2X Chocolate Cupcakes.....

This post will be short and very sweet! My cousin is visiting from Germany with her daughter and I have a limited amount of time to see them before they travel to Northern California. These cupcakes came out with no problems and I followed the recipe as stated. I used my own buttercream frosting because it's what DH loves; he took most of them to work and the comments were that the cupcakes were "intense"; not sure what that ment, maybe too chocolatie. I felt they were a bit crumbly (dry), but all in all a good flavor. Next time maybe some applesauce or sour cream to make them more moist. Or, just use my favorite devils food recipe.

I had one person comment that they were "wicked chocolately". Maybe that is Bostonian for "intense" ;)

I like the little pink plate...too cute!

Wow, I bet they were intense - they look amazing with the buttercream. Nice.

Lovely and very "classic!"

I'd love to hear about your favorite devil's food cake recipe -- I'm still searching for the "ultimate" chocolate cake recipe.

I used plain yogurt instead of buttermilk and I think that really helped. The buttercream looks great!
