Chocolate Raspberry Cupcakes are made with a rich homemade chocolate cupcake and homemade chocolate raspberry buttercream frosting.
Chocolate Raspberry Cupcakes
Today I decided to turn my classic chocolate cupcake recipe into one of my favorite combinations for a cupcake. If you have read my mocha cupcake recipe than you would have known that for my wedding I went all chocolate cake as the base for my cake flavors, but changed them up a bit.
I had chosen a cake with one layer being a mocha cake and another layer being this chocolate raspberry combination. Both of them were such a hit I wanted to be able to make them into an everyday creation of a cupcake.
When you are making these Chocolate Raspberry Cupcakes you are going to want to use an amazing chocolate cupcake recipe. If you’re looking for an extra raspberry flavor you can always mix in a cup of fresh raspberries to the cupcake batter before you bake them. Since fresh raspberries can be quite expensive in the off-season time you can also use frozen raspberries have thawed out instead of fresh raspberries in the cake batter. However you do not want to use frozen raspberries on the tops of these cupcakes.
