These cupcakes are so full of yummy flavor I just had to make them minis. You peel the paper off and pop the whole thing into your mouth…so sweet!

I started out with an old pound cake recipe called  “7 UP Cake” and added chocolate. It makes a Bundt  size pan cake so I cut it in 1/2 for about 60 mini cupcakes, filled 1/4  full. When they are done baking they are 1/2 way up the cups. Here’s my recipe-

Make sure all ingredients are room temp.

1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 sticks of butter (don’t substitute…use real butter)
3 eggs

Beat with electric mixer until very smooth.

Melt 3 ounces of unsweetened bakers chocolate in the microwave. Be careful not to burn it!

Stir chocolate to take out the heat. When just warm, stir into butter mixture.  

1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup 7 Up                                                                                       

Mini Muffin Cups Baked 1/2 full.


Beat till smooth. Fill mini cups 1/4 full, bake in preheated 350 oven. Bake about 10 min. Use toothpick to test for doneness…it should come out clean.

In Iowa we have the best ice cream shoppe…Whitey’s Ice Cream. They have 2 awesome flavors with raspberry-
White Chocolate Raspberry Swirl and Black Raspberry Chip. Unbelievably rich and creamy and raspberryee!

DSC00073Top each cool chocolate cake with a mini scoop. Add a small dollop of dark chocolate ganache and a juicy sweet raspberry.

It’s good the batch makes a lot of baby cupcakes cause everybody will want more than one!

    Great to see your entry! I love that you made them baby cupcakes that you can pop into your mouth all in one bite. Neat idea!

      I once heard that a gourmet piece of chocolate should be eaten in 1 bite…the flavors are blended to complement each other and you get the best flavor when you eat them together, in 1 bite. That was my thought when I made these little guys. They were really fun to make.
