I know. Chocolate cupcake. The yummiest on earth! A classic treat that everybody loves and homemade tastes even better! I can’t wait to share my first dessert recipe with you. This recipe makes a perfect 12 cupcakes, just enough to share with family and friends. Easy homemade chocolate cupcakes topped of with creamy vanilla buttercream frosting and garnished with sprinkles.

Did I make you curious to try it out yourself?

Chocolate Cupcakes



60g butter, softened
160g caster sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 pinch salt
1 egg
1 bar of chocolate 100g
160g all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1,25dl whole milk

Vanilla Buttercream

160g butter, softened
300g powdered sugar
1 vanilla pod, scrape the seeds out
1 pinch salt
4 tablespoons whole milk

Chocolate Cupcakes

Combine butter, sugar, vanilla extract and salt in a bowl, mix it. Melt chocolate bar in a pot on the stove and add it to the bowl. Mix in the egg and slowly add the flour, baking powder and milk.

Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Fill cupcake liners 2/3 way full. Bake for 20 minutes. If a toothpick inserted comes out clean, remove the cupcakes from the oven and cool for 5 minutes before removing the wire racks. Cool completely before frosting, at least 1 hour.

Make frosting by creaming together butter and powdered sugar in a stand mixer. Beat in vanilla seeds and salt. Beat in two tablespoons milk and continue beating until a thick spreadable mixture forms. If frosting seems too thick add remaining tablespoon milk.

Spoon frosting into a piping bag and pipe onto cooled cupcakes. Add sprinklers and serve.
