Since I made three cupcakes the other day, does that mean its ok to post this the third day instead of the second? I choose yes. Ohhh,but these cupcakes are yummy! Adapted from Foodess’ Moist Chocolate Cake recipe down to a recipe for three!! Seeing as most recipes need an egg, and you cant really half an egg very well (or its a waste), most of these recipes are turning out to be for three. Oh well! Just one more to share (or eat)!
Lately I have made a lot of soup. As in three very full stock pots full: Carrot Ginger and Tomato Basil Soup. VERY yummy! Sometime I will share my adventures with those.
I have also lately been obsessed with making doughnuts. Well, maybe anything you fry. But today I made Honey Crullers from Not So Humble Pie’s website. Except I cut down the recipe by about 1/4. Becuase who really needs 12 doughnuts on hand. Really.
They started out like this. But some went really wrong…
Like this… so sad.
But then add this:
and you end up with these!!! Quite respectable for my first try.
… and quite yummy. You see, I had to eat the particularly mangled ones. I had to.
Anyways. This is not a post about doughnuts. Its about cupcakes. One day there will be a post on doughnuts though.
Two Cupcakes Every Two Days: Moist Chocolate Cupcakes for Three
This recipe is Oh So Yummy. Very rich. For chocolate lovers only, which is why I didn’t make them for me. (I know I’m crazy, I’m not the biggest fan of chocolate) But I digress.
These ones are for my roommates. I made a first batch. They were terrible. I guess I was a little too liberal with my measurements. So I made them again, here they are.
Perfect shaped cucakes!!!! How delightful!!! P.S. This is my favorite muffin tin up top 🙂 the super old kind: it has the best shaped bowls. And yes it does have holes drilled in the bottom… we make a special chicken recipe in those tins!
I iced them with a chocolate frosting concoction of cocoa, icing sugar and whipping cream. Add a strawberry on top and you have the perfect cupcake for the chocolate fans!
1/4 c sugar
1/4 c flour
1/4 c cocoa
a pinch of salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
3 tbsp buttermilk (or milk with a splash of vinegar to thicken it)
splash of vanilla
3 tbsp hot strong coffee (I use starbucks via and hot water) or just hot water
This is a one bowl shebang!!! Mix it all, bake it at 350° or 325° if you have convection for about 15 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean and your set to enjoy! Super easy cleanup.
I think this calls for a late night exercise binge, all this baking and tasting…
Have a good night and see you in two days. Up next, classic vanilla.
