How to Make German Chocolate Cupcakes

Step-by-Step

  1. Chocolate Cake:
    1 box Devil’s Food Cake Mix
    3 eggs
    ½ cup oil
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    ¾ cup buttermilk
    1 cup sour cream


    German Chocolate Frosting:
    1 cup evaporated milk
    1 cup sugar
    3 egg yolk, lightly beaten
    1/2 cup butter
    1 ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
    1 ½ cup chopped pecans
    1 ½ cup flaked coconut


    Chocolate Buttercream:
    4 ounces cream cheese
    ½ cup butter
    2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
    3 cups powdered sugar
    2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    1 tablespoon milk or cream (if needed)
  2. Directions:
    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line two muffin tins with 20-24 cupcake liners.
    2. In a large bowl, gently combine oil, eggs and vanilla extract.
    3. Sift (for easy mixing) in about 1/3 of the cake mix and stir until combined.
    4. Add Buttermilk and stir until combined.
    5. Add another third of the cake mix (again, sifting for easy stirring).
    6. Add sour cream, then final third of cake mix.
    7. Fill cupcake liners ¾ full and bake for 18-22 minutes or until an inserted knife comes out clean.
    8. German Chocolate Frosting: On medium heat in a sauce pan, constantly stir evaporated milk, sugar, egg yolks and butter until thickened. (Basically, until it boils and it will take approximately 15 minutes.) Stir in vanilla extract, pecans and coconut. Let cool.
    9. Chocolate Buttercream: Beat cream cheese and butter for 4 minutes. Add cocoa, powdered sugar and vanilla extract. Let beat for 3 minutes. If it is too thick, add milk. If it is too thin, add powdered sugar. Or if it is not dark enough, add more cocoa.
    10. Pipe Chocolate Buttercream around the edge of the cupcakes to create a barrier, and scoop a small amount of cooled German Chocolate Frosting into the center.
