White Chocolate Cupcake Recipe

3 stars from 30 ratings of this White Chocolate Cupcake Recipe

Using this recipe, you will be able to make twelve delicious cupcakes in about 40 minutes. In addition to the ingredients, I suggest you have two or three, medium-sized bowls, an electric mixer, cupcake holders, muffin tin and a wooden spoon at hand.

These cupcakes can be iced with frosting (as in the photo above) or covered in a chocolate ganache like those in the photo below.

I listed the almonds as optional, because my husband is not a fan, but I really like them with this recipe. For frosting, I suggest my white chocolate buttercream. Enjoy!



  • 3 oz. White Chocolate
  • 1/2 cup Light Cream
  • 3/4 cup Flour
  • 1 tsp. Baking Powder
  • 1/8 tsp. Salt
  • 2 Eggs, Large
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1/3 cup Butter, Softened
  • 1/2 cup Ground Almonds, Optional

Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 25 min
Ready in: 40 min
Yields: Makes twelve cupcakes


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and place twelve cupcake holders in a muffin pan.
  2. Melt the chocolate with cream over a double broiler (or in the microwave, but be sure not to burn it) and let cool.
  3. Mix the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
  4. In a medium bowl, beat the eggs, cream-chocolate mixture, and butter.
  5. Add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture and continue to beat at a low speed until blended.
  6. Pour the batter into the cupcake holders about 3/4 full.
  7. Put the pan in the oven and let bake for 25-30 minutes.
  8. After the cupcakes are firm on top, let them cool on a muffin rack for 30 minutes and ice them with your favorite frosting.
