Today's post isn't really a post. I simply made Brownies but turned them into cupcakes. However, I will not post this new recipe I tried out because it wasn't as good as the Chocolate Rum Bownies I made before. Like I said, today's post isn't really a post. ;)
You've got to admit though, anything in cupcake-form looks prettier, no? If you're making Brownie Cupcakes, remember that the batter does not rise like regular cake or muffin batter ... so go ahead and fill up. Also, to all the brownie baking virgins out there - don't overbake. Brownies have a craggy surface with a rich, dense, fudgy interior. When you test with a skewer/toothpick, it should not come out clean. Instead, you should see some moist crumbs sticking to it.
Sunshine on a stalk! Brownie Cupcakes! Valrhona! That's the way life should be ... everyday!
Aside, I think my helper, who has gotten so used to Valrhona, is gonna have a hard time adapting to chocolate-anything when she eventually returns to Indonesia. Reminds me of the time my previous helper rang me when she touched down at Surabaya airport. She practically screeched into the phone, "Ma'm! The car my family rent for me so OLD and got NO AIR-CON!!!"
I could totally imagine the look of bewildered anguish on her face! *giggles*
Anyway, you can find the Chocolate Rum Brownie recipe here if you haven't already tried it. OK, that's it ... I'm outta here! Nothing much to say today. ;)
