Hostess Cupcakes
1/2 c Plus 2 tbsp Flour
2 1/2 tb Cocoa powder
3/4 ts Baking soda
1/4 ts Salt
1/2 c Sugar
1/2 c Water
3 tb Vegetable oil
1 1/2 ts Distilled white vinegar
1 ts Vanilla extract
1 c Heavy whipping cream
6 oz Finely chopped white chocolate
3 oz Finely chopped bittersweet chocolate
3 tb Boiling water
1 tb Egg white, at room temperature
1 pinch cream of tartar
1/2 c Plus 2 to 3 tbsp confectioner's sugar
Make the cupcakes:
1. Position a rack in the center and preheat oven to 325F. Lightly
butter twenty−four 1−3/4" x 3/4" (1−oz) muffin of biscuit cups.
2. Into a medium bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa, baking soda,
and salt. Mix in the sugar. Make a well in the center. Whisk in the
water, oil, vinegar, and vanilla. Blend until smooth. (The batter
will be very thin.)
3. Spoon the batter into the prepared cups. Bake until a cake tester
inserted into the center of one of the cupcakes comes out clean,
about 12 to 14 minutes. Cool the cupcakes in the pans on a wire rack
for 5 minutes. Remove the cupcakes from the pans and finish cooling
on the rack.
