Devils Food Cupcakes - Club Baked

As with most of my scheduled posts of late, I am running behind. I love all things chocolate and this cake is no exception. The recipe as written makes an 8" layer cake. Still recovering from all of the holiday sweets, I didn't want a layer cake around the house. I decided to cut the recipe in half and make cupcakes. I ended up with 12 cupcakes.

I double checked the recipe and am positive, I used the right measurements but my cupcakes didn't rise. Instead of the Angel Frosting the recipe called for, I added cocoa to some leftover cream cheese frosting that was in my fridge. It complimented the deep devils food flavor nicely. Despite their appearance, these cupcakes are delicious. They are light and fluffy with a deep chocolate flavor. I will be making this one again soon!


You can find the recipe at Just About Food Today. Thanks Natalie for a great choice of recipes!! Check out the links to the other Club Baked bakers cakes here!

  10. I know what you mean about recovering from the holiday sweets. Most of my layer cake is still sitting in the fridge. Your cupcakes look delicious! I love cream cheese frosting.

  11. Your cupcakes look delicious, I bet the cream cheese cocoa frosting was perfect with these. I wonder why yours didn't rise? No worries though, you can't tell by looking at them and as long as they tasted good that's what counts :)
