Cupcake Addict

Don’t act surprised or disappointed to see another cupcake recipe… I know neither are actually true of your current state. Be honest, you want to drool over another set of pictures of homemade cupcakes, covered in creamy frosting. Well, here you go. 


I’m not calling you an addict, though if you’re craving these mini guys just as much as me, you may be one after all. It is alright to admit it. If you want to keep denying it, that is alright too. You’re secret is safe with me.

I may have licked the beaters. And the spoon. And the bowl. Twice.

Chocolate Cupcakes

1 cup flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 egg
3/4 cup whole milk

-mix flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
-cream butter and sugar. add egg and vanilla. mix
-alternate adding flour mixture and milk to butter mixture.
-bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes (if mini cupcakes, like mine, bake for 11 minutes)

Once again, I used the fluffy, flour frosting. We truly are in love with that stuff… Timothy sneaks into the kitchen when he thinks I’m not looking and steals several finger-fulls of frosting… He is always so busted. After the cupcakes are frosted, we often take turns eating frosting out of the piping bag… Then sometimes we lick the bowl too. No one else needs to know that though.

I give you permission to hide in your kitchen after everyone else goes to sleep and make these, and then eat them all before everyone else wakes up. Go ahead. It’s worth it. Promise.
