Chocolate Fudge Cupcakes

[Baked on 23 Mar 2013]
Suddenly I felt like eating chocolate fudge cake. I've made chocolate fudge cakes before, and I usually fall back on this recipe - Steamed Moist Chocolate Cake. This recipe yields a very nice chocky and moist cake. However, this time round, I baked them into cupcakes instead. The baked cupcakes were dense and moist. The baked texture was different from the steamed texture. It makes quite a good dense cupcakes.
