Toblerone Cupcakes

22 October 2010

I do not like baking cupcakes. And there is a reason for that, which is that umm, I am not pretty good at baking them. I have tried different recipes through the years, but I just can not get them right. It is the same old result, right in the middle of the tree; not bad, not the best, but good in taste and fully edible. My little sister always ask me to bake chocolate chip cup cakes and I am always like "nooo, not cupcakes! Anything else". So everytime I actually bakes cupcakes now, I try a different recipe everytime to see if there is something wrong with me or the cupcake recipes.

So, today as I was craving for something sweet for my evening tea I decided to make cupcakes. They are easy to make and they are ready in few minutes, the two only plus reasons for cupcakes in my book. My sister bought cupcake forms that were really high on the sides and with a stronger quality and her cupcake turned really delicious, even the texture was perfect. So maybe I should invest in some good cupcake forms to check the difference  next time. 
I tried to bake american chocolate muffins and they turned out great both in taste and texture, but I guess there is a difference in cupcakes and muffins. Actually I can remember the first time I tried this chocolate chip cupcakes recipe from Foodbeam, they turned out just as store-bought. Everyone told me that! But the next times I tried to bake them again, I never got the same perfect result.

This recipe I used today is from an old recipe booklet, the small ones that used to follow the home magazine back in time. My mom told me this recipe is quite good so this is the second time I tried it today. Last time I was lucky enough to mess with the recipe as I totally misunderstood what it said. This time I followed it right and I added som crushed toblerone chocolate in half of the cupcakes and in the rest half I did put sugar and cinnamon coated apple bites and some grated marzipan. The apple ones turned out really moist and soft and had a great taste while the toblerone ones were a bit dryer in texture, but they tasted good.

I would be really thankful if anyone out there has a great cupcakes recipe which is perfect would share it!
