Chocolate Cupcakes

By 17:00 ,

I recently realised that a few weeks ago my blog turned 2! Last year I celebrated by sharing some throwback summer photos from when I was younger (you can check out that post here) however this year I wanted to share with you some of my favourite baking recipes that I've found over the years or that have been passed down by family members through the years. The plan is to share a new recipe every other day this week starting today!

 This recipe is one of my favourites and it was originally found here
What you need
40g butter/margarine (room temperature)
110g caster sugar
1 egg
1/4tsp vanilla extract
100g plain flour
120ml milk
1 1/2tsp baking powder
20g cocoa powder

What to do...
Preheat oven to 170°C/325°F/Gas 3

Line a 12-hole muffin tin with cases

Mix the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, salt and butter into a bowl until they have a sandy consistency

mix the rest of the ingredients into a jug

slowly pour half of the mixture into the dry mixture and mix on high until smooth being careful not to over mix

spoon into paper cases until 2/3rds full

bake in the oven for 20-25 mins

set aside to cool on a wire rack before decorating

Check back Tuesday at the same time for the next recipe post
