  • Spoon batter into the muffin cups 2/3 full.

    I had really bad problems. i think there was too muck sugar in the recipe. When we took them out of the oven, i noticed that it tasted too much like flour and sugar, and did not get enough of the chocolate flavor. The top also came out hard, as well as the cake. I added melted chocolate to the batter, but it still came out nasty. i would ask to change the recipe.

    So, this was my first time baking, and overall it was good. I made a mistake, instead of putting sugar with the wet i put it with the dry. This made me nervous to bake them, but they turned out pretty yummy. They were a bit dense but I consider that a minor. Great recipe for beginners!

    These cupcakes were great. We followed the recipe exactly, and didn't have any problems. We were able to make 16 nice sized cupcakes...which gave us some leftovers that got put into the freezer. They are keeping well (though 1/2 of those have already been eaten)! Wonderful way to make cupcakes from scratch! Thanks for the recipe!

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

I'm just a girl whos passion is for cooking, well some people would call it an obbsession rather.... I am a college student at RIT going for food management and prep, my favortie things! Most of my orignal recipes are made from left overs since I cook for one or two most days so there are always left overs in my house. I play mad scientist most days in my kitchen with left over chicken breasts lol. I am also a health food freak and a major gym rat, so I am always on the look out for good subs for the more unhealthy ingredients in most recipes. Also I am just starting to take pictures of the food I make on this site, so my photos are anything but stellar yet so I will not be offended in any way if you chooses not to use my pictures. <img src="http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b158/bella_donata/My%20Art/Recipezaar/goldsparkle.png" border="0" alt="Made by Bella14ragazza"> <a href="http://s19.photobucket.com/albums/b161/tisht/?action=view¤t=tish2.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b161/tisht/tish2.jpg" border="0" alt="Recipezaar Challenge 2008"></a> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/RSC%20Banners/RSC11-Participant.jpg"> <a href="http://s7.photobucket.com/albums/y254/Missymop/?action=view¤t=newtaginethbanner.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y254/Missymop/newtaginethbanner.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/CV.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://img.villagephotos.com/p/2003-11/484938/Spelling-Bee-stick2jpg.jpg"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/smPACp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i273.photobucket.com/albums/jj240/marienixon_715/kittencaljpg.jpg"> <img src="http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b158/bella_donata/My%20Art/Recipezaar/ScrapBook.png" border="0" alt="Made by Bella14ragazza"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/200_PACpic.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/pacbanner.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b158/bella_donata/My%20Art/ApronSwap2007.jpg" border="0" alt="Made by Bella14ragazza"> <img src="http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b158/bella_donata/My%20Art/Recipezaar/RedWhiteBlue.jpg" border="0" alt="Made by Bella14ragazza"> <img src="http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e347/Saturn6666/KiwiDutch/3chefstag1.jpg"> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/Zaar%20World%20Tour%203/ZWT3-Participation.gif"> <img src="http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/28636/zwt3banner.jpg"> <a href="http://photobucket.com" target="_blank"><img src="http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a209/tlonghorn/banners/BBQ2.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"></a> <img src=http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/TasteofYellow.jpg> <img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Derfcookathon.jpg">
