The recipe for the cake batter is adapted from Martha Stewart. It's one of the best recipes for devil's food cake I've tried recently. Martha Stewart really knows her stuff.
The cake had a wonderful chocolate flavor. There are two chocolates in the batter: malted chocolate and Dutch-processed cocoa. The combination really gave the cake a deep chocolate flavor.
The addition of malted chocolate enhanced the chocolate and also added moisture. The sour cream also contributed to the moisture and tenderness. The cake was moist and not mushy at all. It held together really well when sliced.
Malted Chocolate Cupcakes
adapted from Martha Stewart CupcakesMakes about 28
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder or reg. unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 teas baking soda
1/2 teas salt
1 cup milk
1 1/4 cups malted milk powder - I used MILO
1 cup vegetable oil
3 large eggs, at room temperature
1 cup sour cream, at room temperature
1 teas vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350F. Line standard muffin tins with paper liners. Whisk together flour, cocoa, both sugars, baking soda and salt. In another bowl, whisk together milk and malted milk powder until powder is dissolved.
With an electric mixer on medium-high speed, beat flour mixture, milk mixture and oil until combined. Add eggs, one at a time, beating until each is incorporated, scraping down sides of bowl as needed. Add sour cream and vanilla, and beat just until combined.
Divide batter evenly among lined cups, filling each halfway. Bake, rotating tins halfway through, until a cake tester inserted in centers comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Cupcakes can be stored up to 3 days at room temperature, or frozen up to 2 months in airtight containers.
