These cupcakes are so simple to make but so delicious! Here's how I make them...
125g softened butter
125g golden caster sugar
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons of cocoa powder
a pinch of salt
125g Plain flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder
Icing sugar to make them look pretty - optional
Preheat your oven at 175 degrees C
Cream the butter and sugar together until the mix becomes lighter in colour.
Slowly add one egg at a time and beat into the butter and sugar well.
Add the cocoa powder. I add a lot because I love the rich chocolate flavour it gives.
Sift in the flour, salt and baking powder together.
Fold the flour and baking powder mix in with a metal spoon. until you have your cake mix.
Spoon your mixture into 12 cup cake cases set in your tray. Put in the oven for 15 minutes.
You are done, try to let it cool before eating - although it can be difficult to avoid the temptation to eat them hot.
Once cool sift some icing sugar over them to make them look pretty.
