Yeah, I know, what a shame.
Anyway, quick backstory: My cousin was sick and a friend was coming down so they wanted dinner. Being the good little gay I was, I made some chicken in mushroom gravy with some KGB Cupcakes. And here's how you can do it.
Chicken In Creamy Mushroom Gravy
- 1/3 C. of Flour
- 1 1/2 tsp. of Thyme
- 1/2 tsp. of Allspice
- 4 Large skinless, boneless chicken breasts.
- 1/2 stick of Butter
- 1 lb. of sliced mushrooms
- 1 small chopped Onion
- 1 C. of whipping cream
- 1 C. of Chicken Stock
Next slice your mushrooms, chop your onion and sautee it in the same pan you fried your chicken in until they've browned. Add the cream and broth and bring it to a boil for about a minute, then add the chicken back in. Reduce to medium-low, let it simmer, and add the remaining flour mixture until the gravy has a thickness suited to your tastes.
(Recipes from HTEAC and Dulcedo)
- 1 1/2 sticks of room-temperature Butter
- 1/2 C. of Cocoa Powder
- 1 1/2 C. of Sugar
- 1 Tbl. of Vanilla
- 3 large room-temperature eggs, separated
- 1/2 C. of cold water
- 1/2 C. Kahlua
- 2 1/4 C. of flour
- 3 Tsp. of Baking Soda
- 4 C. of Icing Sugar
- 3 1/2 Tbl. of Bailey's
- 1 stick of Butter
In a small bowl to the side, mix the water and Kahlua together, and in another side bowl, mix the flour and baking soda together. Alternately mix in the kahlua mixture and the flour mixture until both are fully incorporated into the batter. Now, getting back to those eggs whites; beat them hard until they form a stiff meringue (they'll form little peaks when it's been accomplished), then fold the meringue into the batter. Pour into the cups and bake for 25 minutes, or until a fork comes out clean.
For the frosting, it's just a matter of mixing the Bailey's, icing sugar and butter until it forms the thick frosting. Frost your cupcakes and to add the G to the KGB cupcakes, pour a couple drops on top of the frosted cupcakes. Not enough to make them soggy, but just enough to get a bit of the taste in there.
And finally, because I said I would...
Believe me, as hot as turning yourself into a human cupcake sounds, it doesn't quite compare to the realization that you have sprinkles in your crack. Ugh.
