Mocha Valencia Cupcakes from One Bowl Baking
When I looked through One Bowl Baking by Yvonne Ruperti, the recipe for Mocha Valencia Cupcakes really jumped out and grabbed me. She had a similar story - she bemoaned the loss of the Mocha Valencia at Starbucks and tried to recreate it in a cupcake. I had to make them too. The cupcakes are a moist chocolate cake with coffee and orange, and the topping is a rich ganache with all the same flavors. They were a huge hit and I will make them again.
Yvonne Ruperti has worked as a recipe tester and developer at America's Test Kitchen and Cook's Illustrated, and these skills come across in the entire book. Highly recommended!
