|Key words:||pussy, cupcakes, Cookoff, chocolate||Category:||Desserts|
3 c cake flour
2/3 c cocoa
2 tsp baking soda
2 c sugar
1 tsp salt
2 c coconut milk
2 c + 2 Tbsp veg oil, or butter or margarine
1 Tbsp vanilla
2 Tbsp vinegar
2 oz Dagoba's Spicy Xocolatl Dark Chocolate Bar
Coconut Cream Cheese filling:
12 oz cream cheese - room temp
1/2 c sugar
1 c sweetened coconut
1/2 tsp almond flavoring
pink food coloring
shades of toasted coconut
|Preparation:||Coconut Cream Cheese filling:
Beat together till smooth. Pop the filling into the refigerator to firm up slightly.
Mix up all these ingredients till smooth. Don't worry about overmixing. Batter will be quite liquid if vegetable oil is used as the fat.
Grate into the chocolate batter 2 oz of Dagoba's spicy Xocolatl dark chocolate bar. This is a wonderful chocolate that has a slight bite of chili peppers and little crunchy bits of cocoa nib. If this can't be found, use a good dark 2 oz chocolate bar and just add the slightest pinch of your favorite chili powder, or cayenne to your chocolate batter.
Put paper liners in muffin tins. Fill each with 2 Tbsp of chocolate batter. Top with a generous 1 Tbsp blob of filling, and top with more chocolate batter. Fill the cupcake wrappers 2/3 of the way full.
Pop into a 350F oven for 25 minutes or until a toothpick tester comes out clean.
Let cupcakes cool completely and now contemplate your top decorations.
The key here is pink food coloring, marzipan dough, shades of toasted coconut, a couple simple sculpture tools, some vegetable oil, and a patient partner to tell you when you've got things right.
