Yellow Cupcakes with Chocolate Ganache Frosting
BakeTime: 24 minutes
Cool Time: 45 min
Make Again: No
Recipe Source: Cook's Illustrated (January 2003)
Prep: 20 minutes
I don't know what happened, and why these didn't taste great. I really think I followed the recipe ok, but they tasted off to me. I don't love cake, so I'm not the best judge, but the group didn't care for them either. The 5 year old who these were for seemed to like it well enough, but I think I can do better. I'll try a different recipe next time.
The frosting was good, and they turned out so pretty.
I had leftover frosting and turned it into some hot fudge by adding a large squirt of corn syrup and bringing to a boil. That turned out great.
