Day 98 – Double Chocolate Cupcakes

6 Nov

There are very few things I like more than chocolate. Double chocolate is probably one of them… So, no-brainer. Double Chocolate Cupcakes (recipe below from Inspired Taste)

Book: The Friendly Shakespeare by Norrie Epstein.

The cake is thick and moist.  Almost like devil’s food, but a lighter chocolate version.

Chocolate-Frosting

The frosting is the consistency of pudding.  It tastes like chocolate pudding, if it were made with (real) melted chocolate.  So, pudding chocol-ified.

The parts are better together. It makes for a nice, quick & easy chocolate cupcake. Your standard chocolate cupcake. Not a “WOW”, but not a dud either. Just a nice, chocolate cupcake.
