I had a sudden whim one night, to make chocolate cupcakes! Without much thoughts, I took out my utensils, start whipping up and not long after, the aroma of the chocolate cupcakes filled my kitchen. They looked presentable and taste was just fine, definitely one recipe that I will use again.
Out of the blue, I thought I should try out another recipe which is highly recommended by my ex-colleage. At least for comparison to the common chocolate cupcakes that I have just baked. She met up with me recently and insisted that I should try out this Red Wine Chocolate Cake recipe from Smitten Kitchen. It is by far her most craved for chocolate cake and has sweared by it. Out of curiosity on how amazing can it be and because Ning was with her grandma that night, I decided to give it a go.
This time, I took lesser time than before to bake these treats, hmmmm... the truth of practise makes perfect. Instead of a 9 inch round cake, I divided the batter into 15 cupcakes. The fragrance of red wine together with the bitter sweet valhorna instantly lingered in my mouth, oh my... they were just so heavenly. The fine texture with the softness of the sponge, make it awesome! I can taste the intense flavour of red wine and it kinda makes my tipsy, might not be recommended for kids. Haha.
