Easter Cupcakes Recipe


One of my favourite things to do around Easter other than stuffing my face with cupoious amounts of Chocolate is baking and I've baked these delicious chocolate cupcakes with a rich, chocolate buttercream with the cutest of decorations especially for the Easter period.

You will need:
115g of Self Raising Flour
115g of Caster Sugar
115g of Unsalted Butter (At room temperature)
2 Eggs
1 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
1 Tsp of Baking Powder

Makes: 8 
Time: 20/25 minutes 

Method:
Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 4
Then line a cupcake tin with cases.
Start by adding the butter and caster sugar into a large mixing bowl and mix it together so that the butter and sugar is creamy, then add the eggs and give it a good mix.
Next you need to sieve the flour into the mixing bowl along with the cocoa powder and Baking powder and mix it all together so that it is well incorporated.
Split the mixture into the muffin cases using an ice cream scoop or teaspoon.
Pop them in the oven for around 20 minutes, check they are cooked by poking them with a tooth pick, if the tooth pick comes out clean they are cooked.
Place onto a wire rack and let them completely cool.

For the buttercream:
175g of Icing sugar
1 Tbsp of Milk
115g of Unsalted Butter (At room temperature) 
50g of Melted dark chocolate
To make the butter cream you need to add the butter into a mixing bowl and use a whisk or hand mixer until the butter is very soft and creamy.
Then add the icing sugar a little at a time, add the milk and mix well so that the mixture has the texture of a buttercream, then add in the melted chocolate. 
Place a nozzle into your piping bag and add all of the buttercream.
Swirl your buttercream onto your cupcakes and decorate with your choice of chocolate, I went with halved Cadburys Creme eggs and galaxy gold eggs. 

Enjoy!
