Sunflower Java Chocolate Cupcakes

We stumbled on these adorable sunflower baking cups at Walmart the other day and just HAD to get them! Aren’t they cute? And of course, the perfect thing to go in them was our favorite chocolate cupcakes! This recipe is super easy and SOOOOOO amazing tasting. Even people who aren’t a fan of chocolate or coffee love these. They are super moist and not too sweet. The icing- oh the icing! I could seriously eat this stuff with a spoon. It is the most amazing stuff you have ever tasted! Not sickeningly sweet but oh so good!

 

Where Do Chocolate Cupcakes Originate?

America!

How Long Have Cupcakes Been Around?

The cake has been around since ancient Egypt 2000 years ago. The first use of the English word cake began in the 13th century. Cupcakes have been around for a long time. The first cookbook that mentions them is the American Cookery by Amelia Simms Back in 1796. She writes of cakes to be baked in small cups. 
 

Who Made The First Chocolate Cake?

Dr. James Baker in the fall of 1764 discovered the way to grind cocoa beans to make chocolate and we think that is where the first chocolate cake came from

What Did Cupcakes Use To Be Called?

Cupcakes used to be called number cakes or 1234 cakes because it was an easy way to remember the recipe for the cake. 1 c. butter, 2 c. sugar, 3 c. flour, 4 eggs, 1 c. milk, 1 spoonful of baking soda
