Georgetown Cupcake Mini Marble Cupcakes

Hey guys!

Once a week my family brings dinner to my Dad’s assistant who is battling cancer. So I thought why not make some cupcakes to cheer her up! I mean who doesn’t love cupcakes…am I right? I flipped through my go to Georgetown Cupcake cookbooks looking for a fun recipe and I decided why not make some marble cupcakes. That way she gets best of both worlds with vanilla and chocolate since I didn’t know what her favorite flavor was. I must say they turned out amazing and on top of it they made her day!

Here’s the super easy recipe. Makes 48 mini cupcakes or 24 normal cupcakes. I decided to make normal size cupcakes because they are easier to transport.

  1. 2 1/4 cups sifted all-purpose flour
  2. 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  3. 16 tablespoons (2 sticks) unsalted butter
  4. 1 1/4 cups sugar
  5. 4 large eggs
  6. 3/4 cup vanilla yogurt
  7. 1/2 cup whole milk
  8. 2 1/2 teaspoons sifted cocoa powder

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line cupcake pan with liners
  2. Sift together the flour and baking powder and set aside
  3. In the bowl of the stand mixer or in a bowl with a handheld electronic mixer, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, approximately 3 to 5 minutes
  4. Add eggs slowly, mixing after each addition
  5. Add the yogurt, mixing until well incorporated
  6. Add one half of the flour mixture followed by one half of the milk. Repeat and mix until fully incorporated.
  7. Divide batter in half and set half aside. To the half remaining in the bowl with the mixer add cocoa powder.
  8. Using a mini ice cream scoop , transfer the vanilla batter into each baking cup so that is it one-third full. Repeat with the chocolate batter and swirl together using a toothpick.
  9. Bake 12 to 14 minutes or until the toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Frosting: So I knew for the frosting I wanted to make a chocolate buttercream but I didn’t have a recipe so I went on Wilton.com and found a very tasty one! The link to the recipe is posted below.
