At about 4 pm today I had a massive chocolate craving and decided to come home and make little chocolate cupcakes. Easy and delicious.
Preheat oven to 350 and place cupcake liners in pan. This recipe yields about 12 big cupcakes.
1 stick of butter
1 cup of brown sugar
1/2 cup of white granulated sugar
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup milk (buttermilk, whole or 2%)
1 teaspoon of good vanilla extract
1.5 cups of white flour
1/2 teaspoon of baking powder and baking soda
pinch of sugar
3/4 cups of dutch cocoa
1/2 cup plus a little extra of chocolate chips. I used dark, but that's just me.
Bring the butter to room temp or just stick it in the microwave. Dump all the sugar in the bowl and beat with an electric hand mixer until nice and creamy. Add in the vanilla extract, milk, sour cream and the egg. Beat a bit more until sort of smooth. With a sifter over the bowl dump in the flour, cocoa, salt, baby soda and baking powder. Mix the dry ingredients in with a wooden spoon. Last but not least mix in the chocolate chips.
Fill the cups all the way up and bake for about 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool slightly and enjoy.
