Cupcakes - Chocolate & Vanilla
I made these same cupcakes for 2 different events that we had, both on the same weekend.
ingredients for cupcakes
220g caster sugar
225g self raising flour
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
preheat oven to 180c and line your muffin tins with cupcake wrappers (makes about 18 cupcakes).
whisk together cream, sugar and eggs until well combined. Gradually add flour and beat until smooth, add vanilla. Take half of the mixture and put into a seperate bowl. TO the remaining half, add the cocoa powder and mix well (add a little milk if the mixture gets too thick)
dollop alternate spoons from each bowl into cupcake wrappers and bake for about 20 minutes (keep an eye on them!)
When cakes have cooled, ice with vanilla icing (icing sugar, a dab of butter & hot water), then drizzle randomly with melted dark chocolate (I melt in the microwave, them ut into a plastic bag and snip off the corner, for easy drizzling)
