Chocolate Cupcakes


2 cups All-Purpose Flour


2 cups Sugar


1/2 cup Cocoa Powder


2 tsp Baking Soda


1 tsp Baking Powder


1/2 tsp Salt


1 cup Vegetable Oil


2 Eggs


2 cups of Butter Milk


2 teaspoons Vanilla


2 ounces of Unsweetened Chocolate


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees


2. Line muffin tin with cupcake/muffin liners


3. Mix together flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder and salt.


4. Melt chocolate


5. Add eggs, oil, buttermilk, vanilla and chocolate - mix until combined.


6. Spoon mix into liners 2/3 full.


Bake for 20-25 minutes or until tooth pick comes out clean.


Ganache Filling


1 cup of Bittersweet or Semisweet chocolate (I used chocolate chips)


3/4 cup of Heavy Cream


2 tablespoons of butter/margarine


Heat heavy cream and butter together, bring to a boil. Poor the heavy cream over chocolate and leave for five minutes. Stir the chocolate until combined completely, as it should be melted by the cream. For the filling consistency I wanted - I put the ganache in the refrigerator in order for it to firm up.


Once the cupcakes are out of the oven and cooled, take a sharp knife and cut the top of the cupcake in the shape of a triangle. Fill cupcakes with ganache and cut off (or eat :P) the bit of cake on the top you cut off so the cake does not stick up when you put the top back on.


I then quickly whipped up some white chocolate butter cream icing, piped it on and topped the cupcakes with a piece of Hershey's Milk Chocolate to complete the "Quad" in Quadruple Chocolate Cupcakes :)


I thought that the sweet white chocolate buttercream paired with the ganache balanced each other out perfectly - helping to make it the chocolate lovers dream!
