Some important tips to keep in mind when baking cupcakes are, using quality ingredients in the batter to get that luscious depth of flavor. Using a good quality and the best vanilla extract will impact the flavour to a large extent, and you can tell the difference right away. Look for the best vanilla extract with no additives like corn syrup etc. Usually organic vanilla extract would be the best vanilla extract to choose from the wide range of vanilla extract brands available in stores. The ingredients on the back of the product should read as 100 percent pure vanilla. Choosing the best dark chocolate brand will give you the desired flavour in these cupcakes. For a healthy option in this recipe, try to choose best dark chocolate with at least 70 percent or more cacao in it instead of the regular chocolate. This ensures less sugar and processing in the dark chocolate and yields maximum health benefits as well.

Always keep in mind to fill the paper liners 2 /3 full only, to prevent the batter from spilling out and wasting it. It’s always better to use a scoop to fill the cupcake liners as opposed to eyeballing it. It’s very important to bring the ingredients to room temperature in order to prevent clumps in the recipe. You don’t want your guests biting into an unfortunate lump of batter! If the eggs and butter are still cold, let them sit long enough before you begin baking. Once the cupcakes are thoroughly baked, don’t let them cool for longer than a few minutes in the baking pan. The heat from the pan can cause the cupcakes to overcook and dry them out. Lastly, wait until the cupcakes have thoroughly cooled before you start frosting them. This is important because even if the cupcakes are slightly warm, it can melt the frosting and ruin it. Simple recipe tips like these should help you bake the best cupcakes ever.
