My daughter prepared this delicious cupcakes, surprisingly easy to make and works like a dream, what a lovely chocolate-caramel surprise lurks in moist rich sponge! These were pretty fabulous and definitely a keeper! She chose not to dribble them with caramel syrup since they are already pretty rich and sweet. Lovely recipe, MellyBelly, made for PAC Fall 2011!
