Chocolate Fudge Cake - Chris' Results
I made the Chocolate Fudge Cake recipe last Thursday into cupcakes. The recipe went together very quickly. The girls & I had invited some friends over Saturday night since I had Sunday off and so I knew the cupcakes would keep well for that. The batter was very dense and the resulting cupcakes were too. Very fudgy and dense, but still moist. For frosting, I made tiny batches of both cream cheese-vanilla frosting and chocolate. I made both frostings very thin, then just dipped & swirled the cupcakes in the frosting - very quick. The cream cheese frosting was really too thin to hold up against the chocolate, so I would make a proper batch next time & mix it to a thicker, spreading consistency, then put a nice layer on. I found a recipe for chocolate frosting on the back of the Ghiradelli baking cocoa can and modified that - it was VERY yummy. It came out glossy - but stayed soft and had a good, chocolatey flavor. The chocolate frosted cupcake were the clear favorite. This recipe is every bit as good as Grandma said - a definite keeper!
