Today I am sharing with you guys my favourite chocolate cupcake recipe.
I use this recipe every time I make cupcakes and I have perfected it so you can get the best chocolate cupcakes everything!
This recipe will make around 12-16 cupcakes depending on the size of your tray.
For the cake mixture-
6 ounces of caster sugar (granulated sugar is fine)
6 ounces of unsalted butter
6 ounces of flour
2 ounces of cocoa powder (you can change this amount depending on how chocolatey you want the cakes to be)
A dash of milk (I use semi-skimmed milk)
1 and a half teaspoons of vanilla extract (you can change this amount depending on if you want the cakes to taste of vanilla)
For the icing –
300g of icing sugar
150g of unsalted butter
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
1- Pre-heat your oven to 190 degrees Celsius
2- Cream together the butter and the sugar
3- Add the 3 eggs, mixing inbetween adding the eggs
4- Sift in the flour and cocoa powder
5- Mix this all together until the mixture is creamy
6 (optional)- Add a dash of milks to the mixture
7- Add the vanilla extract
8- Evenly distribute the mixture between 12 cupcake cases (I use an ice cream scoop to help get the proportions right)
9- Bake the cakes for around 15 minutes until they are soft to the touch
10- When the cakes have cooled, make the icing and ice them (I used a small star nozzle to ice the cakes but you can do Ice them however you want)
11 (optional)- Add sprinkles to the top of the cakes (I used rainbow sprinkles for a splash of colour)
