I don’t know if you remember when I wrote a while back that I really wanted to find a good cupcake recipe. Well last week, my sisters got creative and used our brownie recipe for cupcakes!
So these are brownie cupcakes!
Our brownie recipe is such a big hit in our family that we use it in different ways and it always turns out delicious!
Many thanks to my sisters who made these cupcakes and surprised me with them when I came home on Saturday. Isn’t that a nice surprise?
Just look for my Black Forest Brownies recipe and make it in cupcake pans instead of a regular pan.
Here is the frosting recipe…
5 TBSP. Flour
1 cup Milk
1 tsp. Vanilla
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
In a small saucepan, whisk flour into milk and heat, stirring constantly, until it thickens. You want it to be very thick, thicker than cake mix, more like a brownie mix is. Remove from heat and let it cool to room temperature. (If I’m in a hurry, I place the saucepan over ice in the sink for about 10 minutes or so until the mixture cools.) It must be completely cool before you use it in the next step. Stir in vanilla.
While the mixture is cooling, cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. You don’t want any sugar graininess left. Then add the completely cooled milk/flour/vanilla mixture and beat the living daylights out of it. If it looks separated, you haven’t beaten it enough! Beat it until it all combines and resembles whipped cream.
