Description

Makes 22 cupcakes.

Ingredients

  • Cupcakes
  • 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, finely chopped
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¾ teaspoons baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ½ cup Kahlua
  • 2 tablespoons water, milk, or coffee
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 5 tablespoons butter, softened but still cool
  • ¾ cups brown sugar, packed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • Frosting
  • 2 tablespoons Kahlua
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1½ teaspoons espresso powder
  • pinch salt
  • 3½ to 4 cups confectioners sugar (sifted if lumpy)
  • ⅓ cup (2/3 stick) butter, softened but still cool
  • cocoa nibs or chocolate shavings, for garnish

Directions

  • For the cupcakes, preheat oven to 350° F. Grease or line 22 cups in standard-size muffin tins. Set aside.
  • Melt chocolate in a double boiler or in a bowl set over a pan of simmering water. Set aside to cool slightly.
  • Combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl and set aside.
  • Add Kahlua to a glass measuring cup and then spoon in sour cream until the two ingredients reach the 1-cup line. Stir in water (or milk or coffee) and vanilla extract. Mix well and set aside.
  • In the bowl of a standing electric mixer, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs to the butter mixture, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the chocolate mixture and stir to mix.
  • Alternate adding the flour mixture and sour cream mixture to the batter in two additions. Stir until well combined. Fold in chocolate chips.
  • Fill prepared muffin cups about half full with batter. Bake in preheated oven until firm to the touch and a tester inserted in the center of a cupcake comes out with a just few crumbs clinging to it, about 13 to 15 minutes. Remove from oven and cool in pans.
  • To prepare the frosting, combine Kahlua, milk, espresso powder, and salt in the bowl of a standing electric mixer. Swirl the bowl gently until espresso powder and salt have dissolved.
  • Add 3½ cups of the confectioners sugar and the butter. Mix slowly with the paddle attachment to combine, and then increase speed to medium-high and beat until smooth and creamy. Add additional powdered sugar if needed to achieve a frostable consistency.
  • Pipe frosting atop cooled cupcakes or use a small spatula to add a generous layer of frosting to each cupcake. Garnish with cocoa nibs or chocolate shavings.
