Hi everyone - yesterday was my dad's birthday and I made some homemade cupcakes. I'll be honest, I cook alot, but I don't truly bake alot. I usually just use box mixes, which in my family makes you a master baker lol. I've dabbled in breads before but not much else. Anyways! I made these chocolate cupcakes and couldn't believe how yummy (the batter could not stop finding its way to my mouth for some reason...) these are, not to mention just as easy as getting a box mix. So in the spirit of the swap, here is the recipe:

Chocolate Cupcakes

1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 pound butter, softened
3 eggs
2 squares baking chocolate, melted (I used more than two)
1/2 cup sour cream
3 tbsp. water
1 tsp. vanilla

preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Fill muffin/cupcake tin with paper cups. In large bowl cream together butter, sugar, and eggs until fluffy. Stir in melted chocolate, sour cream, water and vanilla. Add flour and baking soda to chocolate mixture and stir until combined. Pour batter into papers and bake for 15 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
Frost if desired.

Mine actually baked for about 18 minutes - gotta love the toothpick test.
I didn't use homemade frosting  Sad, but that's a recipe I'll learn later. I bought two cans of whipped frosting in vanilla and chocolate, which was nice and not too heavy.

Wow, everything on here looks so awsome!
I'm glad you liked Indigokat, even if it does lack the color of your kitchen. And those crackle cookies? They've been likened to a form of food crack. I've had to make batches for people at Jim's work, my family....

I'd love a pie themed swap! I couldn't buy a premade crust though.... just wouldn't be able to do it...ack!

Well, I knew the recipe said two squares of baking chocolate. When I went to the store, I just grabbed a bar of baker's reserve  baking chocolate, which was divided into six thin rows with three squares in each row. I just didn't think two of those small squares looked like enough chocolate Tongue so I divided the bar into three smallers bars of two rows each and I used two of the smaller bars (which I guess would have been 12 little squares!). After melting it though, it seemed like the right amount of chocolate for the amount of batter I had going.
