Iron Cupcake: Earth Challenge: CHEESE (round 2)







Introducing: Fig, Honey, and GOAT CHEESE Cupcakes

I got so excited with CHEESE, I had so many different options I wanted to try out. Flavor 2 is a chocolate cake, goat cheese frosting, topped with fresh fig and drizzled with honey. Match made in heaven if you ask me.

CAKE RECIPE:
2 EGGS
2 CUPS SUGAR
2 TEASPOONS VANILLA EXTRACT
¾ CUP VEGETABLE OIL
2 CUPS MAYONAISE

MIX ABOVE INGREDIENTS UNTIL COMBINED (LESS THAN 1 MINUTE).

3 CUPS FLOUR
6 TABLESPOONS COCOA POWDER
½ TEASPOON SALT

2 CUPS COLD WATER

MIX/SIFT ABOVE DRY INGREDIENTS. ALTERNATELY MIX 1/3 OF THE WATER AND 1/3 OF THE FLOUR INTO THE CAKE BATTER.

2 TEASPOONS BAKING SODA
3 TABLESPOONS WHITE VINEGAR

COMBINE ABOVE INGREDIENTS. AFTER REACTION SEIZES MIX INTO BATTER JUST UNTIL COMBINED.

FROSTING:
8 oz. Goat Cheese
4-5 Cups Powdered Sugar
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
Dash of Salt

TOPPERS:
Sliced Fresh Fig
Honey of Choice

ASSEMBLY:
For regular cupcakes bake at 350 for 15-18 minutes. For mini mupcakes bake at 350 for 12 minutes. I think the rest is self explanatory. Please enjoy.

These look absolutely amazing. I'm trying them this week for an office party.

Based on the amount of ingredients it looks like this is for 2 dozen?
