One food blog that I have really enjoyed following these days is Can You Stay For Dinner, a blog written by a lovely lady named Andie. She’s quirky and fun and makes food writing pleasurable to read.
Oh, and her pictures are fantastic.
Well, a while ago, she posted a chocolate cupcake recipe: vegan and 100 calories. She boasted that the recipe was one of the best she’d ever tasted, and so delicious.
Well. If that’s not a challenge I’m not sure what is.
So, in the throes of a chocolate need, I made these little diddies. I followed the recipe, word for word, using cow milk and therefore making my version non-vegan.
And at first, I was not convinced. The batter did not taste good, and the muffins were stickier (post-baking) than I had anticipated. Hm.
Don’t misunderstand me; they filled the chocolate hole in my stomach. But they weren’t as sweet as I thought they would be. Hm.
Then: I froze them. (Gasp!) And later ate a frozen chocolate cupcake. Delicious. Ah!
Note: I’m sorry for the bland pictures. And I’m especially disappointed because I was not able to get a decadent, bitten cupcake picture. But good news! I found the cord for my camera so I can actually take real pictures now!
