Devil's Food Cupcake with Chocolate Frosting ~恶魔巧克力乳霜杯子蛋糕

My youngest: Mum: I love chocolate cake?
Mum: I love chocolate cake too!
My second: I super love chocolate cake,mum!
My eldest: i super duper, double love chocolate cake, mum!
Dad: I am the chocolate Devil, these are all my chocolate cupcakes!!!
All of us: LOL....

I am supposed to post and link this to Bake Along but something turn up the day before the link code close. My hubby twisted his ankle, it swollen so big and  and i was so panic till i totally forgotten about almost everything. Thank God his ankle is recovery now.  

Back to this Devil's Food Cupcake. this is definitely a keeper. The cake is moist, chocolaty and i love the fine crumbs. The frosting pairs so well with the cupcake. I don't have sour cream on hand, i substitute with Greek plain yogurt instead. The result is still very good!!

This is a very chocolaty and moist Devil's food cupcake.

The chocolate frosting is simply wonderful !
