Black&White Cupcakes

It’s a long time since I have posted anything with a visit from my family and the whole sea of chocolate I’ve been swimming in since Christmas. I made these cupcakes a while ago, and they really are quite scrumptious.

What a pity I made too much icing, oh well, suppose I just had to finish the bowl.

Black & White Cupcakes

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • pinch of baking soda
  • 3 and a half tbsp. unsweetened cocoa
  • 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate
  • 3 ounces butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup superfine sugar

for the frosting

  • 6 ounces butter, softened
  • 3 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 2 tbsp. milk
  • 6 drops vanilla extract
  1. Preheat the oven to 350degrees fahrenheit. Line a muffin pan with 12 baking cups and spray generously with cooking spray.
  2. Sift together the flour, baking soda, and cocoa.
  3. Melt together the chocolate and butter over a gentle heat, stirring constantly until smooth. Remove from heat.
  4. Beat together the eggs and superfine sugar. Add the flour mixture, then stir in the melted chocolate mixture.
  5. Fill each baking cup and bake for about 30 minutes until a crust has formed but cupcakes are still slightly moist in the centre. Leave to cool or serve warm.
  6. For the frosting, beat the butter until light and fluffy. Sift in the confectioners’ sugar and beat until smooth, adding milk and vanilla extract.
  7. Spread the frosting on each cupcake when cooled.
