Ingredients

Chocolate Cupcakes:

  • 2 1/4 c. AP Flour
  • 1 2/3 c. Sugar
  • 3/4 c. Butter, softened
  • 2/3 c. Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 1 1/4 c. Water
  • 1 1/4 tsp. Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • 1/3 tsp. Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla
  • 2 Eggs

Buttercream Frosting:

  • 1/2.c. Butter
  • 1/2 c. Shortening
  • 4 c. Powdered sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. Milk
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla

Directions

Perfect Chocolate Ganache:

  • Approximately 2 cups chocolate chips
  • Approximately 1 1/2 cups whipping cream
 
Chocolate Cupcakes:
  1. Preheat oven to 350º.
  2. Using a stand mixer, whisk together all ingredients. Fill cupcake liners 2/3 full.
  3. Bake for 19 minutes. Allow to cool completely before frosting.

Buttercream Frosting:

  1. Whisk together butter and shortening in a stand mixer.
  2. Alternately add the 4 cups of powdered sugar with the liquids (1 cup sugar, 1 tbsp milk, 1 cup sugar, 1 tsp vanilla, etc…), whisking thoroughly in between and scraping down the sides of the bowl.

Perfect Chocolate Ganache:

The key to this ganache is to not measure anything. Just trust me on this, you can’t depend on the measurements! Pour desired amount of chocolate chips (recommended approx. 2 cups) into a microwave safe bowl. Pour the whipping cream into the bowl until it’s just level with the chocolate chips (it shouldn’t cover the chocolate chips completely). Microwave for 1 minute and whisk until smooth.
