My husband loved these cupcakes, and he's a chocolate freak. I did add 1/2 cup white sugar to the cream filling to tone down the chocolate just a bit. With the extra sugar, even I like them, and I'm not nuts about chocolate.
I have to admit I was a bit worried that there were no eggs in the main part of the batter, so I did use 2 and adjusted the liquid (I used milk instead of water for the kiddies) accordingly. Worked great! These were very nice cupcakes. Do not attempt to make these without cupcake liners (as I did - they're not often available in Greece). They are very difficult to get out, even out of non-stick pans.
