Mexican Chocolate Sourdough Cupcakes
Mexican hot chocolate is a favorite treat around here, as is a delicious cake so what’s better than combing them? Sourdough cupcakes! In Mexico it’s hard to find a candy that doesn’t have chili in it. My lovely taste testers also known as my oldest girls liked this twist on chocolate cupcakes. They advised me on each batch as they came out of the toaster oven, telling me if they needed more a “kick”. The last batch was the winner. This recipe makes great cupcakes or cake. Frosted or plain both are delicious. (Frosting recipe to come soon.)
