A Damn Fine Cupcake

pre heat oven to 350F
prepare cupcake tin with paper

Melt in a double boiler:
8 T butter, cut into pieces
2 ozs. semi-sweet or bitter sweet chocolate
1/3 c Dutch-process cocoa

Meanwhile, in a separate bowl combine:
3/4 c flour
3/4 c sugar
1/2 t baking soda
3/4/t baking powder
1 t vanilla
2 eggs
1 t salt
1/2 c sour cream

Stir in melted chocolate.
Throw in a handful or two of chocolate chips for good measure.
Bake 18 - 20 minutes at 350 (180 c)
Yields about 12 small cupcakes (I prefer a larger, spilling over cake soi fill the paper to the top and get only 9)

Frosting is only necessary on a bland cake.

Experience shows that the type of sour cream you use makes the difference between good and great in this recipe.
