 This made-from-scratch Milk Chocolate Cupcake Recipe will have you ditching store-bought cake mix forever. The cake is soft and fluffy, and the milk chocolate frosting melts in your mouth. Perfect for birthdays, special occasions, and everyday treats.

You’ll love these cupcakes just the way they are (with a cold glass of milk of course). But if you want to jazz them up a bit try filling them with homemade chocolate ganache or drizzling the tops with salted caramel sauce.
