Greek Yogurt Chocolate Cupcakes with Blackberry Frosting


    For the Cupcakes:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • ½ cup 60% cocoa chocolate chips
  • ¾ cup + 4 tablespoons of flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ cup sweetened cocoa
  • ¾ teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 eggs + 1 egg yolk, at room temperature
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ cup Greek yogurt
  • ½ cup hot coffee
  • For the Blackberry Frosting:

  • 1 stick unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1½ cups powdered sugar
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 12 ounces of California Giant blackberries (reserve 12 for garnishing)


  • For the Cupcakes:

      • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
      • Line a cupcake tin with liners. Lightly spray the liners with non-stick spray.
      • In a microwavable bowl, melt the oil, butter and chocolate chips for about one minute, and then use a rubber spatula to stir until smooth. Set aside.
      • In another bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cocoa powder and sea salt. Set aside.
      • In yet another bowl, whisk together the eggs, yolk, sugars and vanilla.
      • Add the butter mixture and whisk until smooth. Add the flour mixture and Greek yogurt, mix until just combined. Add coffee. Make sure to not over mix!
      • Fill the liners with the cupcake mixture.
      • Bake for 18-20 minutes, depending on your oven. Use a toothpick to make sure the center is cooked through. Cool completely.
  • For the Frosting:

      • Puree blackberries using a food processor blender. Then use a fine mesh strainer to strain puree into a small bowl, until only seeds remain in the strainer. Use a small spatula to push the puree through the strainer.
      • In a large bowl, use a hand mixer (or a stand mixer) to whisk together the butter, powdered sugar, and salt until combined. Once the mixture is combined (around 3-5 minutes), add cream cheese. Mix until fluffy and smooth.
      • Add blackberry puree and mix until incorporated. Transfer frosting to a gallon Ziploc bag and refrigerate for about 30 minutes.
      • When cupcakes are cooled, remove them from the baking pan. Decorate by cutting off the tip of your Ziploc bag (for easy frosting), then top with a blackberry for garnish!
