Chocolate Orange Cupcakes | Paige Claassen
Well, if you love this name, you should thank the one and only Kara Caputo. If it confuses you, go brush up on your childhood knock knock jokes. Regardless, the name proceeded the cupcake. And no, there aren't bananas in the recipe. In order to come up with a cupcake that would live up to this name, I imagined the best possible compliment to orange, and ended up with chocolate. In all fairness, I would have chosen chocolate regardless of the first flavor. The chocolate cupcakes weren't too chocolatey, I might suggest adding more cocoa powder and perhaps mini chocolate chips to increase the chocolate pow. The frosting tasted like an orange creamsicle, delicious!
