Clara of I Heart Food4Thought chose, Chocolate-Chocolate Cupcakes* on pages 215-217
Being new to TWD I didn’t want to miss doing this week but as much as we love chocolate around here, we’re not big chocolate cake fans. So, I added a heaping tablespoon of a strong instant coffee to the batter for a bit of an espresso flavor. Hubby gave it a 2 thumbs up. They took only 20 minutes and were much moister than last week’s Pumpkin Muffins (I think the coffee helped there as well as the shorter cooking time). We’re not big on bittersweet chocolate either and I had some cream cheese frosting left. So, I used the glaze on just a few, the cream cheese frosting on a few and the mixed the remainder of the glaze with the cream cheese frosting and did a few more. The mix of both the glaze and the cream cheese frosting was our favorite.
