I love Tupperware´s silicone products. Those are so simply and easy to use. The silicone is very high quality and forms are 100% silicone. That means that you don´t have to grease the forms. The only thing you have to do is to rinse those with cold water before adding any dough.
Silicone baking forms withstand temperatures from -25˚C to 220˚C. You can use forms for food preparation in the freezer, microwave and in a conventional oven. Those are easy to storage even in small kitchens. There is special silicone forms for example bread, waffles and cupcakes. I mostly use the cupcake form for both sweet and savory dishes. One of my favorite sweets are cupcakes because those are easy to do and you can decorate those in so many ways.
And chocolate... My favorite ingredient. I made very moist and soft chocolate cupcakes with a hint of coffee. Easy to do with silicone cupcake form. You don´t have to use muffin paper but I sometimes use because of the look. The recipe for dough is mine but for frosting I used Tupperware´s recipe because it´s just so good. Although I change water to a coffee for more flavor.
Chocolate cupcakes (12)
100 g butter (room temperature)
1 dl regular sugar
1 dl soft light brown sugar
3 dl flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla sugar
100 g crème fraîche
1 dl coffee
50 g dark chocolate
100 g dark chocolate
40 g butter
1½ dl icing sugar
2 tbsp coffee
Place two silicone cupcake forms to cold oven tray. Remember to rinse those with cold water. Preheat the oven to 175˚C.
Put the sugar and butter into a mixing bowl and beat until fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating between each egg.
Spoon the batter into the silicone cupcake forms to make them about three- quarters full.
Bake on the middle shelf for about 20 minutes.
Leave to cool for about 10 minutes before taking of from the form.
For frosting add the chocolate and butter into a microcook pitcher and melt in the microwave. Then add the icing sugar and coffee and mix well together.
Dip the cupcakes on at a time to a frosting. If you want, you can melt some white chocolate and decorate the cupcakes with that and some candy.
