I have just had the two best days with my chums. There was cake baking, film watching and a glass of vino or two. Amazing.
We made the most brilliant cupcakes called 'Black Bottom Cupcakes' from the Hummingbird Bakery recipe book. I have to admit i was a bit dubious about them at first and had to be talked into making them, but boy was a glad i was! They are half chocolate cake, half cheesecake with chocolate chips and cream cheese icing! I think i must have been half mad not to want to give them a go.
The recipe was actually fairly straightforward and they came out perfectly. The only alteration i would make (if you fancy giving them a go) is not to add all the egg to the cheesecake part of the cupcake when mixing the ingredients together. We added all the egg to the first lot we made and it was far too runny. Add about a third of an egg and that should be fine.
