Wait . . . I thought I didn't even like cake! Regardless, around 10:30 last night, I got it in my head that I REALLY needed to bake chocolate cupcakes. Why? I still don't know. I made the chocolate peanut butter cupcake recipe from Joy of Vegan Baking, let them cool overnight, and frostened them with peanut butter frosting this morning. (Basic buttercream, subbing peanut butter for the butter.) Yum?
Review? The frosting is amazing (how could peanut butter, powdered sugar, and almond milk NOT be amazing?) but the cupcakes were just okay. I probably wouldn't make the recipe again -- not chocolatey enough for me, and the middles sunk big time.
Speaking of chocolate cakes . . . my coteacher, Missy, has a birthday coming up, and has requested a gigantic double-chocolate cake for her birthday treat. Anybody have a rock star chocolate cake recipe they care to direct me to? I don't make many cakes, because I'm not a huge cake fan, and really want to knock this one out of the park! Ideas??
