German Chocolate Cupcakes with Coconut Pecan Frosting

Saturday, March 7, 2009

I made these today and OH. MY. They are divine. It would be a sin NOT to share the recipe with my bloggy friends.


German Chocolate Cupcakes
Makes 30 cupcakes

* 1/2 C hot water
* 4 oz unsweetened Baker’s Chocolate
* 1 C butter, room temperature
* 2 1/2 C sugar
* 4 eggs
* 2 1/4 C flour
* 1 t baking soda
* 1/2 t salt
* 1 C buttermilk
* 1 t vanilla extract

1. In a small saucepan over low heat, melt the chocolate in the water and then remove from heat immediately and set aside.
2. In a large mixer bowl, cream the butter and sugar until fluffy.
3. Add the eggs one at a time, making sure to beat well in between each addition.
4. Add the remaining ingredients and blend at low speed until combined.
5. Fill cupcake liners 3/4 full.
6. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until the top bounces back when touched.

Coconut Pecan Frosting

* 1 cup evaporated milk
* 1 cup white sugar
* 3 egg yolks
* 1/2 cup butter
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 1 1/2 cups flaked coconut
* 1 cup chopped pecans

1. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine milk, sugar, egg yolks, butter and vanilla. Cook, stirring frequently, until thickened. Remove from heat and stir in coconut and pecans. (I stirred with a wire whisk almost constantly so I wouldn't end up with scrambled eggs in my frosting. Once it got to a boil I let it boil about 5 minutes and then emptied it into a bowl and added the pecans and coconut. Then let it cool fully before icing.)
