TWD: Chocolate-Chocolate Cupakes

Wednesday, October 29, 2008

Today's recipe was chosen by Clara from I*heart*Food4Thought.
Thank you Clara!


You can find the recipe and her beautiful execution here:

My adjustments:
Many people said these came out dry, so I took the suggestions of some members and made the following adjustments:

* Added about a tablespoon of vegetable oil with the melted chocolate
* Used half buttermilk and half plain yoghurt

I made a double batch and got about 3 dozen cupcakes (I underfilled some). They were tasty and moist, but the chocolate taste in the cupcakes was not "deep" or "intense" enough in my opinion.




I would've loved to fill these, but I plainly didn't have the time or energy do so.

I'm a fellow TWD baker, and I was thinking that it would be nice if we all could chip in and get Laurie some small token/gift for all the work she does. Would you be willing to contribute? If I can get enough people, it would only be about $1 per person. No pressure :-) Let me know! bethberg12@yahoo.com
