these are by far the best chocolate cup cakes I have ever made.I did not have the mixed spice so I used nutmeg,ginger and cinnamon.The boiling water was hot enough to melt the choco chips. I used plain yogourt instead of sourcream.There is no need for topper.
These were really yummy. The cooking time was a lot less in my oven, but I think I need to check my oven's temp. I made Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting for these, which was a perfect, yummy topper!
Heaven! Although I decorated mine a bit more simply x
I've made these a few times to rave reviews - it seems a bit fiddly when you read thru the recipe for the first time but they are worth the effort. I iced with dark choc-sour cream icing and decorated with foil hearts for Valentine's Day.
these cakes are so amazing. i left out the icing and decor, but they are wonderful plain. so fluffy and spicy. i made these a few times this winter, everybody loved them.
