As promised in my last post, I’m dedicating an entire post to the Chocolate Cake I made last Sunday.
I’m not much of a baker. Too many details that matter too much. I can make a pretty mean batch of Nestle Toll House (“Nest-ley Toulllouussee… You American’s butcher the French language…” anyone? anyone?) but considering that recipe comes on the back of the chocolate chips and is pretty much fool proof, I don’t call that a victory. So when I found this recipe for chocolate cupcakes I figured I’d try it, but with the lowest of expectations.
I originally was going to do this exact recipe, from The Pioneer Woman’s Blog, but I forgot to buy cupcake papers, and I couldn’t find my muffin tin, and cupcakes are messy and I don’t really get the appeal, so long story short I made cupcakes into a cake using this recipe, topped it off with ganache-from-Above from the cupcake recipe, and stuck in some Hershey’s kisses for good measure. Let’s call it a Frankenstein of a cake. Or let’s call it heavenly. Your choice.
