Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a muffin pan with paper or foil liners. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa and salt. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition, then stir in the vanilla. Add the flour mixture alternately with the milk; beat well. Fill the muffin cups 3/4 full.
  3. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean. Frost with your favorite frosting when cool.

I made this recipe and it was yummy. However, I suggest that you only fill the muffin cups 2/3 of the way, instead of 3/4 because they end up looking like muffins (way too high), rather than cupcakes. I will also probably lessen the milk a bit the next time, because it came out too soft and was disintegrating people were eating it.

These cupcakes are pretty good, but nothing exceptional. Also, the instructions are misleading; they say to cream 3 Tbsp. of butter with 1 1/2 cups of sugar. It's virtually impossible to cream such a small amount of butter with 8 times the amount of sugar! The butter will never get creamy, but will stay overly grainy and sugary from all that sugar. A much better and simpler way is to melt the butter and add it to the wet ingredients, and then add the sugar to the dry ingredients. The best part about these cupcakes is they are lowfat!

Very easy and tasty (with and without icing). I found that it will make 30 cupcakes (don't fill each cup as full as stated, closer to 1/2). They will be the perfect size for icing. If you aren't planning on icing them you could make 24 cupcakes. I made these with the help of a 3 yr old and a 1 yr old. They both love them! I did need to bake them a bit longer (about 10 min) but our oven usually needs a bit longer so others might not not need to.

WOW! These were awesome! They are very cake-like and soft, and are amazing without any icing. I filled the muffin cups about halfway and they rose right to the top of the cups and made 15(I halved the recipe).. there really wasn't a size problem for me. Thank you!

Ok, the recipes says it makes 16 cupcakes. I made 18 and had TONS of batter left over. Not only that, but even with the cups half full (large cups) they over flowed. And fell. And were that kind of too moist texture. Not well done at all.

These turned out so good! I had some buttermilk to use up so I subbed that for the regular milk. I recommend it if you've got some on hand. I frosted with a rich semisweet/bittersweet chocolate frosting.

i love this recipie baked it quite a lot, my kids love it but i add only 1/2 a cup of cocoa or it seems a little to dry instead of moist for the kids but otherwise this recipie rocks!!!!

pretty good. i added more cocoa and subbed applesauce for the butter, since i had none on hand. i frosted them with a chocolate/peppermint buttercream icing and they were gobbled up. will make again.
