hello, remember me? well i've been feeling way under the weather for several weeks now so there hasn't been much baking happening over here. i finally forced myself back into the kitchen to make these browned butter cupcakes with chocolate buttercream that i've been dying to make for a couple of months now.
i had some seriously freaky eggs that kind of ruined these cupcakes. the recipe calls for 4 eggs and the first 3 eggs i cracked into the bowl had double yolks. i didn't know what to do! i ended up not putting the 4th egg in so i had 6 yolks and only 3 egg whites. it made the cupcakes more muffin like than i would have liked but the flavor was still good. how did i end up with so many sets of twins? totally weird! i used ghiradelli semi-sweet chocolate for the frosting and it was way delicious. i don't know if i'll be making these cupcakes again but i will definitely hang onto that chocolate buttercream recipe.
because i've been feeling so crappy, it was quite a feat that i even managed to bake anything edible but pictures of the cupcakes simply did not happen. sorry, folks.
