Chocolate Cupcakes with Vanilla Buttercream Frosting

Homemade Chocolate Cupcakes with Vanilla Buttercream Frosting!! What could be better?!?!? Maybe a few sprinkles on top. ðŸ˜‰

I love cupcakes and this recipe for Chocolate Cupcakes from Scratch by Tastes of Lizzy T is just so yummy! She adds coffee to the batter! Don’t worry if you’re not a coffee drinker – they don’t taste like coffee…it just enhances the flavor of the chocolate. There is a recipe included for Chocolate Sour Cream Frosting with the cupcake recipe which I haven’t tried – but I’m sure it is so very good! Next time… 🙂

This time I chose to use the recipe for Vanilla Buttercream Frosting from Magnolia Bakery. You can find a link to the recipe in my post for Magnolia Bakery’s Vanilla Birthday Cake Cupcakes here – and you will want to try these cupcakes, too – so good!!! 

Anyway…back to the chocolate cupcakes…

Here they are ready to pop in the oven. If you don’t have one of these 24-cup cupcake pans, you need to get one! They make baking so much faster and easier. (I got mine at Hobby Lobby with a 40% off coupon making it a great deal.)


Fresh-baked, hot, and my kitchen smells so good…


Here they are with the amazing Vanilla Buttercream Frosting and a few sprinkles…


And a close up…so moist, so chocolatey, so yummy! It was hard to put it down long enough to snap a picture!


These cupcakes are so tasty. My husband said they just might be the best cupcakes he’s ever had…I know your family would enjoy them as a special treat. ðŸ™‚

Thanks for stopping by,
