Recently, baking tends to come in spurts. I bake in between work, after shelf exams, or before a marathon study period. If I'm running short on time, but have the urge to bake, I choose something simple and fast -usually one I've made before.
But for special occasions? Although they are my favorite, plain old chocolate chip cookies don't always cut it.
So I give you these Black Bottom Cupcakes. They are both quick and easy, but also a step up from the basic cookie.
