I have cocoa and flour on hand. And I have butter sitting in my fridge. Plus I discovered how to bake cupcakes without having to buy a muffin pan. First thought to come to mind was bake myself a chocolate cupcake. This particular chocolate cupcake recipe is simply easy, soft and beautiful. Even if this is your first time baking, you are sure to come out victorious. Really. Just follow the exact measurements.
I also have recently learned a little trick how to have a beautiful dome-shaped top or that bulge on top instead of having a flat or soggy-topped cupcake. Read this chocolate cupcake recipe further to know how.
I have learned that in order to have that nice dome-shape topped cupcake or that bulging top is to adjust the temperature of the oven. Increase the temperature then about midway, reduce to its original baking temperature. In this case here, I preheated the oven at 410F and baked the cupcakes using this temperature for about 10 minutes then reverted to the original baking temp of 375F during the remaining baking time.
There are times though the resulting cupcakes are still flat-topped even using this trick because there are other factors to consider like over mixing for example or probably there's something wrong with the ingredients like expired baking powder. But don't lose heart. The most important thing is the cupcakes should be soft and delicious.
