Chocolate Cabby Cupcake Recipe

In the meantime, here is a recipe:-) I have had a lot of requests for the recipe for my Iron Cupcake: Milwaukee entry. I am not one to disappoint my adoring public, so, here it is in all its glory:-)

Chocolate Caddy Cupcake

For the Cupcake:
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
12 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 tsp baking powder
2 1/4 cups flour
1/2 cup Cabernet wine
4 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

For Frosting:
1 container of ready-made chocolate cheesecake

For Sauce:
1/2 pt. raspberries, plus 24 more for garnish
1/2 cup Cabernet wine
1/4 cup sugar

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In large bowl, mix butter, sugar and eggs until smooth and creamy. Add vanilla and chocolate chips and mix well.

2. In a small bowl, mix baking powder and flour. Add to creamed mixture. Add wine and cocoa and mix well. Bake for 30 minutes.

3. While the cupcakes are baking, make the sauce. Bring all ingredients to a boil. Strain and cool.

4. To assemble, frost cupcakes with the frosting when they are completely cooled. Top with extra raspberries and then the sauce. Enjoy.

Makes 24 cupcakes
