Chocolate Cupcakes

Chocolate cupcakes

Salam and morning everybody. Today is the first day of 5 days Eid holidays for the kid…. as usual, they are always hungry…so this morning after sending my other half to work, I decided to bake this cupcakes that I just saw during the weekend on Food network. The cupcakes are so yummy and soft….and just to get them involved, I let them decorate the cupcakes. I only made 1/2 of the ingredient and yield about 24 cupcakes. Lets see the ingredient…



  • 8 ounces sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 1/4 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup strong brewed coffee
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 large eggs

Frosting 🙂

  • 200 g cooking chocolate
  • 250 g thick cream


For the cupcake:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 C). Line cupcake pans with cupcake liners.

In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients. Beat at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth. Pour into cupcake liners about 2/3 full. Bake for 16 to 18 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool in pans for 10 minutes. Remove from pans, and let cool completely on wire racks.

For the frosting:

Melt the cooking chocolates using double boiler. Once melted add the thick cream and mix till everything smooth. Cool and ready to use.

  1. Excuse me for this question – but why not use ready made cake mix? Is this version healthier or tastier? Just curious…

    Also – where did you find the cup cake candy in Kuwait? 🙂

    • This recipe is easy enough to make and taste good too…so why buy if you can make it.
      As for sugar decoration, you can find them in new Lulu Hypermarket in Subhan.
