The batter looked super chocolaty and was satiny smooth.
- Hubby and I enjoyed these cupcakes. They're tender, with lots of chocolate flavor (a little too chocolaty for hubby), although we found them to be a tad dry. This surprised me a bit because I had substituted 2 Tbsp of butter with canola oil to avoid just that. Oh well... they're still super tasty.
- To enhance the chocolate flavor, I added 1 tsp of instant espresso powder by Mediaglia d'Oro.
- Since I planned on taking these cupcakes to work, I made them slightly smaller and ended with 20 instead of 16.
