Bake Along #83 Devil's Food Cupcakes With Chocolate Frosting

This is the third devil's food cake recipe I made, but the first time I made it into cupcakes
This is the cake that is difficult to resist, at least in my chocoholic family, regardless of the name
I don't know why and have not done any research either, why the name. I mean, is it because devil likes chocolate cake, or what? LOL
Anyway, name aside, we enjoyed every bite of this rich, moist and chocolaty indulgence :)

These wonderful cuppies are not overly sweet, even when eaten with the frosting. Love it :)

Recipe is from the book Bon Appetit by Barbara Fairchild
What you need:
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (I used Valrhona)
2 oz milk chocolate, chopped (I used a combination of Cadbury 70% dark chocolate and Hersheys semi sweet chocolate chips - since that's all I had in my pantry LOL)
1/2 cup boiling water
1/2 cup buttermilk (I used plain yoghurt)
1 cup cake flour
3/4 tsp baking soda (I used 1 tsp double acting baking powder)
1/2 tsp salt
2/3 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup canola oil (I used rice bran)
1/2 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
For the frosting:
4 oz semi sweet or bitter sweet chocolate, chopped
2 oz milk chocolate, chopped
(I used 6 oz Hersheys semi sweet chocolate chips)
2 tbsp whipping cream
1/2 cup sour cream (I used plain yoghurt)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup icing sugar
  1. Preheat oven to 180degC. Line muffin pan with liners (I got 14 cupcakes)
  2. Combine cocoa powder and both chocolates in a bowl. Pour in boiling water and whisk til smooth. Add in yoghurt and stir til well mixed
  3. Whisk flour, baking powder and salt in another bowl, set aside
  4. In another bowl, beat both sugars, eggs, oil and vanilla til light and fluffy, about 2-3mins over high speed
  5. Beat in flour mixture, alternating with chocolate mixture, ending with the flour
  6. Scoop in each muffin liner about 3/4 full and bake for 15-20mins til skewer comes out clean
  7. Cool in the pans on cooling rack for 10mins and then transfer cupcakes to cooling rack, cool completely
  8. To make the frosting, Stir chocolate and cream also butter over saucepan of simmering water til melted and smooth. Remove from heat and add in yoghurt, vanilla and icing sugar. Mix well
  9. Pipe or spread over the completely cooled cupcakes
