Yay! This month Martha Stewart's Cupcake Club pick is mine! I am super excited about this (in case you couldn't tell) because, while I have enjoyed making all the different cupcakes, sometimes it is fun to make something I choose myself. And obviously, if I was going to choose something, it was going to be chocolate.
Anyway, enough about that. Welcome to the Baking Sisters if you are visiting us for the first time. We hope you'll stay, look around and read some posts by Sarah, who is really the funniest of the Baking Sisters. I also hope that, if you baked along with me, you enjoyed these cupcakes. I tried to pick something that would be delicious, but not to difficult to make. These cupcakes really fit the bill. They were light and fluffy (from the addition of whipped egg whites) and had little bursts of chocolate from the chips.
The only thing I didn't love about these was the frosting. Even though I reduced the butter, I still thought it was too buttery and heavy in comparison to the lightness of the cupcakes. I think I would either do these with a chocolate glaze or a lighter chocolate frosting.
You can find the recipe here, with chocolate chip frosting. Maybe I'll have to try that next time.
Thanks so much for baking along with me! I have had a fantastic time being part of this group and getting to see everyone's blogs and I look forward to making more yummy treats with all of you in the coming months.
