I’ve shared my basic recipe for vanilla cupcakes already in a previous blog. Because I’ve been asked several times to share my recipe for chocolate cupcakes also, but haven’t had the time yet to do this because of other busy activities, I put the preparation of these cupcakes on top of my yet-to-do list and took a dive into my kitchen. In this way the recipe can be accompanied by a picture, but above all it is a good reason to enjoy it myself once again, because that’s been a while ago.
These cupcakes are pleasantly smooth and have a rich, dark chocolate taste. Because I’ve added a touch of espresso to it, the chocolate stays prominent and deliciously long in your mouth, causing an even greater taste explosion.
Chocolate cupcakes can be decorated with almost anything and you can really let your imagination run free with them. To give you a few examples: a simple butter cream, mocha cream, mascarpone cream, strawberry cream, peanutbutter cream, etc. etc. They are ideal for a frosting of whipped meringue or even heavy cream. In short, too many to mention really.
So for anyone who is interested to prepare them, here’s the recipe.
I wish you a lot of pleasure and creativity!
