This is a large batch recipe for rich chocolate cupcakes that surprisingly calls for mayo! Super moist, delicious, and perfect for a party! (Baby’s 1st birthday, anyone?)
*Note: powdered sugar and cream amounts may vary… use enough to get the consistency you want!
Preheat the oven to 350° F. In a small bowl, whisk together the chocolate chips, cocoa and water until smooth. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, soda and powder. In your mixing bowl, cream together the sugars and mayo until smooth, about 3 minutes. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each one. Stir in the vanilla.
Add the flour mixture alternately with the chocolate mixture, blending well after each addition (flour, chocolate, flour, chocolate, flour, chocolate, flour.) Pour into cupcake-paper-lined muffin tins, about 2/3 to 3/4 full. Bake for 20-25 minutes, depending on the size of your cupcakes, until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean. Let the cupcakes cool completely before frosting.
Beat the butter until fluffy. Beat in the extract. On low, beat in the powdered sugar and cream, alternating between the two until the frosting is smooth and the consistency is what you would like!
To me, nothing beats an old-fashioned red velvet cupcake with cream cheese frosting. Well, unless it’s a slice of cake of the same! Moist, deep in flavors, slightly sweet and topped with an incredible frosting!
For those dark chocolate lovers out there, this is definitely a dessert that you need to try. I’ve never tasted anything like this cake recipe; it’s like biting into a soft chocolate bar. It is rich and full of dark chocolate flavor. Makes about 18 cupcakes.
