(Cup) Cakes for a crowd
I'm looking for 2 yummy recipes that can be made in 9 x 13 pans for about 20 people, or maybe cupcakes or muffins (they aren't huge here). I'm thinking about the boyfriend bait blueberry cake as 1, but not convinced I couldn't do better (although I do have home grown blueberries). This is for an afternoon cake and coffee event at work.
Suggestions? I've done a search and come up with some ideas, but still looking for others...
You might consider Texas Sheet Cake for an option. A straightforward buttermilk chocolate cake, meant to be served thin from the sheet pan. For the icing instead of the one in this link, go ganache! It goes great with this cake.
For the ganache: Pour boiling heavy cream over an equal amount of chopped semisweet chocolate or chocolate chips, add a little vanilla or butter if desired. Pour over cooled cake.
Another cake I like for a group: I make a 13 x 9 x 2 chocolate cake. Cut it in half lengthwise and fill with whipped cream and cover in ganache.
