    Wonderful chocolate cupcake! Moist, light, fluffy and tender but not crumbly. Best chocolate cupcake in my memory. Made 30 cupcakes, 1/4 cup each. Baking time was 20 minutes. Topped with Hershey’s cocoa buttercream frosting, medium.

    the cupcakes were fluffy, buy i would have added some chocolate chips to the batter or more cocoa powder to make it more chocolatey

    These cupcakes are so light and fluffy. Ideal out the oil in the cupcakes for 1/2 cup of butter. The best chocolate cupcakes I've ever had. The batter is runny but it's supposed to be like that.
