Chocolate Cupcakes

There are two secrets to these cupcakes. They get their rich, extra-chocolaty flavor from a combination of unsweetened cocoa powder and bittersweet chocolate, and their soft, moist texture from a simple hand-mixing method.

So disappointing
October 26, 2014
I made these cupcakes for a party but they were so dry that I ended up throwing the rest of them away. Fortunately I also made the WS vanilla cupcakes that I've made several times. They're always super moist and delicious. I'm still hunting for an equally as good chocolate cupcake recipe.

Dry even with extra yolks
February 12, 2013
I have never had a Williams Sonoma recipe turn out less than wonderful. That's what prompted me to write this review. I have made dozens of Williams Sonoma recipes and this by far is the worst one! I read the reviews, added extra yolks to prevent the dryness other reviewers talked about and baked the cupcakes for the minimum suggested time in an oven with an additional thermometer so I could know the temperature was accurate. They still turned out dry!! I didn't even bring them to the party I made them for because I was embarrassed to admit I made them. The frosting however was delicious, that's why there are two stars here.
