Too much chocolate? Nah.
This week for Tuesdays with Dorie, Clara of I I Heart Food4Thought chose Chocolate-Chocolate Cupcakes on pages 215-217. At first, when thinking about making these, I intended to bring them to work. That never happened. Nope. Actually, Grumpy ate 4 of them! For the recipe for these yummy cupcakes, visit Clara's blog!
My MIL had one, my friend Amanda and her hubby and myself, I sent one home with Kristina, packed one in Grumpy's lunch box and saved the last two to take to my dad's house to give him and my mom as my "birthday cake" gift! So, the students were out of luck this week. They were just that good!Prior to making these I did some reading to see how others were faring with their cupcakes. Many people were mentioning how dry they were. This of course, made me a little concerned. So, I took great care in stirring and spooning the flour into my measuring cups so as to not make the cake too heavy or dry (it was mentioned maybe the flour was the cause of the dryness) and was rewarded with a nice moist chocolatey cupcake! I love the ganache recipe and will keep this one as a topping for cupcakes again in my future! Grumpy told me this morning that I could make them again and put a cream filling in them. I didn't admit to him that Dorie's "playing around" suggested that. lol I let him think he was being "contributing" to my baking.
