Chocolate Sponge Cups

Author Notes

This recipe was inspired by ENunn's "Aunt Mariah's Lemon Sponge Cups". I loved ENunn's recipe so much, that I made all the time. Eventually, I got tired of the lemony flavor, so I began tweaking things and adding new ingredients. Finally, I came up with my masterpiece, a chocoholic's dream: Instead of using lemons, I substituted them for some mouth-watering chocolate with a hint of maple. The outer layer is slightly crusted, but the inside is soft, airy and incredibly rich, all at the same time. Enjoy! —The Good Cook
