I did a lot of baking last week, so this week I wanted something simple. No, not cake mix from a box…never! However a recipe that did not take a ton of time but delivered on deliciousness. These cupcakes were perfect!
The batter whips together very quickly, just make sure you do plan enough time to let the butter and eggs come to room temperature. All you need is one muffin pan and some paper liners.
Bake until golden brown and then remove from the pan to let cool.
Now for the frosting. First you start with some semi-sweet chocolate, finely chopped.
Add a cup of simmering cream and let stand 5 minutes. Whisk until smooth and pop in the fridge for about 45 minutes to cool.
Transfer the chocolate to a mixer and let it whip up your frosting into a mousse like consistency.
The whole dozen will be gone in one day.
