Chocolate cupcakes / Cokoladne mini tortice

I admit it, today I have a chocolate hangover. Lately, I am much more active and honestly .. I wasn’t  really planning on baking something sweet. But time arrived for me to organize a new giveaway (only for Slovenian readers, sorry). For one day I stopped my sugar break with these devilish chocolate cupcakes that are so innocently posing for my camera.  Priznam, danes imam čokoladnega mačka. Zadnje čase sem veliko bolj aktivna in iskreno..nisem ravno planirala peke česa sladkega. Potem pa je tako naneslo, da je prišel čas za nov giveaway. Za en dan sem prekinila sladkorno pavzo s temi vražjimi čokoladnimi mini torticami, ki so tako nedolžno pozirale mojemu fotoaparatu. 
I left out the coffee-Gasper doesn’t like desserts with coffee and Chambord liqueur-too expensive drops for me, from the original recipe, but nevertheless these cupcakes turned out really tasty. Perhaps the only regret I have is using bitter chocolate for frosting, because I'm not really a fan (I'm still loyal to milky, sweet chocolate!). Ample serving of chocolate on top made me crave something that is opposite, and so I used a fork to scoop some of the cupcake and vanilla ice cream at the same time. Perfection.

With love, Neja
Iz originalnega recepta sem črtala kavo-Gašper ne mara v sladicah in Chambord liker-predraga kapljica pa so kljub temu dobro izpadle. Morda si edino želim, da ne bi uporabila grenke čokolade za frosting, ker nisem ravno fen (še vedno sem zvesta mlečni!). Obilna porcija čokolade na vrhu je potrebovala protiutež in tako sem kar z vilico zarila v ta roza, s pikicami posut papirnat modelček in zraven zajela vanilin sladoled. Perfekcija.

Z ljubeznijo, Neja

Tako sem vesela, da lahko najavim nov giveaway!

Recipe adapted from: My baking addiction

The Recipe

Ingredients:

For the cupcakes
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups sugar
3/4 cups good cocoa powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 cup buttermilk, shaken
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 large eggs, at room temperature
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

For the frosting
18 ounces good quality semi sweet or bittersweet chocolate; chopped
1 ½ cups heavy cream

The process

For the cupcakes
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line standard muffin tins with paper liners; set aside.
2. Sift the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, and salt into the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment and mix on low speed until combined. In another bowl, combine the buttermilk, oil, eggs, and vanilla. With the mixer on low speed, slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry.
3. Using a large scoop, distribute the batter between 24 muffin wells, filling each well 2/3 full. Bake for 18 to 22 minutes, or until a cake tester comes out clean. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes, then remove to a cooling rack and cool completely.

For the frosting
1. Place chocolate in a large heat safe bowl. Set aside.

2. In a medium saucepan, heat heavy cream over medium heat until it just begins to boil. DO NOT walk away from the stove. The cream could boil over and you will be with a big mess to clean up.

3. Immediately pour hot cream over chocolate and let it sit for five minutes.

4. Begin stirring the cream with a wooden spoon or whisk starting in the center of the bowl and working your way outward. As you stir, you will see the cream and chocolate come together.

5. Allow ganache to cool completely and set up before piping (about two hours). You can also place the bowl into the refrigerator for about an hour, just be careful to keep checking on it so it doesn’t get too firm.

6. Pipe ganache onto cupcakes.
Sestavine:

Za tortice
219g večnamenske moke
400g sladkorja
118g kakava v prahu
2 žlički sode bikarbone
1 žlička pecilnega praška
1 žlička soli
490g pinjenca, pretresenega
112g rastlinskega olja
2 veliki jajci, sobne temperature
2 žlički vanilijevega ekstrakta

Za glazuro

510g čokolade, sesekljane
360g sladke smetane

Postopek

Za tortice
1. Pečico segrejte na 180°C. V pekač za peko mafinov položite papirčke za mafine

2. V posodo presejte moko, sladkor, kakav, sodo bikarbono. Vse skupaj dobro premešamo. V drugi skledi zmešajte pinjenec, olje, jajca in vanilijo. Suhim sestavinam počasi dodajamo mokre in mešamo z električnim mešalnikom.

3. Papirčke do 2/3 napolnimo z maso in pečemo 18 do 22 minut, pustimo, da se ohladijo.

Za glazuro
1. Čokolado sesekljajte in prestavite v posodo.

2. Na srednje močnem ognju segrejte sladko smetano, stalno mešajte in odstavite tik preden hoče zavreti.

3. Vročo smetano takoj prelijte čez čokolado.

4. Počasi mešajte, toliko časa, da se cela čokolada stopi.

5. Ganaš pustite zunaj 2 uri, da se strdi ali postavite v hladilnik za eno uro, vendar stalno preverjajte, da se ne bo preveč strdilo.

6. Tortice okrasite z ganašem.
