These yellow cupcakes look like vanilla cupcakes, and with all the vanilla cupcakes that I’ve been making lately, it’s surprising that they aren’t. Because they are made with cocoa butter instead of regular butter, they have a light, chocolaty flavor. If you weren’t told about their secret (as many of my tasters weren’t), you’d suspect there was more to these seemingly simply cupcakes than plain vanilla – but you might not be able to guess the familiar flavor that made you go back for seconds. Once I told you, you’d nod and taste the chocolate immediately!
Because the chocolate flavor is so understated, these cocoa butter cupcakes would be an ideal compromise cupcake to make for a family with some vanilla and some chocolate lovers. You could top some of the cocoa butter cupcakes with chocolate whipped cream (as shown above) and some with vanilla whipped cream.
