Sharing is caring!

Clara over at I Heart Food for Thought was our gracious host for this week’s Tuesday With Dorie (TWD) challenge and she picked Chocolate Chocolate Cupcakes!  I love chocolate, so I knew this would be a fun challenge for me.  

Chocolate Chocolate Cupcakes

We had a birthday brunch celebration to go to and I knew this would be the perfect gift for our friend, Erin.  Who doesn’t love a gooey chocolate chocolate cupcake to celebrate 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.

I kept going back and forth on whether I should fill them or not.  I really wanted to, 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.

Pour yourself a big glass of milk and head over to Clara’s site for the recipe, and while planning our baking session be sure to check out the other TWD bakers!
