Mocha choco cupcake with choco frosting Recipe


Description:
This extra rich and extra yummy cupcakes smells really good while baking and it's topped with a fluffy mocha frosting as well.

This is the cupcake recipe, although you can probably make a cake out of it. I've never tried it but I will


Ingredients:
  • Cupcake Batter
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup baking cocoa (I use hershey)
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup cold brewed coffee (strong coffee)
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 tsp. cider vinegar
  • 3 tsp. vanilla extract

MOCHA FROSTING
  • 1/3 cup of Ghirardelli baking chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup of butter (stick), softened
  • 2 cups confectioner sugar
  • 3-5 tbsp. cold brewed coffee




Directions:
  • In a large mixing bowl (you can use your mixer bowl), combine flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda and salt.
  • In a small bowl, whisk the eggs, coffee, oil, vinegar and vanilla. Add to dry ingredients, mix well.
  • Fill paper lined muffin cups three-fourth full.
  • Bake at 350*F degrees for about 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  • Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool.
  • FOR THE FROSTING, in a small microwaveable safe bowl melt the chips, about 1-2 minutes and stir until smooth. Cool 5 minutes. Make sure this is cooled down before doing the next step (butter mixture) or you will have melted butter.
  • Place butter in a large bowl and stir in the cooled melted chips, beat until blended.
  • Gradually beat in the confectioner sugar and coffee. Pipe frosting onto cupcakes how ever you like.
** STORE IN A TIGHT CONTAINER AND KEPT FOR 2 DAYS. THIS USUALLY DOESN'T LAST LONG AT THE HOUSE SO IT NEVER REALLY GET STORED. LOL!
