DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 350°.
  • Line a 12-cup muffin pan with foil baking cups.
  • Put 4 additional foil cups on a small baking sheet.
  • Sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt and baking soda.
  • In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • At medium speed, add the eggs one at a time, beating until each one is fully incorporated before adding the next.
  • Add the vanilla.
  • At low speed, alternately beat in the dry ingredients and the 3/4 cup of crème fraîche in 2 batches.
  • Spoon the batter into the foil cups, filling each one two-thirds full.
  • Bake the cupcakes for 15 minutes, or until springy when gently pressed and a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Let cool slightly, then remove from the pan.
  • Place a dollop of crème fraîche on each cupcake and serve.
