Clara over at I Heart Food for Thought was our gracious host for this weeks Tuesday With Dorie (TWD) challenge and she choose Chocolate Chocolate Cupcakes! I heart chocolate much, and I knew this would be a fun challenge for me. We had a birthday celebration to go to over at Bryan’s house and I knew this would be the perfect gift for his girlfriend, Erin. Who doesn’t love a gooey chocolate chocolate cupcake for their birthday?
The recipe was pretty simple, chocolate, flour, sugar, and buttermilk, basically. In fact, it was so easy, that I kept reading through it thinking I had missed something. As with all of Dorie’s recipes, that I have made so far, it was true to the serving amounts – twelve cute little cupcakes.
Kept going back and forth on whether I should fill them or not. I really wanted too, but, I was not sure I would have time and I did not want to use store bought fluff. Right before the final step, I whipped up a batch of Dorie’s Marshmallows flavored with cardamon to use as my fluff! The finishing touch was a very deep bittersweet chocolate ganache topping with whimsical sprinkles! Very fun birthday celebration!
The end result: very easy recipe, great flavor but a bit on the dry side. I may try again before going back to my fall on cupcake recipe; but, I will add more buttermilk and bake a short amount of time.
