These Easy Yellow Cupcakes are the quickest and most delicious one-bowl method cupcakes ever! Beloved by kids and grown-ups alike, it takes just minutes to make these from scratch. The Chocolate Frosting is equally easy and finger-lickin’ great!
So. Last night we all took in some Super Bowl. If you’re a Seahawks fan, cupcakes that scream celebrate! are in order. If you’re a Denver fan, there’s no question you need about a dozen cupcakes right now.
And there’s no better way to celebrate, nor is there a more comforting consolation than these golden yellow cupcakes.
These baby cakes couldn’t be easier to pull off…they are the epitome of yummy one-bowl baking. Don’t bother yourself with many bowls and dishes to wash. Just throw all the ingredients in one big batter bowl, and watch the magic happen…
Of course, you know you’ll need a separate bowl for making the fabulous chocolate ganache frosting. I do warn you that this chocolate frosting is not only super easy, but irresistibly rich and chocolatey. They are the perfect topping for these tender, moist cupcakes.
These aren’t just cupcakes for kids. Sure, your kiddos will devour them. But grown-ups alike will appreciate their tender crumb, golden buttery flavor, and well…who doesn’t love classic cupcakes?
These are definitely best eaten the day they’re made. Which is no problemo, because you can easily make a batch the day you want to serve them. They are melt-in-your-mouth soft on that first day, so go ahead and don a generous spirit with devouring these! Yes, they’ll still be yummy tomorrow, but they’re unbeatable when made and eaten today.
I literally made these on a wintry afternoon right before the kids got home from school. Got a hankering for cupcakes for tonight? Done.
Perfect for birthdays, pick-me-up days, celebrate days, and I-want-a-cupcake days.
