Chocolate Chocolate CupcakesPosted: July 15, 2007
Ever since I purchased Dorie Greenspan’s book Baking: From My Home to Yours, I have pored over the recipes and drooled over the lovely photos. The recipe introductions are written in a chatty and personal tone, and the instructions themselves are very specific and clear. I could spend many more enjoyable hours reading through this book.
For a birthday dinner this weekend, I decided to bake the Chocolate Chocolate Cupcakes from Dorie’s book.
As I unmolded the cupcakes from the muffin tins, I noticed that they were a lot darker than the ones shown in the recipe photo. I pondered this for awhile…and then it dawned on me. I was supposed to melt two ounces of bittersweet chocolate for the batter and three ounces of it for the frosting…did I mix up the measurements? Yup. But fortunately, the cupcakes still turned out just fine!
This is an excellent recipe — simple yet delicious. Two thumbs up for sure! If you have this book and you like chocolate, I highly recommend trying these cupcakes.
Stay tuned for another Dorie recipe review later in the week!
