Chocolate Blackout Cupcakes
This recipe goes back to New York City during WW11 when the cities performed blackouts when ships sailed from the harbor so there silhouttes could not be spotted by enemy planes. This cake popularized by Ebinger's Bakery in New York, is filled and frosted with a rich extra chocolatey pudding, then topped with cake crumbs. The other unusual thing about this cake is that the batter is brought together completely in a saucepan starting with cooking the cocoa in butter to bring out a richer flavor and color.
Since cupcakes are a "contained indulgence" , as well as the latest cake fashion
I wanted to keep you in style and also give you a portioned chocolate fix.
The chocolate explosion when you bite into the rich but not too sweet pudding center will enchant you as well as the crunchy chocolate wafer topping.
