Hello everyone, it’s me Jemma, and I have got the easiest Tastiest moist-iest chocolate cupcake recipe you’ll ever ever gonna find Ever I’ve got some plain flour here I’ve got 350 grams. I’m just going to sieve it all together In a big bowl And then I put 370 grams of caster sugar 60 grams of cocoa powder And then a teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda and a half teaspoon of salt And then I’m just gonna shuffle that around with my sieve so that it’s all Mixed together And 150 grams of dark chocolate chips, and then I just want to mix up a little bit So I’m going to use a whisk for that Just make sure it’s all kind of going the same color So, that’s all our dry mix together Now, we’ll just put that to one side and we can mix our wet stuff together So, grab another bowl And I have a cup of coffee Now, if you might have a cafeteria of coffee knocking about, if you don’t Then just and put a tablespoon of instant coffee into a cup of hot water And then wait for it to cool down before you start mixing, otherwise, that’s gonna cook the eggs So, here we go Coffee And then I have 225 milliliters of vegetable oil and that goes in with the coffee And then I’ve got a cup of buttermilk You can just get a buttermilk at a supermarket in the kind of creamy Creamy aisle Just whack that in Then we also need some eggs So, just three large eggs Just whack it straight in Right and then using your whisk just Mix it all together just stab those yolks and just mix it all — it will look a bit gross, but that’s okay It’s going to look amazing when it bakes So, just make sure it’s all mixed three together with your whisk And that’s it easy-peasy now, We’re gonna add the dry to the wet, shuffle it in And get stirring it’s really simple Okay, so once it’s all mixed together and nice and sloppy and lovely and chocolatey You’re gonna need to transfer it into a jug Because it gets really messy trying to pour this into the cupcake cases So, grab a nice big jug and with a nice pointy felt and just pour as much as you can It’s like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, it’s like the Chocolate River Chocolate River So, I’ve got two cupcake tins lying with cupcake cases and this mixture makes them 24 cupcakes So, there’s plenty to show and just be really careful as you go don’t like Gush it all in because it’s just gonna go everywhere And I’m gonna fill these up to about 2/3 to 3/4 of the way up I’m using my spoon catching the drip so go slow This is gonna take a little while, so let’s speed it up Now it’s time to bake them And I’ve preheated my oven to 160 degrees Celsius, and I’m gonna bake them for 24 minutes They’re ready, so we’re gonna get them out of the oven and we’re gonna leave them to cool They’re out the oven they’ve had about 20 minutes to cool down And they’re ready to eat, and I’m not gonna waste any time I’m gonna Get one in my face, so Look at that I’m gonna get a bit of squishy bit right in the middle Hmm oh, that’s so – oh so tasty, really chocolatey, really moist, really squishy and delicious and so easy Like the easiest thing in the world The only thing that’s gonna make this better is if you slap a bunch of chocolate buttercream on it And if you want to learn how to make chocolate buttercream then click the link now And while you’re doing that I’ll just go sneak a little bit more in And if you liked this video, and you want to see more videos by me Then don’t forget to subscribe to my channel It’s free and it’s brilliant Obviously So, thanks for watching Bye If you want to subscribe to my channel then click subscribe now

  1. Can I leave out the chocolate items and turn them vanilla please? I’ve made the chocolate ones and they were delicious. Has anyone tried to leave out the chocolate items?

  2. I’m not sure if I have to use the convect or bake option on my oven. The convection distributes more air and sometimes it results on a crooked little mountain on my cupcake

  3. Hi @cupcakejemma!

    Was wondering how much oil there is in this recipe, please as the write up says 225ml but you say 425 ml in the video….
    Am planning to make these tonight as treats for my colleagues….
    Let me know please,
    Thank you,
    Shuchita.

  4. This recipe was a hit and the cakes were delicious but maybe you could've put in the video the right amount of vegetable oil because not everyone reads the description box

  5. When I made this my friends and family said that it was the best cupcake they ever had so thank youuu!!!

  6. Thank you so much for the yummy chocolate cupcakes! Me and my friend love them! I like it as it doesn't require any machine! Lovely!!!

  7. "mmmmmm" they came out so well and first time
    so moist & yummy thanks to you Jemma
    you make baking fun and so easy to follow

  8. This is amazing! It is like 3x better than her vanilla cupcake recipe in my families opinion (or easier to follow?). Just curious if anyone has tried adapting this to other flavors, like orange or vanilla? They are really amazing!

  9. Hi ive trd this recipe for the 5th time ck truns out tasty but while i mix in the flour it lumps and i add in small amts oe flour n alsn tried adding in al the flour at once even thoughIi mix it well and for quite some time the tiny lumps remain
    And show up as white tiny clumps after bking so wht am i doing wrng
    When u do it seems so breezy
    And yes i do sift the four bk a lot and its only this cake tht has this clumping iss ue does nt affect the taste bt dnt like the white bits plz help thx so much also is a glas of wtr n buttermilk 225ml each thx in advance:)

  10. Can this recipe be used to make a chocolate cake instead? And if so, could it be enough for a 1kg cake?

  11. I've made these cupcakes today but I didn't really like them. They taste like that chocolate Nesquick muesli thing. Maybe I should've used instant coffee instead of black coffee. And they had a weird spongey texture.

  12. I made these cupcakes using King Arthur measure for measure gluten free flour. They turned out great!

  13. In India we make butter milk by adding water to the yogurt. Please tell me is the right recipe? Cuz last time I added it in my cake it tasted weird.

