As usual it's midnight and I just got done with a major Valentine's Day baking session. My man is snoring along with my son on the couch and refuses to go upstairs..yikes. These cuties are made of my light & airy devil's food cake & whipped cream icing under the snow white round sprinkles. They were so moist it is insane.
Here is the recipe:
Ingredients, makes 24 cupcakes:9 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder 1½ cups cake flour (not self-rising) ½ teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon baking soda ¼ teaspoon baking powder 4 ounces (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature 1½ cups granulated sugar 2 large eggs, ½ cup strong coffee (or water) ½ cup whole milk
mix together the cocoa powder, cake flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder in a bowl.
next, In electric mixer beat together the butter and sugar about 5 minutes until smooth and creamy. Add the eggs one at a time,then add coffee and milk. Then slowly pour in the dry ingredients into the butter/sugar mixture
Pour into greased cupcake tin at for 19-22 minutes at until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool completely before frosting.
