With that said, I would like to introduce the next recipe....... drumroll please...... party.gif

Salted caramel chocolate cupcakes
Cupcakes
1 & 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder
1 & 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 & 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
3/4 cup buttermilk
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup warm water
sea salt, for garnish
Preheat oven to 350°. Line muffin pans with paper liners.

Whisk together flour, cocoa, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add eggs, buttermilk, oil, vanilla, and water. mix on low speed, mix until smooth.

Fill muffin pans about 2/3 full. Bake about 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in pans on wire racks about 10 minutes. Remove cupcakes to wire racks to let cool completely.


Salted Caramel Filling
2 & 1/2 cups sugar
2/3 cup water
1 tablespoon light corn syrup
3/4 cup heavy cream
2 & 1/2 teaspoons sea salt
Heat sugar, water, and corn syrup in a heavy saucepan over high heat. Stir occasionally until syrup is clear. Attach a candy thermometer to side of pan. Stop stirring, and cook until syrup comes to a boil, washing down sides of pan with a wet pastry brush as needed.

Boil, gently swirling pan occasionally, until mixture is caramelized and temperature just reaches 360°.

Remove from heat. Slowly pour in cream and stir with a wooden spoon until smooth. Stir in sea salt. Use immediately. If caramel begins to harden, reheat gently until pourable.

Use a paring knife, cut a cone-shaped piece, about 1/2-inch deep, from the center of each cupcake. Spoon 1-2 teaspoons of warm filling into each cupcake. Sprinkle a pinch of sea salt over filling.

Dark Chocolate Frosting
1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder
1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon boiling water
2 & 1/4 cups unsalted butter, room temperature
3/4 cup confectioners sugar, sifted
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 & 1/2 pounds semi-sweet chocolate, melted and cooled
Combine cocoa and boiling water. Stir until cocoa has dissolved.

Using an electric mixer on medium-high speed, beat butter, confectioners sugar, and salt until pale and fluffy. Reduce speed to low and add melted and cooled chocolate. Beat until combined. Beat in cocoa mixture.

Frost cupcakes and then garnish with a pinch of sea salt.

I was reading on the previous thread and I am confused as to the rules of the group and how recipe submissions go... I spend a lot of time searching for good recipes and have come up with quite a few so how do I go about submitting them? or one of them?? I have a great fall one!

I think 2 weeks is fair, because some people get really busy and get left behind.

The person who has the current submission will choose the next person to submit a recipe based on who shows interest in doing it. luvbuttercream, if you express your interest to jess who is doing this month, that's how we're handling it!

Anyone who is new...YES please, join us, jump right in! You bake the recipe the way it's written and tell us your results. Did you like it, would you change something about it, what was good, what wasn't.

Also, please remember, always constructive criticisms. And bear in mind that sometimes people are choosing a recipe they found somewhere, but haven't actually used yet, (that happened to me... I picked a savory recipe that sounded awesome and it was cr@p icon_redface.gif ) so please don't think the poster just intentionally gave you a poo-ish recipe! icon_lol.gif

Actually what happens is that the next person will start a new thread and we'll move on to the next recipe, but at any time you can come back to the previous threads and try any of our past recipes. We never actually 'close' them. Sometimes people get so busy, they wait until they get a break, then go back and do the last 3 threads all at once. No problem with that. We're always up for feedback!

Thanks Jess for starting this up again. The recipe sounds amazing! Just let us know how long you want to give us to try it out. To choose the next submitter you can have everyone that wants to pm you and you can pick a number between 1 and 100 or something like that to make it easy to pick.
Can't wait to try all the wonderful recipes!

This sounds awesome! Are you going to repost the rules or should we all go and review the first link you provided?
