I was comparing the cake recipe I initially intended on using for cupcakes with a very similar martha stewart recipe intended for cupcakes. The latter had more baking powder and soda, which got me thinking that I might be better off going with it. The only thing is, the cake recipe, which i had wanted to use, incorporates chocolate into the batter, as opposed to just cocoa. Do you think I can add chocolate to teh cupcake recipe without altering the final product, or should I just stick with one recipe as opposed to merging the two?
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
3/4 cup warm water
3/4 cup buttermilk
3 tablespoons safflower oil
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
