Chocolate Buttermilk Cupcakes

Didn't have anything special to post today, just made these simple chocolate cupcakes for my little niece.  All children loves chocolate, don't they?

I have made these Buttermilk Chocolate Cake in my previous post before but this time, I change it to adapt to cupcakes instead.  The ingredients remains the same ....

  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  1. Preheat oven to 175 degrees C. In a medium bowl, combine the buttermilk and baking soda. Set aside in a warm place.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together 2 cups sugar, eggs, 3 tablespoons cocoa powder, oil and 2 teaspoons vanilla until blended. Stir in the boiling water, then gradually beat in the flour. Stir in the buttermilk mixture.
  3. Pour batter into prepared paper cupcakes. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool.

Thought of making Coffee Buttercream for the topping, but kind of lazy!  Hmm....excuses!  So I topped it with red colour chocolate rice!

       Halo, I'm Chef Mario, cupcakes anyone?
