Decadent Chocolate Salted Caramel Truffle Cupcake. Chocolate cupcake with a chocolate salted caramel centre and frosted with chocolate ganache buttercream.
It was my birthday over two weekends and i’m a year older. Do not even ask me how old i am, lol. My birthday or born day as i sometimes call it was fantastic. Birthday celebrations began the night before my actual birthday. Laughs, drinks and plenty of dancing. At some point during the night my shoes came off. Sometimes i question my love for high heels. Any heel less than 5 inches is not acceptable. The higher the better. After hours of dancing, the pain becomes real. So it’s midnight and officially my birthday and my family and friends that singing happy birthday. I’m thinking yay , my cake is coming. I look and see my Mr. holding my birthday cake .The cake that was ordered by my friend Kojo, supposedly a colleague. The look on my face was priceless, i was told. I was tricked, tricked i say into baking and decorating my own birthday cake. I am plotting my revenge on all them. All in all i had a fantastic birthday.
Now let us take about these beauties. Rich, dark, moist not overly sweet chocolate cupcakes. Chocolate has got to one of my weakness and these beauties are chocolate personified.
Recipe for these cupcakes couldn’t be simpler. It is a one bowl recipe, with dry ingredients sifted into a bowl and then wet ingredients added . Using good quality cacao powder enhance the flavours of the cupcakes. The frosting contained a melted chocolate and cocoa powder, whipped for 5 minutes to give a fluffy texture. Not forgetting the chocolate salted caramel centre. This is the ultimate chocoholic cupcake. Pure decadence and indulgence.
