A chocolate and vanilla cupcake with a surprise on the inside—zebra-style stripes!
Preheat oven to 350 F. Line two 12-count muffin pans with paper liners. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt.
In a large bowl, beat eggs with sugar, vegetable oil, buttermilk and vanilla. Then pour in the flour mixture and stir until just combined.
Remove two cups of the batter and place it in a separate bowl. Stir melted chocolate into the 2 cups of batter, leaving the remaining batter plain.
To make the zebra effect, spoon a bit of chocolate batter into a muffin cup, then add some vanilla over top (at this point, your batter should look like a “bulls eye”). Repeat layers until cupcake liner is 3/4 full.
Bake for 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into a cupcake comes out clean. Remove them from the oven and allow them to cool.
Once cupcakes are cool, frost with your favourite frosting recipe.

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.
