I had baked chocolate cupcakes for frog 30th birthday. It is easy to bake and you can do fanciful frosting and decoration at your cupcakes.
Very colourful right??
Here is the recipe for the chocolate cupcakes:
For the cupcakes
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
200g plain flour
2 tbsp cocoa powder
2 tsp baking powder
8 tbsp milk
For the icing
1 egg white
200g icing sugar
1 packet m&m chocolate
Preheat the oven to 180 degree celcius an line a muffin pan with 12 paper cups.
Cream the butter until light and fluffy, then one after the other beat in the sugar, eggs and vanilla extract.
Mix the flour, baking powder and cocoa to the creamed mixture with the milk.
Alternating additions of dry ingredients and milk.
Spoon into the prepared paper cases and bake for 25 to 30 mins.
Beat egg white until semi stiff, then mix with icing sugar to make a smooth thick frosting.
Put a little of the icing on each cupcake, decorate with as m&m and allow to set before serving.
*Tips: Let the cupcakes cool down before putting the icing. If not the heat from the cupcakes will cause the icing to melt.
Store in air tight container for up to 2 days. Freeze for up to 3 months.
Makes 1 dozen.
