With more and more of you guys being in isolation we’re going to try and continue to provide everyone with easy and delicious recipes to bake at home, and this Chocolate Cupcake recipe is possibly as easy as it comes! Particularly if you have ordered yourself one of our Baking Kits from the Cupcake Jemma website, available in Chocolate, Vanilla, Vegan Red Velvet and Gluten Free Vanilla. We’re providing you with everything other than the fresh ingredients, even down to the cupcake cases! So really, it couldn’t be simpler. If you have yours already then bake along with Sally as she takes you step-by-step through the kit.

Crumbs & Doilies is a small company with no investors or financial backing other than what we put into it – thank you sooo much to everyone for carrying on supporting us through this incredibly tough time. Every Cupcake Kit and item of merch we sell on the Cupcake Jemma website will go towards helping us survive this outbreak, and ensuring we are still here baking cakes, making videos and spreading the love once it’s all over. We can’t do it without you and we’ve all been incredibly moved by the amount of support out there for us. We promise to keep the videos coming during the lockdown and stay tuned because we’ll be adding more Cake Kits to the store very soon! Jemma x

    Isn't there any one to help me

  2. Mary Coombe says:

    Coffee makes chocolate taste burnt!

  3. AnyaAnya Em says:

    Is there a way to get these measurements into cups? I tried to do it on my own but every website/post shows different measurements. 🙁 and no other recipe I found online looks as good as this one. 🙂

  4. H O says:

    But why is this package £17? All the ingredients you’re providing in the box isn’t more than £2.50?

  5. David Herbert says:

    Fantastic baking skills

  6. watchingyou says:

    If I was to use this recipe and make a chocolate cake instead of cupcakes, what size tin would you recommend I use?

    You're stars ❤

  8. Minahil Irfan says:

    Did you use Dutch processed Coco?

  12. Rebecca Wallace says:

    I just made these without the kit and the mixture was as thin as like oil or water and they had big domes on top. I did make the buttermilk from scratch using white wine vinegar and that is the only thing I can think of that made them turn out like this. If anybody knows please let me know. They were still delicious though

  13. Shanae Oneika says:

    I guess my only questions is, how do you make coffee? 🙈

  14. Julie Mathé says:

    It’s such a shame that you don’t deliver these baking kits outside the UK… I love in Belgium and am staring to develop a passion for baking, but here we don’t have many companies who deliver baking kits… I guess I’ll just try to make it with the ingredients in the description! 😊
