Chocolate Cupcakes

Don’t they look like they just jumped off the pages of a whimsical children’s book? Well I think so.

Was baking cupcakes for a bbq gathering with some of my old school mates from poly and thought I could experiment a little. It won’t hurt anyway, I mean if the cupcakes turned out horrible, at least I won’t be sued! 😛

So anyway, I realised I have been baking plenty of vanilla cupcakes and no chocolate ones. Then I felt like making some, so Dot & I did a google search and found the most yummy chocolate cupcake recipe ever.

Why yummy? I totally love the texture of these cupcakes. They’re springy to the touch and really soft and moist. It was just nice. I was too lazy to make some chocolate ganache so I frosted these beauties with Nutella and topped it off with a cute little ‘knob’.

I’m sure it won’t take long for you to guess what’s that ‘knob’. I think it upped the ‘cuteness’ of these cupcakes. I know, it’s nothing compared to those elaborate and delicate designs we find on cupcakes these days. Well, I’m no cupcake queen I have to admit so I’d rather stick to simple raw designs.

They are Maltesers by the way! I think they looked good on my cupcakes – they complemented each other. The cupcakes were a hit and I baked them again the next day for another bbq I attended and whaddyaknow, they were wiped out pretty fast too!

I got the recipe from the Joy of Baking website and you can find the recipe here: Joy of Baking’s Chocolate Cupcake Recipe. Simply click on that link! Have fun ya?


Here’s a little note to those who bought stuff from the bake sale…

Cocoa & Butterscotch thank all for their kind support and we’re in the midst of consolidating ALL orders and will start baking very soon. So please be patient and try to confirm the collection dates if you haven’t already. Thank you so much! We love you!

My favorite recipe is probably still these molten cupcakes from the site, but these look so, so good. I’ll have to give them a try!
