I’m not a big fan at all of cakes made from the box. So whenever I make a chocolate sheet cake, I reach for my Grandma’s Chocolate Buttermilk recipe. It makes a cupcake/cake with substance…one which isn’t airy and doesn’t crumble and fall apart like the mixes seem to, and it’s chocolatey-good to boot!
The Hostess Cupcake uses the Chocolate Buttermilk batter as a base and then adds a tasty cream cheese/chocolate chip filling, and is topped with rich chocolate buttercream frosting. It’s a chocolate-lover’s delight! Next to the St. Patrick’s Day Cupcake , they are some of the best cupcakes I’ve bitten into.
In small increments, pour boiling water and buttermilk into the mixture, alternating and mixing between.
