Karen has to prepare 120 cup cakes for the Gilmore Park Church Community Meal. She used the Toll House recipe for the chocolate cup cakes which is rich and easy to prepare.
Unfortunately, I did not get a shot of the actual cup cakes. These are the mini cup cakes which Karen made for us to sample.
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2/3 cups baking cocoa
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, softened
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup milk
The ingredients for the recipe above is for making 20 cup cakes which is perfectly fine for home baking. However, since Karen needed 120 cup cakes, we doubled the recipe above and made 3 batches of them. According to Karen, we should not multiply the recipe by too many times as it will change the chemistry of the recipe. This is especially true for baking.
