One Bowl Fluffy Chocolate Cupcake

Oh my goodness I am going crazy over this cupcake.  These are so fluffy and moist.  Even after 2 days the flavor was intense and tasty.  I topped it up with tangy cream cheese frosting.  Adding the greek yogurt gives the cake the moist and fat that it needs to make it super fluffy.

This is going to be my next favorite cupcake as it only uses one bowl...clean up is a brisk.


1½ cups granulated sugar
1 cup all purpose flour
½ cup cake flour
1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1½ teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) cold unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
4 eggs
1 cup greek yogurt
2 teaspoons vanilla extract


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Place the first 7 (dry) ingredients in a large mixing bowl and stir to combine.
Mix in the butter on low speed, until the mixture resembles moist crumbs.
Stir in the eggs, greek yogurt and vanilla, scraping the bottom and sides of the bowl to be sure all the ingredients are well-combined.
Fill lined cupcake wells just over half full (approx. ¼ cup of batter).
Bake for 15 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted in the center of a cupcake comes out clean or with moist crumbs.
Cool completely before frosting.
