I typically hate cake in all forms, flavors, with any fillings, toppings or icings. I do not like cake flavor or cake texture. This cake was made on a whim since I wanted something chocolatey and the husband wanted cupcakes I decided I would try to find something that worked for both of us. I intended to make a ganache to go with it but as I didn't have all the ingredients necessary, I ended up sprinkling my cupcakes with a dusting of powdered sugar. They probably didn't even need that. The reviews do not do these justice. Honestly, they were amazing. I want another one but I am on a diet so one a day! I can barely wait until my one tomorrow though lol. Honestly, these were perfectly most and full of chocolatey flavor. The recipe was 100X better than any boxed cake mix and not hard to accomplish albeit a bit time consuming for a person making their first from-scratch cake. I made sure to beat the sugar and butter for at least 2 minutes as others had suggested to insure these came out moist and they did. Seriously, a moist cupcake is what I got out of this. It was dense and airy at the same time if that is even possible. I would follow the recipe to a T but I am so happy to find something that works for us that I will probably add things to it now for future baking trials! Can barely wait to flavor it with coffee as others have suggested!
