Ultimate Chocolate Cupcakes

The Ultimate Chocolate Cupcake

This is easily my favorite cupcake ever. Generally speaking cupcakes aren’t a big deal to me. The ratio of frosting to cake is a turn off and yet here I am singing the praises of these and look how much frosting there is! There is even filling and I still like them. I like them a lot. A little cake, a little truffle, and some of the smoothest, silkiest frosting ever. What’s not to like?

Look at that filling!

The cake is moist, the crumb is tender. The filling and frosting which seem as if they’d be over the top are perfect together. They’re definitely worthy of a special occasion.

The people we shared these with loved them as well. The recipe originally came from Cook’s Illustrated, June 2010. You can get the recipe here. They’re a bit of work, but definitely worth the effort!

    How did you like the snow? We got 8 inches at my house in Plymouth.
    Those cupcakes look devine…the filling, frosting, and cake so chocolatey!!! Your cupcakes look professionally frosted. I am a bit lazy when it comes to making some things from scratch..I’ll bet these would be good with a doctored cake mix and the ganache and frosting….my audience is usually easily pleased!

      I’m so tired of the snow! It’s been quite the winter hasn’t it!?
      Thanks for the kind comment about the frosting. I’m not a decorator, but somehow those came out okay thanks to a big fat star tip and the smooth as silk frosting.
