Description

Chocolate Cupcakes stuffed with creamy Dulce De Leche! These are incredible.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs + 1 large egg yolk, at room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4 cup + 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour, not packed
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup full fat sour cream
  • 1/2 cup boiling water
  • 1/2 cup dulce de leche
  • For the Dulce De Leche Chocolate Buttercream:
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, VERY soft
  • 3 cups confectioners sugar, sifted
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted
  • 3 tablespoons half and half, more if needed (one tablespoon at a time)
  • 1 heaping tablespoon dulce de leche
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Toppings:
  • Dulce de leche, for drizzling, optional
  • Flaky Sea Salt, optional

Directions

  • For the cupcakes:
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees (F). Line a 12-cup cupcake/muffin tin with cupcake liners and lightly spray the liners with non-stick spray (optional, but it does help them peel right off).
  • Melt the oil, butter,and chocolate together in the microwave, heating in 30 second increments, and stirring between increments each time. You may also melt the oil, butter, and chocolate over very low heat on the stovetop, but I find the microwave option to be much easier. Whisk mixture until completely smooth; set aside to cool.
  • In a medium sized bowl combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cocoa powder, and salt; stir together until thoroughly combined; set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, yolk, sugars, and vanilla; beat until smooth. Add the cooled oil/butter/chocolate mixture and whisk until smooth. Add half of the flour mixture, then half of the sour cream. Repeat the process until everything is added, and be sure to mix until JUST combined - then quickly stir in the hot water. Its important not to over mix, here! Just stir until evenly combined.
  • Divide the batter among the 12 liners in your prepared pan. Bake for 16-18 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool *completely before filling with dulce de leche and topping with frosting.
  • Once cooled, use a small sharp knife to carve out a small hole on the top of each cupcake. The size and depth of this hole is up to you, but I recommend not carving too wide or deep, since this may cause your cupcake to fall apart when bitten into. Fill each hole with 1-2 teaspoons of dulce de leche.
  • For the Dulce De Leche Chocolate Buttercream:
  • Sift together the confectioners sugar and cocoa powder, whisking well to ensure its bump and lump free!
  • Using a handheld mixer OR a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter on medium-high speed until creamy; about 2 minutes. Reduce speed to low and slowly add the sifted sugar/cocoa powder, alternating with the half and half; add in the dulce de leche and salt. Once all of the ingredients have been added, beat on medium-high speed until light and creamy and combined; at least 2 minutes. Add more cream to the frosting if it seems too thick; add a touch more sugar to the frosting if it seems too thin.
  • Frost cooled, filled cupcakes and top with more dulce de leche and flaky sea salt, if desired.
  • Cupcakes can be kept in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 4 days; bring to room, temperature before serving.
