White Cupcakes with Chocolate Frosting

These white cupcakes with chocolate frosting are decadent and rich and marvelously old-fashioned in flavor. The cupcakes are made with crème fraîche for extra moistness and the frosting is a chocolate ganache.

*What does crème fraîche do in baking?

A way of preserving milk and cream, crème fraîche has been cultured with a little lactic acid that prevents it from spoiling and also changes the cream to a thickened, tangier product. Somewhere between yogurt and sour cream, it works a lot like buttermilk in baking. Its high-fat content keeps it from curdling at high temperatures and also adds much-needed moisture to baked goods. And that gently tangy taste never hurt, either.
