This time around it was Mexican Dark Chocolate cupcakes. They were created for a Mexican potluck dinner on Sunday night with inspiration from a cake seen on Serious Eats, a recipe in Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World, and a cake in Vegetarian Times.
Using the base chocolate cupcake recipe in VCTOTW, I added cayenne pepper and cinnamon to the cake batter. Cupcakes were topped with vanilla buttercream frosting, dusted with cinnamon, and a small piece of dark chocolate with chili peppers was placed on top.
These came together so quick and tasted great. Perfect cupcake texture and the frosting was cinnamony-sweet.
