Spiced Chocolate Muffins with Ganache frosting!
This week's offering is a Devil's food cake style cupcake with a Ganache-style chocolate frosting. The difference is that the "Ganache" here is achieved with sour cream instead of double cream. (Still feels like I have truffles on top of the cupcakes though, lol!)
Without much further ado!
