Hey girlies and guys,
So I spent a while today doing some baking and I made some loving chocolate cupcakes.
So in this post I will be sharing with you all the recipe that I used to make these chocolate cupcakes
1 1⁄3 cups flour
1⁄4 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
3⁄4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 dash salt
3 tablespoons softened butter
1 1⁄2 cups sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
3⁄4 cup milk
Heat oven to 180 degrees Celsius
Put cupcake liner in muffin tin OR grease very well muffin tin.
sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa and salt.
The in another bowl beat together the butter and sugar and then add the eggs beating very well then mix in the vanilla.
Add the flour mixture alternately with the milk to the sugar and be sure to beat well each time!.
Spoon batter into the muffin cups 2/3 full.
Bake for 15 to 17 minutes oven, or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean.
Next make up some buttercream frosting
Buttercream frosting ingredients
4 cups of powdered sugar
1 Cup (2 sticks) of Softened butter (we have used both salted and unsalted, but we normally use salted.)
2-3 teaspoons of vanilla
1-2 tablespoons of milk
Buttercream frosting directions
In your mixer, or big mixing bowl, add 4 cups of confectioner (powdered) sugar. You can sift the powdered sugar if it is really lumpy.
Add 1 cup (2 sticks) of softened butter.
Add 2-3 teaspoons of vanilla. Add 1 tablespoon of milk. I keep the milk handy to add at the end if I need to thin it out.
Start your mixer (or beaters) on the lowest setting. I usually put a clean dishtowel around my mixer to keep the sugar from flying out. Keep on low until the butter and sugar are incorporated and then kick your mixer up to medium high.
Once fully incorporated, after a minute or so, stop the mixer and check the consistency and taste. At this point your frosting may be a little dry. Add a little bit of milk, mix and check again.
Let your cupcakes cool while you are making up your buttercream frosting.
Once the frosting is made place in a piping bag and pipe onto cupcakes add sprinkles if you want to.
