Double Chocolate Cupcakes

Just in case you missed this post I did over at The Sweet Detail, this is the recipe I shared.

Double Chocolate Cupcakes

You'll need:

1/2 cup butter (room temp)
2 cups flour
1 1/3 cups sugar
2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/3 cup milk
2 eggs
1/4 cup cocoa powder and 1/4 cup milk mixed together


200g dark chocolate
100ml double cream 
sprinkles of choice

1. Cream the butter and then mix with the dry ingredients.

2. Gradually add a cup of the milk and when all that is mixed in mix in the rest of the milk, eggs and cocoa and milk mixture.

This is actually what your cocoa mix should look like!

3. When the mixture is all combined ladle it into cupcake cases.

4. Bake for twenty mins on 180 degrees C in a preheated oven.

5. For the topping melt the chocolate and cream together and leave to cool and thicken for twenty mins (this will also give time for the cupcakes to cool).

6. Frost to your hearts content and add sprinkles.

Just so you know, this will happen if you let your three year old help...

Enjoy at room temp (but store in fridge because of the cream).
