Simple chocolate cupcakes


Just now my daughter requested me to make cupcakes for her to bring to orphanage house tomorrow. Her school teacher will bring them there. I have been thinking to make cupcakes for large amount because I want to try the 24-holes muffin pan that I bought from Melbourne’s trip. I was so happy to accept this order ^_^

I have some leftover dairy whipping cream, so i replaced milk with whipping cream and resulted a very buttery and soft butter cake! I find the cocoa aroma is not that strong, next time i might increase the cocoa powder in this recipe.

Wow, the 24 hole muffin pan is so beautiful..... If you are baking for a big batch, this muffin pan is just the right one instead of waiting for the next batch. Good for you to source baking utensils from overseas because other countries have unique kind of pans, utensils etc.

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Mrs Q, just measured, the size of top part of this muffin is 45mm..the normal 12holes muffin pan is 70mm..

Jeannie Tay said...

Very attractive muffin liners you have, the cakes look so nicely domed and perfect!

Nami | Just One Cookbook said...

Wow this muffin pan is so convenient and I love how you can make many but small size... perfect for kids (huge cupcake is just way too big and too much!). Love your colorful liners and delicious chocolate cupcakes in it. :-)

mui mui said...

Hi Sonia, I like your lovely, colorful cupcake liners. The color are so bright and attractive. I like the simple chocolate cupcakes recipe of yours. Will give it a try soon?
One question, Can i add some chocolate chip into this recipe?
Have a lovely weekend..:)

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Mui Mui, sure, no problem to add chocolate chips, it will even taste better.

Xing hui, can you reduce temp at the bottom heat? What type of oven you are ?

Natasha Ting said...

Anything when prepared in large amount becomes harder than one thinks it will. salute to a loving mum.

Yesterday I went window shopping and saw this 24 mini cupcakes baking pan (but it is not the brand of Baker's Secret)! In your kitchen you must have alot of different sizes, moulds and patterns of baking pans!

NEL, the batter baker said...

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

NEL, i bought these colourful liners from Melbourne..

xing hui said...
