  • 1 (16.2 ounce) box organic vanilla cake mix (recommended: Dr. Oetker)
  • 3 organic eggs
  • 2/3 cup organic whole milk
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 4 ounces organic 72-percent dark chocolate, chopped
  • Confectioners' sugar, for garnish


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place the paper baking cups into the cupcake molds.

Melt the chocolate in adding it to a small glass bowl set over a simmering saucepan of water and stirring until it melts. Stir in the milk to thin it out a bit.

Follow the package instructions and prepare the vanilla cake mix. Blend the cake mix with 3 eggs, 2/3 cup milk, and 1/2 cup oil. Pour 1/2 the mix in a separate bowl. Mix the melted chocolate into one of the bowls and stir for a couple of minutes, until you have reached a nice dark colored mix.

 In each cupcake mold, use 1/2 vanilla and 1/2 chocolate mix, bake for 20 to 25 minutes.

 Serve with a sprinkle of confectioners' sugar. Enjoy!
