Mocha Cupcakes with Candy Corn Glaze
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup plus 2 Tablespoons cocoa
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup strong black coffee
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Put all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Stir to wet dry ingredients. Beat on medium speed for 3 to 4 minutes to incorporate a bit of air. Those bubbles make your cake ever so light!
Pour batter into cupcake liners and bake at 350 ° for 10 to 15 minutes and a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
- 1 cup candy corn plus a few for decoration
- 2 Tablespoons heavy cream
- chopped nuts (optional)
Melt candy corn with cream over low-medium heat, stirring constantly until melted. Cool slightly and spread on cooled cupcakes. Add candy corn pieces or nuts if desired. Serve immediately or refrigerate. The glaze will be affected by room temperature and humidity, so adjust storage accordingly.
