I had this plan to make Red Velvet cupcakes this week. I took it for granted that I had all the ingredients, which was probably pretty silly on my part. The recipe I was making made 16 to 20 cupcakes, and I didn’t really want that many, so I decided to half it. I promptly forgot this. See! I have all the makings for a disaster! It’s the perfect storm!
So, with this recipe, I created the Chocolate Mistake cupcakes.
1 stick of butter, room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp vinegar (that was also a mistake)
Bake for about 20 minutes at 350 degrees.
As a person who isn’t a fan of chocolate, I found these to be reasonably delightful. Not too sweet, and very soft. They had a slightly crispy crust on them that was sort of like angel food, which I love. I swirled a little pre-made cream cheese frosting on them, topped them with sprinkles and that was that!
