I love cupcakes....I know, you have heard it all before. I just can't help but love something that is so simple, compact, and yummy. I was making brownies, and I thought to myself...Why can't brownies be cupcakes? So...I thunk it...so I did it. But I will tell you, it won't happen again. They aren't called cupbrownies for a reason....they kindof stick...not terribly, but just enough to be annoying. So don't do it.

Killer brownies
8 oz unsweetened chocolate chips
1 cup butter
5 eggs
1 Tablespoon instant coffee (I like Medaglia brand)
3 cups sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
13/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Butter a 9X13 pan with the paper that wraps the butter. I do this all the time, and find that it is just enough to butter a pan!
Melt chocolate and butter and coffee in a saucepan, cool to room temperature. In a mixer, beat eggs, sugar and vanilla at high speed until light and fluffy. Blend in chocolate mixture, flour and salt until just mixed. Pour into prepared pan.
Bake for 35-40 minutes.

Wow! These look yummy! I'm really enjoying your blog. So much so that I nominated you for a Kreativ Blogger award:

Bummer! I've always thought how wonderfully naughty and irreverent it would be to pour brownie batter into cupcake wrappers for the best of both worlds, but I guess I'll learn from you. In any case, the IDEA is tantalizing, and the photo's adorable! Love the way those sprinkles nestle into the folds of the frosting.
