Chocolate-Chocolate Cupcakes

Long time no see, fellow bloggers. It's pretty sad when it takes a few tries to crack the password to your own blog. Anywho, I'm back for a little bit and then I fully intend to disappear again for a few weeks. It's a little thing I like to call CANCUN. YAY! I'm super excited about it!

Moving on to Chocolate-Chocolate Cupcakes......


It looks like a perfectly happy and healthy little cupcake there.......ohhhhh, but it is not. It's an English Tea Muffin in disguise. It is my humble opinion that a cupcake is supposed to be a piece of birthday cake for a girl on the go. If I had a birthday cake that tasted like this I would be severely disappointed and may indeed question my relationship with the person who made it; however, I quickly realized that this "cupcake" tasted exactly like the Cotswold muffins my mother always made when I was growing up. So, as long as thought of it as a tea muffin it was DIVINE and gave me happy food memories. I did substitute milk chocolate for bittersweet chocolate. Primarily because I live out in the sticks and I don't quite have the baking choices you city folk type have. That makes me laugh because I am a total city transplant.

I hereby dedicate this blog entry to my absolute favorite chocolate cupcake, Senator Barack Obama.

Ah Julie, leave it to you to disappear for weeks, come back just long enough to drop a political bomb on your food blog, and then leave for Cancun. Crazy girl. I'm glad you were able to trick yourself into liking these cupcakes! That's a good life skill (convincing yourself that you like something by pretending that it's something else).

Your cupcakes were delicious. I know because I taste tested them! You dawg, going to Cancun, and leaving the rest of us here to do what - BAKE, hold down the fort, work? Yikes. That is some serious selfishness going on I think. Seriously, I hope you have a great time on your trip! Glad you finally got around to blogging again.
