Method —Chocolate Cupcake Recipe

Make the dark chocolate cupcakes

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C (Electric oven | Electric fan oven 160°C | Gas Mark 4) and place 12 paper cases into a muffin tin.
  • Using an electric whisk, food processor or wooden spoon, beat the butter or margarine, sugar and cocoa powder until very light and fluffy.
  • Add the eggs one at a time, beating each one in well before adding the next.
  • Carefully fold in the flour (and baking powder if using).
  • Melt the chocolate and fold in to the mixture. Then thin the mixture with the milk.
  • Alternatively, you can mix the ingredients together using a food processor. Use the pulse button to mix together in between adding the ingredients in the order above.
  • Bake in the oven for 10 - 20 minutes. After 10 minutes, check to see if the chocolate cupcakes are ready by inserting a cocktail stick into one of the cupcakes. If it comes out dry then the cupcakes are done. If not, then back in the oven for a few minutes more. Don't overcook the chocolate cupcakes otherwise they will dry out. Lift the cupcakes out of the muffin tin and leave to cool on a wire rack.

Make the dark chocolate icing 

  • Place the dark chocolate and butter in the microwave until just melted - a minute should do.
  • Using an electric whisk, food processor or wooden spoon, beat the mixture until combined.
  • When the cakes are cool, drizzle some chocolate icing mixture over the top of each cupcake. These chocolate cupcakes are best eaten on the day they are made.
