jalapeno cupcake: fail

I guess it wasn’t a complete fail because it did look pretty, but unless you LOVE jalapenos, I’m going to have to retire this recipe. Since I was trying a new chocolate cake recipe, I figured I’d make a few jalapeno cupcakes (since we have a jungle of them and all). So I cut up my pepper…

Put it in my processor and made the pieces REALLLLLLLLY tiny…

Added it to the batter along with a teaspoon of cayenne pepper….

And topped it off with some chocolate ganache icing. Viola! A lovely jalapeno cupcake! The taste test proved otherwise – the chocolate cake was good. REEAAALLLL good – but it was overpowered by the taste of a raw jalapeno. Shortly afterwards, a hotness followed which was pretty neat. I just couldn’t get over the raw pepper taste. Brandon said it wasn’t bad, but I couldn’t tell if he was being honest, or just being nice. Oh well!
