Craving for something sweet? If you love chocolate, it’s time to rejoice!
This short article will tell you how to make one of my all-time favorites: chocolate cupcakes with Ganache frosting. This sinfully good dessert is guaranteed to make your day.
Ready? Okay, here’s what you need:
To make the cupcake, prepare 2 cups of sugar, 1-3/4 cups of all-purpose flour, 3/4 cup of Hershey’s Cocoa powder, 1-1/2 teaspoons of baking powder, 1-1/2 teaspoons of baking soda, a teaspoon of salt, 2 eggs, a cup of milk, 1/2 cup of vegetable oil, 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract, and a cup of boiling water.
For the Ganache, you’ll need 100 grams (gms) of roughly chopped dark chocolate, 100 gms of heavy cream and 3 tablespoons of sugar.
Let’s start with the cupcake. Heat the oven to 350°F. Grease and flour two 9-inch round baking pans. Combine sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt in large bowl. After stirring, add eggs, milk, oil and vanilla. Beat on medium speed using a mixer for 2 minutes. Then stir in boiling water. Next place batter into muffin cases. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes.
Now for the Ganache: scald the cream in a saucepan. Remove from flame and put all the chopped chocolate and sugar. Set aside for 5 minutes and stir everything until the chocolate has dissolved. Again set aside for an hour. By then, the mixture should have a thick spreadable consistency. Pipe it over the cupcakes and go knock yourself out!
