For the Cake: (From the recipe book Chocolate Bar)

  • 2 2/3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 ½ cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • ½ cup unsweetened nonalkalized cocoa powder (I use hershey’s, and I put in closer to ¾ cup because it’s really weak.)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda (NOTE THE DIFFERENCE.)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 3 large eggs, room temp
  • 2/3 cup sour cream, room temp
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ sticks unsalted butter
  • ½ cup corn oil
  • 1 ¼ cups cold (or ice) water

Preheat to 350 – bake cupcakes for 19-22 minutes (Mini cupcakes go in for 15 minutes).

  1. Mix dry ingredients (flours sugars, baking soda, powder, cocoa and salt) in a bowl, set aside.
  2. Mix sour cream, eggs and vanilla until well blended.
  3. Melt the butter, then mix in the water and corn oil. Put this mixture into the sour cream mixture, and mix together.
  4. Slowly add the dry ingredients. Pour into cupcake cups and super enjoy.

For the Frosting (I made this up – I suggest not tinting this blue because it looks like toothpaste – does not TASTE like toothpaste, but its a good reminder):

  • 4 cups of confectioners sugar
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 2-3 tbsp milk
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp mint extract

Mix with a hand or stand mixer – make sure that the butter is softened, otherwise it doesn’t quite gel right.

Enjoy guys! (: Thanks for following, and please leave me messages, I love chatting.
