Time for cupcakes! Chocolate-Chocolate Cupcakes to be exact! I was excited for this week's recipe because it was going to fit in with Nutella week PERFECTLY! My original plan was to fill the cupcakes with Nutella cream but time got away from me and that didn't happen.
I put these off until the last minute and ended up making them right before we were heading out to the pumpkin patch. I just didn't have the time or energy to fill the cupcakes and make the ganache for the tops. So, I just melted some Nutella and used that for the tops! What a fantastic idea if I do say so myself! :P
These cupcakes gave the TWDers some trouble this week. A lot of people said that they turned out dry and there was a great, lively discussion on what to do to fix that. I tried using half butter/half oil in order to combat the dryness, but they still weren't as moist as I would've liked.
The cupcakes were okay... not great. They were definately edible but they weren't the best chocolate cupcake I've ever had. No offense, Dorie.... Still good, but not a fave.
Thank you to Clara from I Heart Food For Thought for hosting this week... head over to her blog for the recipe! As always, check out the TWD blogroll to see all the wonderful creations! I'm sure there will be amazing Halloween cupcakes out there today!
*NOTE: I'll have an actual Nutella recipe up later today for those of you who are following Nutella week!*
