I found this recipe in a cookbook that was given to me by a friend. I followed the recipe, but tweaked it a little bit to taste like Terry's Chocolate Orange in a cupcake!


  • Terry's Chocolate Orange Cupcake
  • 1/2 cup Unsalted butter softened
  • 3/4 cup Granulated sugar
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 2 Tsp. Orange Rind
  • 3 Semi-sweet chocolate baking squares
  • 3/4 cup Sour milk
  • 2 cups All-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp. Salt
  • Chocolate Orange Icing
  • 4 cups Icing sugar
  • 8oz block Cream Cheese
  • 1/2 cup Cocoa
  • 1/4 cup Hard margarine
  • 2 tsp. Orange rind


  • Cream margarine and sugar in large bowl. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Add orange rind. Beat well.
  • Head and stir chocolate and sour milk in heavy medium saucepan on medium-low head until chocolate is melted. Mixture will look curdled. Remove from head. Let stand for 5 minutes.
  • Combine flour, baking soda and salt in medium bowl. Add to margarine mixture in 3 additions, alternating with chocolate mixture in 2 additions, beginning and ending with flour mixture.
  • Line 2 cupcake pans, and fill each cup about half way with batter. They WILL rise significantly.
  • Bake in 350 degree oven for about 25-30 minutes; until a wooden pick comes out clean.
  • Icing:
  • Beat all 5 ingredients in medium bowl until smooth.
