Chocolate Cupcakes with Vanilla Frosting

Following the theme of my last post I wanted to share another recipe, that I should have done a long time ago but weirdly haven’t! Here is my recipe for Chocolate Cupcakes with Vanilla Frosting:

Ingredients

  • 175g of Butter
  • 100g of Sugar
  • 75g of Flour
  • 25g of Cocoa
  • ½ tsp of Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 1 tsp of Baking Powder
  • 2 Eggs
  • 75g of Icing Sugar
  • 1 tbsp of Vanilla Essence

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C (Fan) and put your cupcake cases into your tray
  2. Sift the sugar into a bowl and add 100g of the butter and cream until smooth
  3. Then sift in the flour, cocoa, bicarbonate of soda and baking powder and mix until crumbly
  4. Then add the eggs and whisk until smooth
  5. Then spoon into your cupcake cases and bake for 10-12 minutes until cooked (the best way to tell is to gently push the cupcake and if it springs back, it is ready)
  6. Once the cupcakes have cooled you can start on the frosting
  7. Sift the icing sugar into a bowl and add the remaining butter
  8. Cream together until smooth before adding the vanilla essence and giving it a final and thorough mix
  9. You can then use a palette knife or icing bag to decorate your cupcakes!

My Chocolate Cupcakes with Vanilla Frosting Recipe is another that I see as a staple as I often use it for the base of other ideas. I think once you have these down to perfection you can go anywhere with your cupcake making. And that is our ultimate goal… The perfect cupcake!
