Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs, beaten lightly
  • 2 ounces bittersweet chocolate, melted
  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup Dutch-processed cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 3 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon rosewater, or to taste
  • Shredded coconut, toasted, as garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
     
  2. Line 1/2-cup muffin tins with paper muffin cups.
     
  3. In a bowl with an electric mixer, cream the butter, add the sugar, and beat the mixture until it is light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs a little at a time, then add the chocolate, and continue to beat the mixture, scraping down the sides of the bowl, until combined well.
     
  4. Into a bowl, sift the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt.
     
  5. In a small bowl, whisk the buttermilk with the vanilla. Add half the dry ingredients to the butter mixture, gently stirring to combine. Stir in the milk mixture and the remaining dry ingredients until just combined.
     
  6. Divide batter among the lined muffin tins, filling each cup 2/3 full, and bake for 20 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted in the centers comes out clean. Cool cupcakes in the pan for 5 minutes. Transfer to racks to cool completely.
     
  7. Chill, loosely wrapped in plastic. Cupcakes may be prepared a day ahead.

    For frosting:

    In a bowl with an electric mixer, beat the butter until it is light. Sift the confectioners' sugar onto a piece of waxed paper. With the mixer running add the confectioners' sugar a little at a time until combined well. Beat in the milk and continue to beat until light and fluffy. Beat in the rosewater. Frost the cupcakes and garnish with the coconut.

This cup cake recipe sounds nice. I especially like cupcakes made with buttermilk. I am also intrigued with the rose frosting. Rosewater would be an interesting addition, I expected the recipe to use an extract. I will have to see how this turns out. I have never added milk to my butter icing before either. I'm wondering if it will be too loose. Has anyone made this and how did the icing turn out?
