implies but still really good! Also the recipe calls for cocoa powder but it is optional. I don't use it just because I prefer vanilla to chocolate cupcakes but it is entirely your preference! Also...I am not a frosting person (I always use to scrape it off as a kid...haha) so I don't frost mine but definitely you can! Enjoy! I also made mine gluten free and I used Rob's Red Mill's All Purpose Gluten Free Flour.
