Jonathan's birthday cupcakes

Attention chocolate lovers (and non-lovers)! I think I've found the perfect chocolate cupcake recipe. I made these cupcakes for Jon's (belated) birthday...and if I do say so myself, they were pretty darn good. Even my chocolate-sort-of-hating boyfriend liked these...so that's gotta mean something, right?

Anyway, this cupcake does come packed full of chocolate flavor and goodness, but the cake is surprisingly light and fluffy. I was kind of worried that the frosting might have been a tad too sweet, but it's the perfect balance to the unsweetened cocoa that the cake portion of the recipe calls for. The frosting is a simple butter cream, but I think next time I might want to try a chocolate/cream cheese frosting.

So...behold! I present, the best chocolate cupcake recipe! Oh, and you might want to have a tall glass of cold milk ready to go. Don't say I never warned you.
