Preparation time: 30 mins
Bake: 30 mins
Ready in: 1 hour
Serves: 24 cupcakes

Ingredients

  • 4 (1 ounce) (112 g) squares semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1 cup (225 g) butter
  • 1 cup (125 g) all-purpose flour, sifted
  • 1 3/4 cups (350 g) white sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon (5 ml) vanilla extract
  • 2 cups (220 g) chopped pecans

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Line 24 muffin cups with paper liners. In the top of a double boiler, combine chocolate and butter. Heat, stirring occasionally, until mixture is melted and smooth. Remove from heat and allow to cool to lukewarm.
  2. Sift flour and sugar together into a large bowl. With mixer on low speed, beat in eggs one at a time. Stir in chocolate mixture, vanilla and pecans. Fill muffin cups 2/3 full.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes. Do not overbake. Tops should be shiny but give slightly when touched.
