Chocolate Cupcakes!

 

INGREDIENTS;                                                                                                       Recipe by iSaamuel
3 Eggs Whisked,
1/2 Cup of Sugar,
1/2 Cup of Cake Flour,
1/4 Cup of Cocoa Powder,
1/2 Tsp of Vanilla Extract,
2 Tbsps of Chocolate Chips (Melted) *I used Milk,
1 Tbsp of Instant Coffee,
1/4 Cup of Hot Water.

Whipped Cream;
3/4 Cup of Heavy Whipping Cream,
1 Tbsp of Powdered Sugar,
1/2 Tsp of Vanilla Extract.


1- Whisk together the Cocoa Powder, Instant Coffee, Vanilla Extract, Melted Chocolate and Hot Water in a small bowl. Set aside.
2- In a large bowl, mix eggs and sugar together with an electric mixer until it doubles in volume and turns pale, light and fluffy in appearance. (Beat for about 5-10 minutes to get the right consistency)
3- Add the Chocolate mixture into the light egg and sugar mixture you've set aside in Step 1. Whisk until well combined and mixed through.
4- Gradually sift in the flour and gently mix with a small whisk to prevent flour lumps. Do not overmix otherwise you'll have bread-y/chewy cupcakes! D:
5- Once the batter is well mixed and combined, portion the batter evenly into cupcake liners with an ice-cream scoop.
6- Bake at a preheated 180C for 20-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into a center of a cupcakes comes out clean without any batter!
7- In a large bowl, pour your heavy whipping cream, along with the powdered sugar and vanilla extract. Simply use a whisk and some elbow-grease to whip the cream until it forms a soft peak. (Go ahead and use your electric mixer, you know you want to. ;) )
8- Place the whipped cream into a piping bag fitted with a 'star tip' and gently pipe your desired pattern. Decorate as you like- be as creative as you can!

Impress your family and friends with these delicious Chocolate Cupcakes as you bring them to a Birthday party! Enjoy! (:
