Whisk mix cocoa, coffee and vanilla extract.
In the same way, mix the flour, baking powder, soda and salt.
Melt the butter and sugar in a saucepan, then beat with a mixer for 5 minutes until the mass cools. Add eggs one by one, then mix the cocoa and coffee. Pour in half the flour mixture, stir. Next add sour cream, also stir. And only then – the remaining flour mixture.
Spread the dough in molds and send it to the oven heated to 175 degrees for 20 minutes.
Bring cream with molasses to a boil. Finely chop chocolate, put it in a wide dish and pour hot cream. After 15–20 seconds, melt the pieces gently with a spatula and stir into an absolutely homogeneous mass – you should start from the middle, gradually grabbing more and more chocolate.
Put the cream in the fridge and stir occasionally until it freezes so much that it will keep its shape. Then put the cream in a pastry bag and squeeze it on the finished cupcakes. Decorate cream domes with golden dragees.
I made this recipe and it was okay, but I think it could use more spice.
