Martha Stewart Cupcakes

Everyone has heard of Martha Stewart Cupcakes and this recipe for One-Bowl Chocolate Cupcakes, is as the name suggests, super easy because they are made ...guess what ... in one bowl.

What I really like about these chocolate cupcakes is that all the ingredients are pantry staples. I have everything on hand all the time so I can make a batch of cupcakes whenever I want.

"You even have buttermilk always on hand??!!" No, I don't. I definitely cheat with the buttermilk and use a little under 3/4 cup of milk and add a tablespoon of vinegar. Let this sit for 5 minutes and you have a pretty good buttermilk imitation.
