Go-To Marble Cupcakes

Yield:
12 cupcakes
Level:
Intermediate
Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine salt
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 sticks (6 ounces) unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and position a rack in the middle of the oven. Line one 12-cup standard muffin tin with cupcake liners.

  • Whisk the flour, baking powder and salt together in a medium bowl.

  • In another medium bowl, beat the eggs and sugar with an electric mixer until light and foamy, about 2 minutes. While beating, gradually pour in the butter and then the vanilla.

  • While mixing slowly, add half the dry ingredients. Then add all the milk and follow with the rest of the dry ingredients. Take care not to overmix the batter.

  • Remove one-third of the batter (about 1 cup) and stir in the cocoa powder. Fill the liners evenly with yellow and chocolate batter, according to the marbling method you are following.

  • Bake until a tester inserted in the center of the cakes comes out clean, 18 to 20 minutes. Cool the cupcakes on a rack in the tin for 10 minutes, and then remove from the tin. Cool on the rack completely. Decorate as desired.
