Method

The easiest yummiest chocolate cupcakes. This recipe uses basic ingredients. I love the fact that everything is so easy to get hold of now that simple recipes are achievable for everyone. Anyway, less waffle…. On to the recipe

Start by mixing together the butter and sugar. Mix this until lighter in colour and fluffy.

Scrape down the bowl and add in all your other ingredients and mix well.

See I told you it was easy!!

Spoon into the cases to 3/4 full. Cook in a preheated oven for 18 minutes. Turn the tray around and cook for a further 3-4 minutes. Take out once cooked and leave to cool in the tray.

Once cool, its time to decorate these yummy chocolate cupcakes.

Make up some chocolate buttercream using 250g unsalted butter, 440g icing sugar and 60g cocoa powder

Fill your piping bag with the 1E nozzle and swirl those chocolate beauties. Add on your sprinkles and TA-DA!!!

Enjoy x

    1. Hi.
      Yes the recipe is correct. It uses self raising flour which has a raising agent in. If plain flour was used in this recipe, then baking powder would be needed but not with self raising flour.

  1. Hi, may I kindly ask do you mix using a hand mixer or a stand mixer? Paddle or whisk? Sorry if it may be obvious, but just thought I’d ask to make sure. Thanks a million for sharing! Xxx

    1. Hey. I always use a stand mixer. I have a kitchen aid and kenwood and both are brilliant. I always use a paddle attachment on these. I’ve also got a hand mixer which I use too. Dani x
