Frost Me Nots

Recipe by  

"Cupcakes that are best when warm. They are like rich milk chocolate brownies. Also good when reheated in a microwave for about 15 seconds on high. The tops form a crusty top like a brownie."

Mmmmmmmm! I'm eating one that has been out of the oven for less than 10 minutes and it is sooo good. Chewy crispy top, velvety cakelike center. I think it should be a little bit cooler to serve though! The center is still really soft. I suspect that anybody who has a failure with this recipe will be tripped up by step number 3. Here's how to keep them from collapsing and to avoid the egginess. Where the recipe says "In a separate bowl, combine the eggs, vanilla, sugar and flour." Don't just stir them together, since there is no leavening in this recipe except the eggs, beat them with the sugar until thick and light lemon colored (about 3-4 minutes with a Kitchenaid) before adding the flour, vanilla and then the chocolate mixture. I got 18 cupcakes from my batch.

The batch I baked turned out dismally and VERY flat...I am so disappointed.

Description of this recipes says these should taste like a rich chocolate brownie. They have a decent texture but not much chocolate flavor.

This recipe is awesome! I just pulled a batch out of the oven and they came out perfectly! My younger brother was begging to eat them(unfortunately he couldn't, we're making them for a birthday) and i caught him several times sneaking licks of the batter! However, this recipe only got 4 stars because I'm a bit of a health freak, and when i took a peek at the nutrition facts, I was blown away! Also, these do need a pinch or two of baking powder to help them rise. Other than that, a fabulous recipe!

these are amazing. every time i have made them over the past year they have always been the best brownie-cupcake thing ever. sometimes i substitute the chocolate chips for broken up milk chocolate or hershey's chocolate syrup even, they both work wonders, especially if you like them super rich and gooey. thanks so much for this treasure! -tris

My 3 yr old daughter was playing with her playdough and said she was making "PUP-Cakes". I asked if she'd like to make REAL ones. She said, "REAL??? ones???? - oh YES!" We came here found this recipe - she helped measure and stir. She really enjoyed this recipe - EASY!!! Then said she had to go to the computer to get more recipes!

We enjoyed these cupcakes because they aren't extremely rich. If that is the type of chocolate craving you have then this is your cupcake.. If you want something dripping with chocolate pick a different recipe - or pour on some frosting on top of these!
