I went to a New Years party this weekend and I wanted to bring something easy and delicious, so I decided on chocolate cupcakes! You can never go wrong with bringing something chocolate to a party.

I began preheating my oven to 350°. Then I mixed together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cocoa powder in medium-sized mixing bowl, I set that aside for later. After that, I whisked together the egg, greek yogurt, milk, water, canola oil and vanilla in a large bowl. I then added the dry ingredients to the wet and mixed them together. I filled mini cupcake liners about ¾ full and then baked for 10 minutes. I made mini cupcakes just because I had a lot of mini cupcake liners, but you can, of course, make regular sized cupcakes, too! If you are making regular sized cupcakes, bake for 20 minutes.

 

CUPCAKE RECIPE:

1 cup flour

1 cup sugar

⅓ cup cocoa powder

¾ teaspoon baking powder

¾ teaspoon baking soda

¼ teaspoon salt

1 egg

½ cup plain Greek yogurt

½ cup warm water

¼ cup milk

¼ cup canola oil

¾ teaspoon vanilla extract

The frosting recipe is very simple. I started by taking the stick of unsalted butter out of the fridge so that it could get to room temperature. I then melted the ½ of chocolate baking chips. Once the chocolate was melted, I combined the butter, chocolate, powdered sugar and vanilla in my kitchen aid mixer and mixed on high until the frosting was nice and creamy. Lastly, I piped the frosting onto each cupcake once the cupcakes completely cooled!
