This is your basic but beautiful chocolate cupcake recipe that I use as the basis for a lot of my cupcake creations. It’s easy to make, easy to make gluten-free, and soft, pillowy, and chocolatey. I adore this recipe.



Preheat oven to 350F.

1 Step

Beat butter until softened. Add sugar and beat until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.

2 Step

Add eggs, one at a time, beating until well combined.

3 Step

Measure the flour, baking powder, salt, and cocoa powder into a small-sized bowl and whisk to combine.

4 Step

Measure out the milk and vanilla and stir to combine.

5 Step

Add about a third of the dry ingredients to the butter/sugar and beat to combine. Add about a half of the milk/vanilla and beat to combine. Continue adding, alternating between dry and wet and finishing with the dry.

6 Step

Scoop batter into cupcake cups about 1/2's full. Turn oven down to 350 degrees and bake cupcakes for about 22-25 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean.
