Brownie Cupcakes

The allure of the cupcake has gone beyond children’s party fare. All the world, it seems, has a passion for cupcakes these days. Cupcake bakeries are opening across the country. Cookbooks devoted to the art of the cupcake are turning up in bookstores.

When a cupcake crosses with a brownie, a satisfying, deep chocolate flavor is presented in the form of a little cake. Brownie cupcakes make a deliciously dense cake, especially tasty with a sweet addition of natural raisins. The recipe comes together quickly in a single pot on the stove top, a great option for quick cleanups.

Top the cupcakes with a sprinkling of powdered sugar or a drizzle of glaze, excellent for lunchboxes. For the full cupcake effect, traditional butter cream frosting dresses up the brownie cupcakes for a party.

3 oz. (3 squares) unsweetened chocolate
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup Sun-Maid Natural Raisins
Dash of salt
2 to 3 tablespoons milk

For buttercream frosting
1 stick (8-oz.) butter, softened
1 box (16-oz.) powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Heat oven to 350°F. Grease or line 12 (23/4-inch) muffin cups with paper baking cups.

In large saucepan, over very low heat, combine chocolate and butter; heat just until melted, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Stir in sugar; blend well.

Blend in eggs and vanilla. Stir in flour, walnuts and raisins. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups, filling almost full.

Bake at 350°F. for 30 minutes. Cool on wire rack. Sprinkle with powdered sugar or frost as desired. Makes 12 cupcakes.

Making the frosting
In small mixing bowl, combine first four ingredients and 2 tablespoons of milk. With electric mixer, combine on low until blended. Continue to beat on high until fluffy, adding additional milk as needed for spreading consistency.

    Thanks for your posting on this weblog. From my experience, often times softening right up a photograph might provide the digital photographer with an amount of an artsy flare. Oftentimes however, the soft clouds isn’t what exactly you had in mind and can quite often spoil a normally good image, especially if you intend on enlarging this.
