cupcakes for two

Sometimes all you want in life is a cupcake.  Amirite?

But you know that if you make a full recipe, then all those cupcakes will be sitting in your house...just waiting for you to eat them.  All of them.  So, what's a girl to do?  Just make two of course!  Because, let's be honest here, my self-control is not that strong.

The original recipe is for my favorite chocolate cake, and makes about 2 dozen cupcakes.  After several trial and errors, I managed to find the perfect ratios of everything to recreate the deliciousness, and is the right amount of batter to make two perfect cupcakes. 

You're welcome.
