Day 35 – Revenge of the Cupcakes

Not one to be dismayed by a simple recipe, I decided to replay yesterday’s project and attempt cupcakes again. Now to be honest I did cheat a little bit and used the chocolate cake recipe I used last week only modified to fit the constraints of a cupcake. As expected, the cupcakes turned out insanely good, very moist and fluffy although the first batch I made I was quite generous and filled them too much with batter which resulted in a conglomerate of cupcake tops when they finished baking.  The second batch was just right with little domes of chocolate goodness peeking out over the tops of the liners.

I have yet to find the ideal icing/frosting recipe but the one I did end up using which was a combination of one I found on allrecipes.com and some improvisation when it turned out too runny ended up working pretty well, it’s just a shame that I kind of dropped the two that I was photographing for the blog and smooshed the icing…ah well, it’s the taste that counts right?

There is a reason why I’ve gone cupcake crazy these last two days but I’m going to keep it under wraps for a few more days, then I’ll reveal why I made the cupcakes in the first place (besides to eat them!)

    Yum! Those look delicious!

    I’ve also found in my experience that cake batter makes fantastic cupcakes (and that brownie recipes make great cakes!).

    By the way, I have two awesome vegan recipes I should give you (either generally, or for use in the project): Aloo Dahl (potato and lentil curry) and falafels. Yum! Let me know if you want them. 😀
