What can be better than a chocolate Cake? Chocolate cupcakes!
Why? Because it's personal and you don't have to share it with anyone! 😉
The cupcake originates in 1796, when in the recipe for chocolate cake in the American cookbook of Amelia Simmons, it was written "cake for baking in cups".
This book was the first known cookbook and baking book written by an American.
The word cupcake first appeared in 1828 in Eliza Leslie's recipe book, "Seventy-Five Receipts for Pastry, Cakes, and Sweetmeats".
In the picture: the recipe that appeared in the book from 1828. You can see that the writer called the cake cup cake, in two words.
The cupcakes were originally baked in heavy clay cups. Today, you can bake them with appropriate cups, cups or molds that can be easily found in any kitchenware store.
Happy chocolate cupcake day!
