Chocolate-Chocolate Chip Cupcakes!

Now that I've made one cupcake recipe, I'm feeling the urge to make more! Something is so exciting about the miniature and delicious little cakes they are! These may not officially qualify as cupcakes since they don't have frosting, but they are such a moist, chocolaty cake that I don't really think you'll mind. ;-)

Chocolate Chip Cupcakes

(Originally from My Baking Addiction)

Yields 12 Cupcakes

3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup sugar
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
3/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 12-cup standard muffin tin with paper liners.
2. Into a medium bowl, sift together cocoa, flour, baking powder, and salt; set aside. In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each, then beat in vanilla. With mixer on low speed, add flour mixture in two batches, alternating with sour cream and beginning and ending with flour. Gently fold in chocolate chips.
3. Pour batter into cups, filling each 3/4 full. Bake until a toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes.
4. Cool in pan 5 minutes; transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Happy Baking!
