Chocolate & peanut butter mousse cupcakes.

Sunday, 2 October 2011

I know my blog has been really heavily fashion-based thus far - I'm just such a pedant when it comes to my own food photography and I want everything to be perfect! For now, I'm willing to concede until I work out how to use a photo editing program (I told you I was an amateur!).

This is a recipe I constantly return to (find it here). The melange of savoury and sweet tones imparts a really addictive morish taste that makes it a ubiquitous palate pleaser.

I only make a few changes:
- I use self-raising flour instead of their plain flour/bicarb combination
- To elevate the decadence of this cupcake, I replace the sour cream with normal heavy whipping cream
- For a smoother frosting that's delightful to pipe, I mix everything together instead of whipping the cream first. However, if you prefer a more mousse-like effect then whipping the cream will achieve this texture. Either way, it is truly delectable!

Enjoy! <3 

Love, Mandy. xx


  1. Oooh, will definitely have to try the cupcake recipe at some point! Unfortunately I'll have to skip the peanut butter frosting unless I want to take a trip to the hospital, hehe...

  2. Oh no! That would definitely be an anaphylactic nightmare. Haha, reminds me of the time when you told me that you're 'allergic to all nuts except doughnuts'. Makes me laugh every time!

    The chocolate base is still delicious though!

    Mwah, xx

  3. Yum, looks delicious Mandy!

    Much love from Thessy & Yiota :)
