ISO Cupcake recipe

  • s

I'm looking for favorite cupcake recipes. I have never made homemade cupcakes and want to give it a shot -- any flavor/type welcome! Frosting recipes welcome too!

  1. I am having a hectic morning - so can't post recipes, but here's a website that'll help you out. It's mostly pictures, but some link to blogs that will have recipes and such. Keep an eye out for Chockylit's cupcakes, she has a spectacular website.

    1. If you have sub to Food and Wine their was an excellent chocolate cupcake with peanut butter filling and chocolate ganache frosting a few issues ago. Highly, highly rec'd.

        Here's a link to that recipe.


      2. It is the same as making regular sized cakes but I do recommend using cupcake/muffin liners in the tins as I would use buttered parchment in the bottom of a cake pan and especially with chocolate. Chocolate cake has a bad reputation for sticking. Then use your favorite cake recipe and that is all there is to it. Nothing special, just use your imagination.

          Just remember that when using a cake recipe, the baking time is typically 75% of the cake baking time when making cupcakes.

          Black bottom cupcakes are the best cupcakes I've ever eaten. Give 'em a try.
