Chocolate cupcakes are the ultimate party food. These are super moist and bursting with rich, chocolaty flavor — and they're so easy to make. It will be the ideal addition to your afternoon tea.



  • 1 ⅓ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ cups white sugar
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¾ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup milk


    • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a muffin pan with paper or foil liners.

    • Sift together flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

    • Cream together sugar and butter in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla. Add flour mixture in two batches, alternating with milk; beat well. Spoon batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling each 3/4 full.

    • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the centers comes out clean, 15 to 17 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool before serving or frosting.
