Chocolate Mayo Cupcakes

This is one of my favourite, if not the BEST Baked Sunday Mornings, for reasons that have very little to do with the actual recipe we made. I’m still feeling all sorts of warm fuzzy feelings from this week’s trip to NYC where I got to meet many of the Baked Sunday Mornings crew. It was just the best. So much so that I would probably have passed on this week’s recipe, but I just didn’t want to miss out on visiting everyone’s blogs, now that I’ve met them in real life.

So I know, the mayonnaise. If you have issues with it, or it grosses you out, this is not the recipe for you. The mayo replaces the butter/oil in the recipe, and you can’t taste it at all in the baked cupcake. It was actually pretty soft and hydrated. I don’t think this is going to become my go-to chocolate cupcake recipe, but it’s good to know that in a pinch if I run out of butter, and have mayo in the fridge, I can still make a tasty treat.

Now the frosting is another story: I am obsessed with it. It’s not a cooked frosting like many of the Baked boys’ other recipes, but instead a simple mixture of butter, icing sugar, vanilla and lots of melted dark chocolate. It was heavenly. I brought these to work on Friday for my co-workers and everyone loved them. I think they’re slowly getting used to the fact that I will randomly show up with treats.

So that brings us to the end of the Chocolate section of Baked Elements! Here’s a little recap of what I made and my favourite recipe from this section:

Hooray for sprinkles – these totally need color – so cute. Nice piping also. Glad you had an awesome time in NYC – I’m jealous of how close you are! It was so nice to meet you – I hope we can all do that again sometime soon. :)
