    Cupcakes

    So I have a thing for cupcakes :)

    Can anybody share their favorite recipe, topping?

    I always like to try new things.

    My favorites at the moment are chocolate with cinnamon frosting...Yum

    I just found this basic recipe, from Amy Sedaris' new book:

    Amy Sedaris' Cupcakes

    1 sticks of unsalted butter
    1 cups of sugar
    Beat well, then add:

    2 large eggs
    2 Teaspoons of pure vanilla
    teaspoon of salt
    2 teaspoons of baking powder
    2 cups of flour
    1 cups of milk

    Beat well, fill cups, and bake at 375 degrees for 18-20 minutes. You should get 24. I get 18, 'cause I'm doing something wrong.

    Frosting
    1 box of Domino confectionary sugar
    cup half-and-half
    1 teaspoon of pure vanilla

    (Note from webmaster: I like to add a stick of unsalted butter to the frosting. It makes a rich buttercream, which tastes exactly like the buttercream frosting on the cupcakes that I bought from Amy a couple years ago. While I haven't tried it myself yet, I've heard that the recipe without butter makes a thinner, more glaze-like icing.)

    Whip for a while, color if you want.

    Ooh, I love those little things! I bet they would be super tasty on carrot cake cupcakes.

    Here's a delightfully delicious recipe for chocolate ganache topped cupcakes from Nigella Lawson...

    the cupcakes:
    3/4 c. self-rising flour
    1/2 c. soft unsalted butter
    7 tablespoons sugar
    2 eggs
    1-2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    a few tablespoons whole milk

    (**for chocolate cupcakes, take out a tablespoon of flour after measuring and replace with the same amount of cocoa**)

    *heat oven to 400F
    *combine all ingredients except milk with electric mixer
    *pour in milk and mix until completely smooth
    *pour batter evenly into muffin pan lined with paper or foil cups
    *cook for 15-20 min. and when done, cool on wire rack

    the ganache:
    7 oz. bittersweet chocolate chopped (with minimum of 70% cocoa solids)
    3/4 c. plus 2 tablespoons heavy cream

    *put ingredients in saucepan and cook until melted, over low heat
    *whisk with mixer until thick and glossy
    *spoon and smooth over cupcakes, let stand for a few then decorate!

    I am also a lover of cakes. My favorite local bakery is Magpie's. Their motto is "All butter, all the time."

    Oooo, thanks for those recipes, keep them coming. I love adding to my recipe file.

    I love the idea of the coated indian fennel seeds. I will have to keep a look out for those.

    i like plain chocolate cupcakes with a big dollop of lightly sweetened, vanilla flavored whipped cream instead of frosting, and a couple of raspberries on top.

    Chockylit has a really great cupcake blog. Some of her recipes are a lot of work, but they're worth it. I made the Thai Iced Tea cupcakes awhile back and they were really tasty.

    Not a recipe, but my friend William always said he wanted to open up a cupcake shop. He went back to Scotland before he could bake me any cupcakes :(

    Once we hoofed it from Brooklyn Heights to the West Village in search of a cupcake store, and along the way we had ice cream and Thai sandwiches!

    Do you live in the Heights? There are several bakeries in this 'hood that I love. Sweet Melissa's and Court St Bakery (both on Court below Atlantic). My absolute FAVORITE bakery is Baked in Red Hook. They have a recipe for a dark chocolate cupcake with chocolate frosting and Hawaiian sea salt that is abso fucking lutely to die for. I work on the UES, and the bakery Two Little Red Hens (another location in the Slope) has amazing stuff.

    YUM!
