The other day my daughter told me that she started to like baking. Yesterday I chosen this simple recipe from the “Simple & Delicious Cupcakes” book and taught her how to prepare this cupcake. This recipe is very simple, just beat all ingredients together. So this is my daughter 1st cupcake, hope you will like it.
Warm Molten-Centered Chocolate Cupcakes
(recipe source: adapted from Sweet & Delicious Cupcakes book)
140g soft margarine
200g caster sugar
2 large eggs
120g self-rising flour
2tbsp unsweetened cocoa
110g semisweet chocolate
Confectioner’s sugar for dusting
1. Preheat the oven to 190c.
2. Put the margarine, sugar, egg, flour and cocoa in a large bowl and using a handheld electric mixer, beat together until just smooth.
3. Spoon half of the batter in the paper liners. Break the chocolate evenly into 8 squares and place a piece in each cup, then spoon the remaining cake batter on top.
4. Bake the cupcakes in the preheated oven for 20mins, or until well risen and springy to the touch. Leave the cupcakes for 5-10mins before serving warm, dusted with sifted confectioner’s sugar.
If you wish to try out this recipe, please try to reduce the sugar amount as we found this cupcake was too sweet..Also place the semi-sweet chocolate piece after you fill to 3/4 full but not half as suggested as i found the chocolate in our cupcake was not at the center.
Tomorrow i going to attend a Angry Birds cupcake class, with my poor cake decoration skill, I hope it will not turned out like Funny Birds cupcake, hahaha, do come back for my update.
