When Randal tried these cupcakes yesterday he declared them the best cake I've ever made. He has had this particular chocolate cake before as it's my go to chocolate cake recipe, it was the biscoff buttercream that was new. For those of you who don't know what biscoff spread is, it's basically cookie butter and it tastes just as good as it sounds!
¾ cup plus 2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
½ tsp. salt
1 cup sugar
¼ cup vegetable oil
1 large egg
½ cup black coffee
½ cup buttermilk
1½ tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup salted butter, softened
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
3 cups icing sugar
3 Tbsp milk
In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter and biscoff until smooth. Add the vanilla and icing sugar and mix until combined, add the milk and beat until combined.
