What a fluffy and yummy cupcake! We just love this recipe that we find in an awesome blog, the Sweet Little Dream.
Recipe adapted from the blog Sweet Little Dream.
100g butter at room temperature
3/4 cup sugar
3 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp milk
1 1/4 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup cocoa powder
100g semisweet chocolate
1/4 cup cream at room temperature
1. Preheat the oven to 445˚F.
2. Cream butter with sugar until is pale and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add vanilla, milk, flour and baking powder and beat for 5 seconds. Turn off the beater and gently fold with a spatula. Divide the batter in two parts and fold in the cocoa just one of those parts.
3. Fill 9 muffin pans with both batters and lightly stir with a spoon to give a marble effect. When you're going to put the pan in oven, decrease the temperature to 360˚F and bake for 20 minutes or just until a toothpick is inserted comes out clean. Let cool over a rack.
4. Melt the chocolate and stir in the cream. Cover the cupcakes with this mixture and decorate with chocolate curls.
Tips: If you want, substitute half semisweet chocolate for milk chocolate.
Serve: 9 cupcakes.
