Classic Chocolate Cupcakes

While blog hopping, I came across this young lady's website which I think an 'expert' in cupcakes...since she also has another website that takes order online...I saw this cupcake in Maya's blog, I was tempted and my saliva kept drooling..too bad but there was no recipe given...

After scrolling for a few entries...Yes!! Yes!! ..she posted the recipe!!..without 'pandang belakang' (looking back) ..I printed out the recipe and tried baking it..
WOOOW!!!heaven..its true what she just me...lllllllts in your mouth!!!...
This is the best cupcake recipe so far that I have tried!!!!..adding to the frosting aaahhh!!! no word to describe dear owner, thank you for sharing this marvelous recipe and mintak halal kan recipenya.. semuga murah rezeki lagi lah lepas ni!!! Amin.

170g butter-(3/4 cup)
2 cups sugar (-I used 11/4 cup)
3 eggs
2 cups plain flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
85g cocoa powder-(Ayu used Valrhona cocoa powder)
11/2 cups milk
2 tsp vanilla

Cream butter until softened. Add sugar and beat until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time. Measure the flour, baking soda, salt and cocoa powder into a medium sized bowl and whisk to combine. Add about a third of the dry ingredients to the butter/sugar and beat to combine. Add about half of the milk and beat to combine. Continue adding, alternating between dry and wet and finishing with the dry. Mix in vanilla. Scoop batter into cupcake cups 1/2 or 60% full. Bake at 170C for about 25-30 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean.

142g chocolate (5 oz)-(Ayu used Valrhona Dark Chocolate)
86g butter(3 oz)
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tsp vanilla
5-7 oz icing sugar (start with 5 oz and add accordingly) - (Ayu used 2 oz - 21/2 oz-60g -75g)

Melt butter and chocolate using a double boiler. Once smooth and melted, gently whisk in vanilla. Whisk in icing sugar, a little at a time. Add in sour cream and cream till its satiny smooth. Keep it aside for a while to thickens. Do give it a stir once in a while.
