As February approaches, I have cupcakes and chocolate on my mind. . . dark, milk, German, Swiss, any chocolate will do. These cupcakes are made with dark cocoa powder, which has a deep, rich, flavor.
1. Start with good ingredients and always reduce the sugar
2. Experiment with different flours (the above cupcakes are half white/half whole wheat)
3. Make a small batch of frosting rather than store bought (less of a temptation to eat out of tub)
4. Top with fruit rather than frosting
I can't wait to show you more cupcake ideas and what I have been baking lately. More to come soon. . .
