Chocolate Zucchini Cupcakes(courtesy of 101cookbooks)
Nothing beats the smell of chocolate and spice!!
1 1/2cups brown sugar
1/4cup melted butter
3/4cup vegetable oil
1/2 buttermilk (I substituted sour cream)
2cups grated zucchini
1cup chocolate chips
1cup cocoa sifted
2tsp baking soda
1 1/2tsp cinnamon
|This cheese grater is awesome! I received it at my surprise bridal shower at work. It has a measuring cup on the bottom of the grater.|
The How To
One thing I learned from these cupcakes is to not refrigerate unless the recipe states it. The cupcakes straight from the oven were wonderfully moist but after making this mistake a few people found them dry and they were on the crumbly side.
First preheat oven to 350degrees. In a separate bowl mix together the sugar, butter and oil. Beat in eggs, one at a time until well incorporated. Stir in vanilla, buttermilk or sour cream, zucchini and chocolate chips.
|Don't worry the batter will look more appetizing in a sec!|
Bake in the center of the oven for about 35mins (I started checking around 20mins then recheck every 3-5mins til done) Cool on a wire rack. Don't overcook them or you will lose the moist goodness or refrigerate in my case.
|These smelled so good when they were cooking!|
Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting
1/2cup coco powder
Mix cream cheese and butter until will incorporated and fluffy. Mix in powdered sugar one cup at a time. Then add the coco powder. Don't forget to taste test!!
|Can you believe there are people who don't like cream cheese? Man they are seriously missing out!!|
