Chocolate Cupcake with Frosting

Pin It Now!

For the blog hop event, Cook like a Star, organised by Bake for Happy Kids I choose this chocolate cupcake. In order to keep well I bake in paper cup instead of ice-cream cones. This cupcake can be known as triple chocolate cupcake. First melted chocolate is added into the batter. 2nd the cocoa powder and the last one is chocolate chips (original recipe is using chocolate cubes).

Since I have some leftover whipped cream from birthday cake I used it to deco my cupcake. The whipped cream definitely add bonus to these cupcake.  My sons like them very much ^.^
Adapted and slightly modified from Donna hay, chocolate cupcake ice-creams
Ingredient :Yield about 12 standard cupcakes
125g butter, softened
165g castor sugar(reduced to 60g)
2 eggs
190g all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
125ml milk
100g dark chocolate, melted (I used semi-sweet)
80g dark chocolate, extra, chopped(I used chocolate chips)
1. Place the butter and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat until light and creamy. Gradually add the eggs and beat well after each addition.

2. Sift over the flour, baking powder and cocoa and beat until combined. Fold through the milk and stir in the melted chocolate. Lastly the chocolate chips.
3. Spoon the cupcake mixture into lined baking cups. Bake at preheated oven 180C for 20–22 minutes or until cooked when tested with a skewer. Allow to cool. Decorate as you like.
