Chocolate Cupcakes

The other day I decided to bake chocolate cupcakes as little Xmas gifts, and have to say they came out really cute and really tasty!!! I was so impressed!! So if you too would like to try out your creative skill on something a little different this Xmas, here is the recipe for how to make chocolate cupcakes with white chocolate frosting! They make great deserts for any occasion and are perfect if you are entertaining, for afternoon's tea and coffee!

Enjoy and happy baking!! :)

Ingredients for about 12 cupcakes:

200g Flower
60g Chocolate powder
190g Sugar
1 Tea spoon baking powder / or 1/2 sachet baking powder
150 ml Milk
2 Egg Yokes
60g Butter
Small cake decorations

Ingredients for white chocolate frosting:

250g Icing sugar
250g Unsalted butter
Tea spoon vanilla extract
200g White chocolate

Cupcakes

Mix all the wet ingredients together: eggs, milk and melted butter.

Mix all the dry ingredients together: flower, sugar, chocolate, baking powder.

Now mix the dry ingredients with the wet ones in a bawl.

Pour the mixture into small cupcakes dishes and place in the oven for 15/20 minutes at 180 C. After baking use a toothpick to check if they are ready - if the toothpick stays clean they are done.

White Chocolate Frosting

Mix soft butter in the mixer, add icing sugar and continue mixing, then add vanilla extract and finally add melted white chocolate (needs to be cool). Mix everything together well.

Decorating

Now the real fun part begins!! Once the cupcakes are ready, let them cool down, then start decorating them with frosting toppings and other small decorative bits such as flowers, hearts, patterns and anything you like! Have fun!
