These Stracciatella Cupcakes are inspired by stracciatella gelato. The cupcakes have a fluffy vanilla base that is generously flecked with shards of finely chopped dark chocolate. There is just enough chocolate to give you a hint in each bite without overwhelming the soft vanilla flavor of the cake.
The cupcakes are topped with a vanilla buttercream icing that is also swirled with finely chopped chocolate. The cupcakes aren’t as cooling as a scoop of gelato, but they’re just as indulgent.