  14. Just minor in the recipe it says 350ml of plain four – it should say 350g (Jenna says so in the video). I just made it, and the cupcake are as fantastic as all say! The 24 minute baking time is spot-on – my oven is fairly true. Unless I happen to have buttermilk in the house (which I will have if I am doing a lot of baking over the weekend), the milk and vinegar works perfectly for all my recipes. Trick is to put the vinegar in and let it sit for a few minutes, then lightly stir and let it sit again. I also find it works better if put the milk-vinegar mix in a warmer location like under a counter light. Lastly, I did half the recipe and got 13 generous cupcakes. I used two eggs and then did scant on the buttermilk, coffee, and oil to keep all from getting too moist. My concern on it tasting to coffee-ish was for naught. The coffee flavor mellows to a deep chocolate flavor (ooops — just gave myself away as an American).

  15. Jemma, why do you use coffee on your cupcake? Does it taste? Bc i hate coffee on sweats, i like to drink it, but the taste mixed with something else i hate :/

  16. Is this lactose free x I know lactose intolerant can have buttermilk and this has no butter which is good x

  17. This recipe really is perfect.  I wasn't sure rather to use dutch or natural cocoa but I did a little research and went with the dutch.  Man oh man!  Good even without frosting.

  18. Hi I tried this recipe with your chocolate buttercream recipe. It worked perfectly. very tasty. Thank you so much Jemma. Keep up the good work. Good luck

  19. NO NO NO NO NO ! Every recipe I have tried has failed terribly. I do not believe I do anything differently and I weigh on electronic scales. I used an oven thermometer. 160 24 mins and no where near cooked. Maybe that is because the oven you use is a commercial oven. Mine are now kind of cooked after 34 mins and the bottoms are dripping with vegetable oil. The bin thanks you my wallet and precious time do not.

  20. If you half the recipe will they still turn out ok? they look so yummy but I couldn't eat 24 and I don't have enough people to share them with lol

  21. I've made these sooooooo many times now with different fillings and everyone loves them, so easy to make and no need for the big mixer, always a bonus 🙂

  22. Before watching this video i have watched ur "whats wrong with my cupcakes" in that u mentioned cupcakes with peaky points in the centre r nt perfect..then why do i see peaky pointed centers in these chocolates cupcakes..🤔 iam really confused!! 🤕

  23. Please can someone let me know how many ml in one cup please (how much buttermilk in grams i will need please ) thank you

  24. Hi Jemma… I’ve made these a few time now… and my husband loves them…. I was just wondering how well do they freeze?! Hope you find time to reply… love watching your video.. and trYing your recipes….big big hugs 😀😊❤️

  25. Made these for my son to take to school yesterday, have had SO many people tell me they were the best cupcakes they’ve ever had!! My new go to! Thanks 🙂

  26. Can you taste the coffee? Baking for my kids birthday and they will not eat them if they can taste coffee! Help a girl out! Thanks 🙂

  27. Tried this recipe and it came out perfect. I've tried 4 of her recipes and they've all been fool proof. She'll be the future go-to YouTube cake recipe of choice!

  28. Can you give the correct conversions for measurements, like grams to cups etc…. will be much easier… however this was a perfect cupcake recipe! Thankyou

  29. Hi Jemma,you didn't answer a question b4. Why does your recipe say 225 mil oil when on the video you mention 425 ml. Which is the exact measure?

  30. Hi Jenna, love your recipes. Is this one baked with fan or regular oven temperature? Also, I am making these for a children’s party, what can I substitute the coffee with? Don’t want to have a bunch of hyper children 😉

  31. Looking at the video a few times now; the cup of coffee mixture looks like less than half of the veg oil, sooooo if 1 cup is equal to 250ml x 2 = 500ml.. so yes, I am thinking our Jemma has 445ml of veg oil in that video…. any comments?

  32. I love the flavour the chocolate chips give the sponge but I was hoping they would completely melt into the sponge to flavour the whole sponge and not just the parts with the chips. Has anyone tried adding melted chocolate instead of chocolate chips into the mixture? Did the cakes turn out okay?

  33. I used this recipe with some modifications and it came out perfect. Thanks a lot for the recipe 🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰

  34. Best chocolate cupcakes always made with veg oil! Love the addition of coffee which makes chocolate taste even better! You are the BEST❣️❣️❣️

  35. What if we want to make only 6 cupcakes how much do we need to put ingredients? ☹ because I really love the recipe but thats just too much…

  36. I'm curious as to why there is no baking powder in this recipe. I just made it and I found it to be dense/rubbery almost. I weighed everything out accordingly but maybe my measuring cups are slightly larger so the liquid portions were off.

  37. Quem fez a legenda desse video ? É uma colher de chá de bicarbonato e 1/2 de chá de sal. Por favor gente !!! Fail.

  38. For as long as i can remember my mum always put coffee in her chocolate cakes too. I do the same.. sooooo good!

  39. Can I ask what brand of cocoa powder do you use. I enjoy the color and it looks really good. Would love to try things.

  40. When i tried exactly as your recipe the surface looked kind of rough but if i put in it a little of baking powder it turned out quite like yours.What should i do?

  41. Made these today for my nephew’s birthday party. Everyone loved them! Topped them with whipped ganache. Thanks so much!
