Help!!! I am making cupcakes for my daughter's class tommorow and I have exactly enough cake batter for the 24 kids in her class. She just told me that she doesn't just want vanilla cupcakes but chocolate as well, I am wondering if I can add cocoa powder or melted chocolate to make the batter chocolate. Has anyone ever tried this ? Do you think that this would work? Please Help I need the cupcakes y the morning and dread another trip to the grocery store for more ingredients.
Thanks for your help in advance, Jasmne
I add cocoa powder to my french vanilla batter to make my chocolate. It will be just fine.
Oh absolutely! You can simply add cocoa powder to make the chocolate! That tends to work better for me than melted chocolate, but I know you can use that too if you need to. Just give a healthy dose for a nice chocolately flavor. Another dash of vanilla extract will also complement the chocolate flavor nicely!
I have added cocoa powder to yellow cake to make the fudge part of fudge marble cake. I would think it would work the same.
I am so glad you asked this, I have been wondering this myself!!

I add cocoa powder and a little expresso powder to part of the cake batter when I do marbled cakes. Tastes really good!
