Which is why I was pretty excited to be accepted to review the new OvenArt Bakeware Silicone Muffin Pan. I am getting this up later then I would have liked, but trying to figure out what I wanted to make in this new muffin pan to test out was the issue for me. I finally found a yummy cupcake recipe in my Taste of Home Comfort Food Diet 2011 and knew that is what I was going to test it out with. As always though, recipe is not mine, but I got it from the above book.
Heavenly Surprise Mini Cupcakes
Yield: 6 dozen
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup flaked coconut
1 cup finely chopped walnuts
1 cup (6 ounces) miniature semisweet chocolate chips
2 cups sugar
1-1/2 cups water
3/4 cup canola oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon white vinegar
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup baking cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1-1/3 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
For filling, in a small bowl, beat the cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg and salt; mix well. Stir in the coconut, walnuts and chocolate chips. Set aside.
For batter, in a large bowl, beat the sugar, water, oil, eggs, vanilla and vinegar until well blended. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt; gradually beat into oil mixture until blended.
Fill paper-lined miniature muffin cups(or silicone) one-third full with the batter. Drop the filling by teaspoonful’s into each muffin cup. Top with additional batter, filling the muffin cups three-fourths full.
Bake at 350º for 12-15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the cake portion of a cupcake comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pants to wire racks to cool completely.
For frosting, in a small saucepan, melt chocolate chips with cream over low heat; stir until blended. Remove from the heat. Cool to room temperature. Frost cupcakes. Refrigerate leftovers.
