Whether you have a cupcake with chocolate frosting, a marble batter, or indulge in a full-on chocolate indulgence in cupcake form, there is no wrong way to enjoy a chocolate cupcake.
The origins of the chocolate cupcake date back 1796. They were first published in the cookbook American Cookery; however, they were not referred to as cupcakes but, simply as cakes cooked in small cups. The name cupcake was eventually coined by Eliza Leslie in 1828.
