I have seen these Devil's Food Cupcakes around but never get to bake them. Yes! they're devilishly good and rich!  This is a classic American chocolate cake, and I guess it get it's name because it is very dark and decadent?

I have been very busy lately, and would have missed this week Bake Along if not for reading Ann's post. I like she adapted the recipe and used yoghurt in the cake and frosting. These cuppies are definitely healthier than most other chocolate cupcakes.

makes 8-10 cupcakes


25g unsweetened cocoa powder
30g semi sweet chocolate(4 oz)
1/4 cup boiling water
1/4 cup natural yoghurt
1/2 cup plain flour(cake flour)
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup canola oil (sunflower)
1/4 cup castor sugar
1 large egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract


  • Preheat oven to 170C and line muffin cup with paper liners.
  • Combine cocoa powder and chopped chocolate together and pour boiling water over it and whisk till smooth. Whisk in the yoghurt.
  • In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking soda, salt together. Set aside.
  • Using electric mixer, beat brown sugar, oil,sugar, egg and vanilla until light and creamy. Beat in the flour mixture, alternating with chocolate mixture in additions.
  • Scoop batter evenly among paper liners. Bake for about 18 minutes (20 minutes) or until tester inserted comes out clean.
  • Let cupcakes cool in the pan and cool completely before frosting it.


90g semi sweet chocolate (3 oz)
1 tbsp whipping cream
15g butter
1/4 cup natural yoghurt
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/8 cup icing sugar (15g)

  • Stir chocolate and butter in a medium bowl over simmering water until melted and smooth. Remove from water and whisk in yoghurt and vanilla, then icing sugar.
  • Let stand until thick to spread or put in the fridge to fasten the process. Fill a pipingbag with Wilton nozzle star tip 1M and the chocolate cream. Pipe a circular swirl design on the cuppies.

  1. They look decadent, Lian, and I love the way you have them presented! I am doing well, just trying to cope with the dangerous heat and humidity here in Montreal. Drinking lots of water and my home brewed iced tea (lemon and ginger)...and trying to stay indoors whenever possible, and thankfully there is central air conditioning. :)
