This is my go to chocolate cupcake recipe. It’s quick and easy! When the kids were younger, I used this recipe frequently so the kids got a homemade treat but didn’t founder on them as it only makes 12! I’m sure I’m not the only Mom that has kids go crazy with sweets, especially chocolate! Hey, it’s hard for me to control myself around delicious sweet treats, so I can’t blame kids for lack of self control!

These cupcakes are moist and delicious, best part is it’s egg free! I almost always have eggs on hand, but my crew eats a dozen scrambled eggs at a time, yes seriously! So it’s super nice to have a recipe like this just in case I’m out of eggs.

This recipe can easily be made gluten free.
