History of National Chocolate Cupcake Day
The origin and the founder of the National Chocolate Cupcake Day are anonymous. The celebration Day would have been established to celebrate the Chocolate Cupcake which is considered to be the perfect form of Cupcakes. Chocolate cupcakes are called in the other names like Fairy Cakes, Patty Cakes, and Cup Cakes. The first mention of the cupcake date back to1796. American Cookery by Amelia Simmons has written about the recipe notation of “a light cake to bake in small cups.” Eliza Leslie’s Receipts cookbook in 1828 marks the earliest documentation of the term cupcake with the name “Seventy-five Receipts for the Pastry, Cakes, and Sweetmeats.”
There were two mentions on how the cupcakes have got their name. The cupcakes were often baked in individual heavy pottery cups, ramekins, or molds. They have got this name from the cups they were baked in. The second one is that the name comes from the recipe, which was measured out by the cup. i.e., one cup butter, two cups of sugar, three cups of flour, four eggs, one cup of milk, one spoonful of baking soda. The use of this name has remained ever since. The name “cupcake” now refers to any small cake that is about the size of a teacup. A standard cupcake makes use of the same basic ingredients as standard-sized cakes. It includes butter, sugar, eggs, flour, and flavor.
Any recipe that is suitable for making a layer of cake can be used to bake the cupcakes. Cupcakes are now prepared in a variety of flavors, ingredients, and decorations. Chocolate is one of the most popular flavors preferred by most people. They are also made with cocoa-flavored batter. Chocolate cupcakes may or may not be topped with chocolate-flavored frosting. They are sometimes filled with chocolate ganache or sprinkled with grated chocolate. Many of them make their chocolate cupcakes by adding gourmet ingredients like coffee, pumpkin, beer, and whiskey.
