My husband loves chocolate cake. So for his birthday, I always make chocolate cake but I get the cake mixture from stores. I wanted to make chocolate cupcakes from scratch and referred food network for a best recipe. Luckily I got a cupcake recipe from my favorite Chef Ina Garten.

This chocolate cupcake recipe is so perfect hence the cupcakes came out so rich and tender. Now I will find every excuse to make this dessert often. Enjoy making this simple and delicious cupcake at your home and share your feedback in the comment section.

Ingredients (makes 12 cupcakes)

all-purpose flour (maida) - 1 cup  [ 1 cup size = 235 ml]
unsweetened cocoa powder -  4 tablespoon (I used Hershey's Natural Unsweetened Cocoa )
sugar - 1 cup
salt - 1/2 tsp
vegetable oil - 1/4 cup
instant coffee powder - 1 tsp
egg - 1
buttermilk - 1/2 cup
vanilla extract -  1/2 tsp
baking powder - 1/2 tsp
baking soda - 1 tsp
water - 1/2 cup


  • heat 1/2 cup of water in a vessel and bring it to boil
  • once the water gets boiled, add 1 teaspoon of instant coffee powder. Boil it for few mins and keep it aside. 
  • sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cocoa and sugar in a bowl
  • in another bowl, combine buttermilk, oil, egg and vanilla extract.
  • Slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry mixture and whisk it well
  • add the coffee and stir well
  • preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 minutes
  • Place the cupcake liners in the baking muffin pan
  • fill the liners with batter. Fill them about 2/3rd full. You can go higher if you want the cupcakes to have more of a dome that comes over top of the liner
  • Bake them for about 18 - 20 minutes 
  • if you insert a toothpick inside the cupcake, it has to come clean. That means the cupcake is completely done
  • cool in the pans for 30 mins
  • Once it is completely cooled, you can either fill with your favorite frosting or you can just have it. Tastes moist and delicious. 
  • Enjoy making this chocolate cupcake recipe at your home and share your feedback in the comment section below. Happy Baking !!!
