Chocolate, Vanilla and Marble cup cakes


One dough 3 kinds of cakes, sound good? I know that most of us want a cupcake recipe that we can use it time and time again (in every occasion too). After reading this recipe, you can see, it a plain pound cake in a cup, easy and straightforward. You can get three kinds of cake from dividing the dough that can be good because there will be a lot of choice for everyone or you can have only vanilla cupcakes by omitting the cocoa or have all chocolate cupcakes by double the quantity of the cocoa and mix it in the dough. The decoration is up to you but using melted chocolate is easy (plus if you use a good quality, your cupcakes will be more delicious).
