Instruction: How to make chocolate cupcakes
Step 1: To get started in a medium-sized mixing bowl measure out 1 cup of white granulated sugar. To the sugar, we’re going to crack in 2 medium-sized eggs. Measure out half a cup of neutral oil like vegetable or canola and pour into the bowl. Lastly, add about half a teaspoon of vanilla, Use a whisk to mix everything together until well combined. Set the wet ingredients to the side while you work on the dry.
Step 2: In a larger mixing bowl sieve in the dry ingredients, the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. You’ll need one and a half cups of all-purpose flour or cake flour. Next add half a cup of cocoa powder, whichever kind you have, just make sure it’s unsweetened. Next, we’ll need half a teaspoon of both baking powder and baking soda. Finally, add a pinch of salt to round off the flavors and sieve the ingredients into the large mixing bowl.
Step 3: Next, mix all the ingredients together to make the chocolate cupcake batter. Add half of the wet ingredients as well as half of the buttermilk, you’ll need one cup of buttermilk in total. Use a wooden to fold the batter together until the wet ingredients and buttermilk have been incorporated. Follow with the remaining and fold together until just combined.
Note: Adding the wet ingredients in half at a time helps to reduce the number of lumps in the batter as well as makes sure everything is mixed well while not being over-mixed.
Step 4: Line a 12 pan cupcake tin with paper liners and use a 1/4 cup cookie scoop to divide the batter and fill the tins. Bake the cupcakes in a hundred and eighty 350 F oven for approximately 15-20 mins or till the cupcakes spring back whilst pressed lightly within the center. Cool the cupcakes completely before redecorating.
How to decorate Chocolate cupcakes with buttercream
- To make the chocolate buttercream You’ll need one cup or 2 sticks of room temperature butter. It’s very important that your butter is at room temperature. Place your butter in the bowl of a stand mixer or a large bowl if you are using a hand mixer. Mix on medium velocity first, earlier than growing it to a high pace for approximately 5 mins or till the butter is pale, and has nearly doubled in volume.
- When your butter is incredibly light a fluffy it’s time for the sugar. You need to use icing sugar for this recipe, It’s easiest to add your sugar in thirds, so it incorporates faster and you don’t end up losing half of it outside the bowl. Mix on low speed first until it is mostly incorporated before turning the mixer up higher. When are ready to add the last lot of sugar to the bowl also add the half cup of cocoa powder.
- Mix the last of the sugar and cocoa powder at low speed until it is mostly incorporated. Turn your mixer on too low and stream in about half a cup of milk. Add more milk if it’s still too thick but just a dash at a time. Give the bowl another scrap down to get all of the sugar and butter that has stuck to the sides and add a touch of vanilla essence, and mix it on medium speed for another few minutes.
