Recipe; Chocolate & Fudge Cupcakes

These are the best cupcakes I have made, they are so easy to do and the taste so good! I'm a very keen baker and these cupcakes are some of the best I've ever made it was an effort to stop myself from eating all the mixture as it was so fudgy and delicious!  I found that I only used half the icing and this was plenty. I topped mine with Galaxy Minstrels and Cadburys Buttons :D 

200g butter
200g plain chocolate
200g light, soft brown sugar
2 eggs beaten

1 tsp vanilla extract
250g self-raising flour
Galaxy Minstrels and Cadburys Button to decorate

Icing Ingredients;
200g plain chocolate
100ml double cream
50g icing sugar

  • Heat oven to 160C and line a a baking tray with cupcake or muffin cases. Gently melt the butter, chocolate, sugar and 100ml hot water together in a large saucepan, stirring occasionally, then set aside to cool a little while you weigh the other ingredients.

  • Stir the eggs and vanilla into the chocolate mixture. Put the flour into a large mixing bowl, then stir in the chocolate mixture until smooth. Spoon into cases until just over three-quarters full, then set aside for 5 mins before putting on a low shelf in the oven and baking for 20-22 mins. Leave to cool.

  • For the icing, melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl in a microwave or over a pan of simmering water. Once melted, turn off the heat, stir in the double cream and sift in the icing sugar. When spreadable, top each cake with some and decorate with your chocolate buttons.

I hope you try the recipe, leave a comment,
