There’s something about me you need to know.
I can’t do dry cake. Or gummy cake. Or bland cake.
I’d rather eat celery sticks.
Even if I’m dying for a chocolate fix.
I’ve tried just about every single-cupcake recipe (or recipes that make two single cupcakes) known to man. (Ok, not really, but I’ve tried a lot…upwards of half a dozen different ones.) I was hard-pressed to find even one that I considered to be worth the calories. I knew this needed to change.
This recipe is what I came up with, and it is everything a cupcake should be; not just a quick fix of chocolate, but a legitimately decadent, delicious cake in both flavor and texture. That also happens to satisfy a serious chocolate craving.
Just a quick tip for making cake; the most common problem I’ve discovered from people who ask me what they’re doing wrong because they end up with a rubbery/gummy-textured cake is that they’re over-mixing. Be careful not to over-mix, and your cake should have a moist, tender crumb.
This beautiful fluffy frosting you see on these cupcakes is none other than my Fluffy Walnut Spread made into mousse. You can use any frosting you like or feel free to just sprinkle on a light dusting of powdered sugar – they are so moist, no frosting required!
