A Gourmet Cupcake Recipe


  • vegetable cooking oil spray
  • 4 sticks unsalted butter, cut into cubes
  • 8 ounces unsweetened chocolate, cut into cubes
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 3/4 cups sugar
  • 8 large eggs
  • powdered sugar


Preheat oven to 350°F and line enough mini-cupcake tins for 72 cupcakes with paper liners .

Spray the paper liners with vegetable cooking oil spray. (this step is optional)

Melt butter and chocolate in a 4-quart heavy pot over moderately low heat, stirring until smooth. Whisk together flour, cocoa, and salt. Remove pan from heat and whisk in granulated sugar. Add eggs, 1 at a time, whisking after each addition until incorporated, and stir in flour mixture just until blended.

Spoon batter into muffin liners, filling cups to top, and bake in middle of oven 15 to 20 minutes, or until a tester comes out with crumbs adhering. Cool 5 minutes in tins and turn out onto racks. Repeat with remaining batter.

Dust with confectioners sugar if desired.

This recipe makes 72 mini cupcakes and is great for special occasions!
