Ultimate Chocolate Cupcakes
There are some people that when they tell me something is good I just have to believe them. When Anna from Cookie Madness says something is good I have to try it. And she raved about these Ultimate Chocolate Cupcakes, so I had to make them. Wow. That's a lot of chocolate. If you're a chocolate fan then these are for you.
I followed Anna's recipe here to make six cupcakes.
A few differences. I meant to buy bread flour but never did, so I used regular flour. We didn't have any bittersweet chocolate so I used half semi-sweet and half unsweetened chocolate.
I'm not sure if baking with coffee is a Mormon no-no, but I did it anyway.
The frosting was a new one for me. Cooking the egg white, sugar and salt over the stove then adding the butter, vanilla and chocolate was pretty interesting. My frosting was not fluffy so I put it in the freezer for 15 minutes and then mixed it again. It fluffed right up! It's so rich it gave me a headache right away-a typical sign that there's a lot of chocolate!
