So, I have made the traditional German Chocolate Cake before, which is typically a 3 layer cake. I was wanting to make it as cupcakes for Father's Day (its his favorite cake) and I wondered if I could make it as cupcakes?!?!
I have been searching the internet for just one recipe that would tell me I could do that and how to do it, (like timing and all that) Cause the regular recipe says to lay wax paper at the bottom of the cake pans...
Does anyone know how this could work? Or has anyone tried this? I know this is a particularly special cake, so I just wondered if anyone had tried it as a cupcake, and how it came out.
Thanks soooo much! You all are always so helpful!
I think it should work although I have not tried it myself. The cupcake liners should take the place of lining the cake pans. Most cake recipes transfer to cupcakes just fine.
I've done German Chocolate cupcakes many times.... Just inject some of the coconut pecan icing into the cupcake and some on top.
Very very simple
I have made them many times they are very good.
Agreed... easy and a favorite. Just make your regular batter that you like. Fill one cupcake liner 2/3 full and one a scant 3/4 full. Check for the rise since many scratch cupcakes rise differently. As soon as you know how high to fill, fill the others and bake.
yes its actually easier than it seems! just bake up your normal chocolate batter in cupcake form (2/3 full), make the coconut/pecan icing in a separate container, and when the cupcakes are done let them cool. i normally inject the cupcakes with chocolate buttercream and then top with the coconut/pecan icing, but i'm sure i'd work just as well the other way around
Thank you so much! Every reply was very helpful! I'm excited to try it out!
