This truly is THE BEST DARK CHOCOLATE CAKE with its moist layers of deep rich chocolate and creamy DARK CHOCOLATE BUTTERCREAM FROSTING that melts in your mouth! It’s AMAZING!!!

Remember last summer when we went on Vacation to George Town? We took that cupcake tour, and stopped in at that little bakery…“Sprinkles”…and my life was forever changed! Yep… by ONE little EPIC mouth-watering Dark Chocolate Cup Cake with real chocolate sprinkles! (Hey…it doesn’t take much for a complete life changing experience in my overwhelmingly exciting life!)
I spent the next few months…12 of them to be exact…trying to duplicate THAT cupcake!

  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup Hershey's Special Dark unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk

  • 5 1/2 cups of powder sugar

  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the sugar, flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Add the eggs, milk, oil and vanilla, mix for 3 minutes with an electric mixer. Add in the boiling water or hot decaf coffee. Combine for 1 minute on slow speed. The batter will be very wet. Pour evenly into the two prepared pans.
