It was quite a busy week last week for my family, but thankfully I was able to find the time to sneak in this week’s challenge. I actually had the ingredients ready, I was just waiting for the right time to try it out.
I got the recipe from Home Cooking Rocks. Originally, I saved this recipe for the chocolate cream cheese frosting only, but I figured I might as well try out the cupcakes as well. Here, I used Hershey’s cocoa powder for both the cupcake batter and the frosting. It was interesting to see the baking soda fizzle when the vinegar was added.
Here’s a picture of the cupcakes fresh out of the oven:
Interestingly enough, the cupcakes kind of sunk after it cooled down. I’m not sure what caused that; perhaps the baking soda? I whipped up the frosting, put it in a temporary piping bag, and frosted swirls on half the cupcakes.
Then I got tired of putting it in the piping bag (it was very fiddly!), so I ended up just spooning the frosting on top of the cupcakes.
It’s very chocolate-y! I like how the taste of the cream cheese just come up and surprise you. It was just a little surprising that there was actually very few cupcakes produced. Maybe I’ll try smaller cupcakes next time.
