Must Try Chocolate Cupcakes
I first saw this beautiful chocolate cupcakes at Quinn’s Baking Diary (Thank you Quinn). Baked this easy recipe two days ago and it was all gone on the next day! I called this “Must Try Chocolate Cupcakes” because the cupcakes texture were so perfect, really light and not too sweet.

Recipe from The Waitakere Reneck's Kitchen
Those cupcakes are cute! I would eat a dozen …..they look delicious!
Dolly & Joyce: If you've got sweet tooth better increase a little more sugar and add some frosting or chocolate cream on it specially for the kids.
SIS: Yes, I also used plain flour.
Hi Lia Chen, Welcome back 😉 I going to bake more specially for you.
Chapot: Thank you! I'm coming over now 😉
Muffinlover: Thanks for dropping by 😉 If you think 3tsp of baking powder are too much then reduce to 2tsp.
I just follow according to the recipe from Reneck's Kitchen.
