First TWD

This is my first post for the Tuesdays with Dorie group. This weeks assignment was chocolate-chocolate cupcakes with a chocolate glaze icing. I love chocolate so I was really exicited to start with this recipe.

The recipe called for cocoa and melted bittersweet chocolate. This gave them a wonderful, almost crispy, texture that was different from the chocolate cupcakes that I have made. Adding buttermilk to the mixture kept it from becoming too dry.

The glaze is also made with bitterswet chocotate. If you like dark chocoate, and I do, this ganache-like topping is for you. My family would have liked something a little sweeter. The next time I might use a chocolate buttercream.
