I made these decadent little wonders for a baby shower I hosted last week--and they were a complete success! They are the perfect mix of sweet, with just the right amount of tang from the buttermilk.

  • add   3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • add   3/4 cup sugar
  • add   1 teaspoon baking powder
  • add   1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • add   1/4 teaspoon salt
  • add   6 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • add   3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • add   6 tablespoons buttermilk
  • add   1 large egg, plus 1 large egg white
  • add   Vanilla Cream-Cheese Frosting


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line three 12-cup mini muffin trays with paper liners. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
  2. With an electric mixer, combine cocoa and 3 tablespoons hot water until a thick paste forms. Add butter, buttermilk, egg, and egg white; beat until combined. Whisk in flour mixture until smooth.
  3. Transfer batter to prepared tins. Each cup should be about 2/3 full. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean, 12 to 15 minutes. Transfer cupcakes to a wire rack to cool completely.
  4. Use an offset spatula or butter knife to spread icing over tops. Decorate as desired.
