Brownie Cupcakes topped with White Chocolate

As a cupcake fanatic I can’t explain it but for some reason I have always thought about what brownies would taste like/how they would work as cupcakes. So when I felt like baking one evening, the ingredients I had lent more towards brownies than cupcakes and I didn’t fancy heading to the supermarket when it was 35 degrees so it seemed like the best time to have a go at making Brownie Cupcakes topped with White Chocolate:

Ingredients

  • 125g of Sugar
  • 100g of Milk Chocolate
  • 40g of Cocoa Powder
  • 33g of Flour
  • 1tsp of Baking Powder
  • 180g of Brown Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 100g of White Chocolate

Method

  1. Start by preheating your oven to 180C (fan) and placing your cupcake cases into your tin
  2. Then sieve the cocoa powder, flour, baking powder and brown sugar into a bowl and set aside
  3. In a heatproof bowl place your chocolate and butter over a pot of boiling water (do not let the water touch the bottom) and melt together
  4. Once melted turn off the heat but leave over the boiling water and gradually add the cocoa mixture whilst stirring
  5. When combined add the eggs and continue to stir until the mixture is smooth and silky
  6. Then pour evenly into your cupcakes cases
  7. Place into the oven and bake for 13 minutes
  8. Allow to cool
  9. Once cool you can melt the white chocolate over boiling water in a heatproof bowl before drizzling over the top (in a design as you wish, mine were not as neat as I hoped but it still tastes good!)
  10. Let the white chocolate set and eat!

Note: This recipe makes 12 cupcakes

In honesty, I probably won’t be making these Brownie Cupcakes topped with White Chocolate again as although they tasted really great and were mega gooey just as brownies should be, this meant that they stuck to the cases quite a bit (which meant valuable brownie was wasted!). However, feel free to use this recipe to make normal brownies as I am sure I will be doing shortly!
