Very good chocolate cake recipe. I tried the recipe exactly as written and loved the texture and the taste. I would have added a bit more peppermint flavoring. Also the oven temperature was not given, so I baked at 325 degrees. I made regular-sized cupcakes and baked 15-18 minutes. These tasted much better than a mix.
There's no oven temp listed. 350F must be assumed. I just pulled 48 mini cupcakes out of the oven and put in a toaster oven sized brownie pan of leftover batter (easily another 2 dozen cupcakes).
I used a different icing, so I can't comment on that, but the cake was delicious! I was nervous because the batter seemed so thin and runny, but it baked into a really moist, fluffy cake with just the right hint of peppermint. I will definitely make this again!
These mixed and baked perfectly, and the texture was tender and moist. These aren't bites per say, more like mini cupcakes with frosting. However, I don't even like mint and chocolate (made these for a party) and I could barely restrain myself from eating the whole pan.
Also, I had vanilla frosting on hand so I just put peppermint extract in that and dyed it green. So good!
Made it for my English class, they all loved it!
