I used the chocolate cupcake recipe found in the Scharffenberger Essence of Chocolate cookbook. I was very impressed — probably the best chocolate cupcake I’ve made so far. Although I’m usually not a huge fan of buttercream, I decided that since it was going to be for mini-cupcakes it’d be okay. I added about 2 teaspoons (maybe a touch more) of chai tea spice powder and a pinch of cinnamon and was very pleased with the results. The decor was just punched out fondant with those metal ball things. (ew for taste but very pretty and fun!)

The cupcake recipe:
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 unsweetened cocoa powder
10 Tb (5 oz) unsalted butter at room temp.
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 large egg
3/4 cup whole milk

stir flour and cocoa powder and set aside. in mixer blend butter, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt for about 5 minutes or until pale and fluffy. add egg and blend until incorporated. add flour mixture and milk alternately. fill muffin cups 2/3 full and bake 15-20 min. at 350 degrees.

The chai spice buttercream recipe can be found here:…
but instead of making a spice mix I used the kashmiri chai tea mix from malabar trading. GREAT STUFF.
