Bake-a-thon 2014: Day 7

Bake of the Day: Chocolate Buttermilk Cupcakes

Did you know that today is ‘National Cupcake Day‘. I planned to post another dish today, but then I saw that today is National Cupcake day on my daughter’s school calender and I didn’t want to miss this opportunity to celebrate the delicious cupcakes.

I had buttermilk in the fridge and wanted to make something with it. A quick search on King Arthur Flour site landed me on this Peppermint Fudge Cupcakes recipe. We are not big mint fans, so I skipped it and so these are just regular chocolate cupcakes with some quick vanilla icing.

These chocolate cupcakes are very moist, very fudgey and chocolaty. Both my kids went gaga over them. My little one ate one right out of the oven and gave me a big thumbs up.

The original recipe makes 21 cupcakes. I halved the recipe and got 10 of them. I replaced the egg with egg replacer and it worked out great.

Recipe adapted from King Arthur Flour.
