Ingredients:


Cupcakes:

  • 1 and 2/3 cups (210g) all-purpose flour (measured correctly)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (115g) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup (200g) granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup (60g) yogurt*
  • 3/4 cup + 1 Tablespoon (195ml) milk, divided*
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup (21g) unsweetened cocoa powder

Milk Chocolate Frosting:

  • 1 and 3/4 cups (210g) confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/4 cup (21g) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup (115g) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 2 Tablespoons (30ml) heavy cream or half-and-half**
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    salt, to taste

Vanilla Frosting:

  • 1/2 cup (115g) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature 
  • 1 and 3/4 cups (210g) confectioners’ sugar 
  • 2 Tablespoons (30ml) heavy cream or half-and-half** 
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    salt, to taste 



Note:
Single layer cake: Simply layer the chocolate and vanilla batters into a 9×2 inch cake pan or 9 inch springform pan. Fill the pan 2/3 of the way full. There will be leftover batter for an additional cupcake or two. Bake the cake for 30-35 minutes.


*Use any kind of yogurt you like – Greek, regular, vanilla, plain, nonfat or low fat. You can use any milk you like too – buttermilk, skim, 1%, 2%, almond, soy, etc.


**For the frosting, heavy cream or half-and-half will give your frostings the creamiest texture. You can use milk instead, keeping in mind the frostings won’t be as creamy.
