Chocolate Easter Cupcakes

It’s Friday and I had a half day at work and now my Easter weekend has started, feel very lucky as I have about 1,5 week off from work now and can be home with my kids who have an Easter break next week from school 🙂

Earlier this week I felt for a little Easter baking, so I went ahead and made some nice chocolate Easter cupcakes with bright yellow cream cheese frosting.

Author: Jeanette
  • 100 grams melt butter
  • 0.4 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 0.2 cup cacao
  • 3 teaspoons powder sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1.2 cups flour
  • 0.4 cup sugar
Cream cheese frosting
  • 1.6 cups icing sugar
  • 50 grams butter
  • 125 grams cream cheese
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla flavor
  • 2-3 teaspoons yellow food color
  1. Turn on the oven to 225 Celcius (437 F)

  2. Melt the butter and pour in the milk.

  3. Whisk eggs and sugar really white and fluffy. (I used an electric mixer)

  4. Add baking soda, powder sugar, and cacao and whisk it together. 

  5. Pour in the butter and milk mixture and add the flour. Whisk it all together to a nice cupcake batter.

  6. Place cupcake cups on an oven plate or use a cupcake form. And fill the cups about 2/3.

  7. Let the cupcakes bake in the middle of the oven for 10 minutes.

  8. Then let them cool down on the counter.

  9. While the cupcakes are cooling down, you can start making the frosting.

  10. Whisk or stir all the frosting ingredients together with a hand whisk or with a tablespoon until you have a nice yellow creamy frosting. 

Recipe Notes

Start with like 2 tablespoons of color and add more if you want to make the frosting a bright yellow color!

Decorate the cupcakes with something Easter related, like colorful sprinkles, chocolate eggs or jelly candy eggs.

When my daughter saw these chocolate Easter cupcakes on the counter after she came home from school that day, she really brightening up and wanted to have one immediately. She thought they were so pretty 🙂

Really love using cream cheese frosting, cause it balances the sweet icing sugar very well and it makes the frosting to not being too sweet.
