Moist, soft chocolate cake with creamy strawberry buttercream that’s bursting with fresh berries. These chocolate cupcakes with strawberry frosting make for the perfect combo.
Today I’m sharing these chocolate cupcakes with strawberry frosting over on Oh Sweet Basil. They’re perfect for Valentine’s day, or any time of year if you love strawberries and chocolate 😉 (Who doesn’t???)
The cupcakes are oh so moist with a delicious chocolate flavor. They’re made with cocoa powder for a rich chocolate flavor, oil to make them extra moist, and buttermilk gives the softest cupcake crumb.
Then for the strawberry frosting. Its creamy, smooth and bursting with fresh berries. It takes a few extra steps than making vanilla frosting – but it’s soooo worth it.
