Special Chocolate Cupcakes Recipe

This is a called the "Special Chocolate Cupcakes" recipe from my husband's side of the family. It's the cake we make every year for his birthday since he was little. I've made it for 20 years now. Wow, how time flies. So, you know it is a "special" cake. It includes marshmallow icing with isn't really sweet but it has its own set of directions. The recipe makes 24 cupcakes easily and is perfect for a family birthday party gathering. I hope you enjoy it.


This is broken up into two recipes, one for cake and one for icing. If you want to just make the cake and use your own icing, that works too.

Then add dry mixture. Mix thoroughly and stir in the Cold Coffee.

Pour into 24 cupcakes liners and bake for 25 minutes at 350 degrees.

Here's one of the aluminum trays after we iced the cupcakes.

Ingredients for Icing:

1 cup confection sugar

¼ cup flour

1 cup milk

1 cup half butter/half shortening (or all butter)

1 tsp vanilla


Instructions for Icing:

Combine flour and milk by adding milk slowly and whisking the flour into the milk until smooth.

Set over moderate heat and stir until thickened. Let cool completely. This is how it looks after it cools. Don't rush the process.

Combine with confectioner sugar with shortening and butter (or all butter) beat until light and fluffy.

Stir in well-cooled flour and milk mixture. Beat on high-speed till thoroughly mixed and fluffy.Add to the top of the cupcakes.

That's it. The cake is so moist you will not believe it. I hope you enjoy it.
