Moist Chocolate Cupcakes with Chocolate Buttercream

Here’s another cupcake recipe for you and it also comes from Southern Living. This one is different from the basic white cupcake. This recipe calls for a whole 16 oz. container of sour cream. When you mix this batter up make sure you mix it with a good mixer. That entire container of sour cream makes this batter very thick and creamy. The consistency resembles a thick mousse. The other interesting thing about this cupcake recipe is that it uses a German chocolate cake. Finally, you top these moist morsels with a chocolate buttercream. This buttercream doesn’t get it’s chocolate flavor from cocoa powder, it uses melted dark chocolate morsels. Now I didn’t have any dark chocolate morsels in my house so I used semi-sweet chocolate chips in it’s place. One tip for the frosting, when you add the chocolate, mix it in a spoonful at a time. This way you won’t melt the butter and cream cheese. Again, I am just providing the links to Southern Living for the recipes which is found on
