Chocolate Cupcakes with White Chocolate Ganache

So I would hear this word "ganache" every now and again, and I had no idea what it meant. Once I *did* learn what it meant, I decided to give it a try.

I decided to try the chocolate cake recipe out of my Fannie Farmer cookbook. It's a fair chocolate cake. It's not too dry and it domes well. I wish is had a stronger chocolate flavor, but in this particular instance, it's not what I was looking for anyway.


Chocolate Cupcakes

1/2 c vegetable oil
1 1/2 c sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 oz unsweetened baker's chocolate, melted
2 eggs, beaten
2 c flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 c milk

Sift together flour, baking powder and salt. In large bowl beat together oil, sugar, vanilla, chocolate, and eggs. Add flour mixture alternately with milk. Fill liners about 3/4 full and bake for 18 minutes at 350 degrees.


For the ganache, I looked to Cupcake Project. The only problem with that was that I didn't have heavy cream anymore. Used it up, what, yesterday? So I made some substitutions.

White Chocolate Ganache

1/4 c white chocolate morsels
1/4 c milk
1 3/4 tbsp unsalted butter
1 tsp flour

Place chocolate in small bowl. Add milk, butter and flour to saucepan and heat until boiling, stirring to mix. Pour over chocolate and stir together until melted and combined. Spread over cupcakes (I actually dipped mine, but tomato tomahto.)

Sadly, there is not enough white chocolate to stand up against the regular chocolate cupcake, and it's completely overshadowed. Next time, less cupcake, more ganache.
