    I made these chocolate cupcakes a while ago and this post has been in the draft ever since. Due to some personal reasons, I haven’t been able to update my blog for a while now. So today I thought of finally publishing this post and sharing the recipe.

    One of the things that I have learnt with baking cakes/cupcakes is that every oven is different and my baking time might very well be different from your baking time. My cupcakes might get done in 15 minutes, while yours in 20, it all depends on the oven and it’s temperature. One can get an oven thermometer to measure the exact temperature of their ovens. So yeah be careful with the baking time. You never want to over-bake your cakes or cupcakes. They should be baked till they are just about done.

    I frosted these cupcakes with a simple Chocolate Buttercream frosting. Will share the recipe of the frosting soon.

        1. I honestly have to make the recipe again and then update the recipe card which will calculate the nutritional value, it’s such an old recipe.
