We aren’t chocolate fans around here and my dad, who is the usual recipient of my chocolate goodies, was out of town this past week. So I attempted to halve the recipe. Apparently, halving one egg and one egg yolk is more difficult than I expected. As you can tell from the picture, they came out a very strange texture.
Then when I went to make the glaze I realized we were out of butter. Did I drive to the store to get butter? Or maybe make another kind of frosting? Nope. I used margarine. MARGARINE! Now in that picture you can tell just how oily my glaze was.
Needless to say, I threw all 6 of these away. Very sad day. I plan on making these again soon because I do want to try them. It’s always nice to have a good chocolate cupcake recipe.
Thank you to Clara for hosting and you can get the recipe over there.
