An easy recipe for moist homemade chocolate cupcakes topped off with creamy vanilla buttercream frosting. A perfect dessert for any occasion!
Happy July! How did that happen?! It’s so hard to believe that we’re already three weeks into summer break! It’s flying by crazy fast. I hope you had a fun 4th of July! Our day and weekend was full of family time, birthday festivities and of course sparkler fun for the 4th. Now the kids are already requesting to play with more sparklers. Friendly tip, if you’ve never bought the colored sparklers, skip them. They’re not nearly as fun as the regular non-colored variety and they smoke like crazy, or at least the ones we had. Definitely not a fan. In the future we’ll stick to the regular sparklers.
Yesterday I learned that Amazon Prime members get to download one free book a month, from a specific selection. What?! That’s pretty awesome. I know you can borrow from the library for free too, but I don’t like waiting for books and even with digital books, there’s a wait. I’m seriously already hooked on the book I picked: Everything We Keep. I won’t give you any spoilers, but I’d say it’s basically a Nicholas Sparks type book with a mysterious twist. So far so good and already I’m half way through. A quick but fun read.
These cupcakes were part of our birthday celebrations over the weekend. I asked my oldest what kind of cake or cupcake she wanted… “Chocolate with vanilla frosting.” Done and done.
These are SO ridiculously good. Even on the third day these were still perfectly moist. A very good thing!
This recipe makes a perfect 12 cupcakes. Just enough to share with friends and family!
