Barefoot Contessa(Ina Garten) is one of my favorite cooks,she made these cupcakes on the show this morning and they look so delicious,I'm going to make them this afternoon. Ina made a peanut butter frosting for them,but I'm going to frost them with chocolate cream cheese frosting instead.

How to Make Barefoot Contessa's Chocolate Cupcakes

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line cupcake pans with paper liners.
    In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream the butter and 2 sugars on high speed until light and fluffy, approximately 5 minutes. Lower the speed to medium, add the eggs 1 at a time, then add the vanilla and mix well. In a separate bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, sour cream, and coffee. In another bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt. On low speed, add the buttermilk mixture and the flour mixture alternately in thirds to the mixer bowl, beginning with the buttermilk mixture and ending with the flour mixture. Mix only until blended. Fold the batter with a rubber spatula to be sure it's completely blended.
    Divide the batter among the cupcake pans (1 rounded standard ice cream scoop per cup is the right amount). Bake in the middle of the oven for 20 to 25 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes, remove from the pans, and allow to cool completely before frosting.
