Work Work Work! Followed by a little Cake!

I have had literally no time to do anything this last week, I've been working most Nights. So I thought I'd post a stunning Chocolate Cupcake Recipe I used for my wedding. These are absolutely divine!

The recipe is as follows:

Should make between 10 and 15
130g Good Quality Dark Choc
80g Unsalted Butter
175g Soft Brown Sugar
3 medium eggs
185g Plain flour
1 teaspoon Baking powder
1 Teaspoon Bicarbonate soda
200ml Semi Skimmed Milk
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
2 Table spoons cocoa powder

  1. Cream the sugar and butter together
  2. Add the eggs, vanilla essence and melted Chocolate. (You can do this in a bowl, heated over water)
  3. Mix ingredients together
  4. Gradually add in the Flour, cocoa powder, Baking Powder, and Bicarb and stir.
  5. Gradually add the milk to the mixture!
  6. Now all you need is your bun cases.
  7. Bake in the oven at 180* for roughly about 20-25mins depending on your oven. Allow to cool for an hour before icing.

  2. Sift the icing sugar into the butter
