I really love chocolate and the great thing about this recipe is, you only need one bowl to mix all the ingredients!  How awesome is that?!  My friend Amber from SweetAmbs shared this recipe with me which she said was inspired by Martha Stewart.  Hope you guys enjoy this yummy chocolate cupcake!

    Hi! You left the baking soda in this recipe. There was a baking soda included in your video. 🙂

    Also, which is preferable milk for this recipe, whole milk or buttermilk? Thanks 🙂

    • regular milk is good, however if you want a really moist and fluffy cupcake buttermilk makes it even better.

  3. One question! Can I replace extra virgin olive oil with vegetable oil? Would that make any difference? 🙂

    • Hi Cherie, extra virgin olive oil has such a strong taste. I would recommend using coconut oil, it’s healthier yet mild in taste. 🙂
