I made these this afternoon when my cousin Paulina was over hanging out. It was the perfect little afternoon treat. Takes just a couple of minutes to prepare, and they are so yummy and chocolatey! I got the recipe here : http://www.brettbara.com/baking/recipe-two-exactly-two-chocolate-cupcakes/ and I am just so pleased with it. What else could I make just 2 of? Vanilla cupcakes? Brownies? It's so exciting and perfect because I always have these ingredients on hand, I could have a cupcake to myself anytime I want :-)!
3 Tbsp. flour
2 Tbsp. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. cocoa powder
1/8 tsp. baking powder (just half a 1/4 tsp.)
Pinch of salt
2 Tbsp. cold water
1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
Splash vanilla extract
1 Tbsp. chocolate chips (optional* or white choc. chips, or butterscotch chips, or nuts, etc!)
1 Tbsp. melted butter
1 Tbsp. + 2 tsp. cocoa powder
3 Tbsp. confectioner's sugar
1 tsp. milk
pinch of salt
Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. In a small bowl whisk together flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt.
Step 2: In a separate bowl whisk together water, oil, and vanilla extract.
Step 3: Whisk together flour mixture and wet ingredients until combined.
Step 4: Pour batter into 2 cupcake liners in a muffin pan. Top with chocolate chips.
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean (mine took closer to 20 min)
Step 1: Whisk together melted butter, cocoa powder, confectioner's sugar, milk, and salt.
Refrigerate for 5-10 to let it set a bit before frosting cooled cupcakes.
ENJOY :) I recommend enjoying with a glass of cold milk... :)
