What You’ll Need To Make This Recipe

For the Chocolate Cupcakes

  • Flour — I use a simple all-purpose flour.
  • Sugar
  • Cocoa powder — Any kind of unsweetened cocoa powder will work.
  • Baking soda — baking soda helps make the cupcakes light and fluffy!
  • Salt — salt brings out the chocolate flavor. Not to worry, it doesn’t make your cupcakes salty.
  • Egg
  • Sour cream — use full fat sour cream for the best results. You can replace with full fat plain yogurt.
  • Oil
  • Vanilla extract
  • Hot water
