So seen as Halloween is coming up soon, I thought I would share a recipe for ‘Chocolate Devil Cupcakes’. (This is not my image but when I make these, I will post a picture of them on my Instagram and Twitter)
Ingredients (Cake Mix)
· 100g Plain Flour
· 20g Cocoa Powder(you could use Cadbury Bourneville)
· 140g Caster Sugar
· 1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
· 40g Unsalted Butter (at room temperature)
· 120ml Whole Milk
· 1 Egg
· 1/4 tsp Vanilla Extract (optional)
· 12-hole Cupcake Tray, Lined with Paper Cases (Red If You Wish)
· Butter (amount varies)
· Icing Sugar
· Red Food Colouring
· Chocolate Chips
· Piping Bags (or equivalent)
First mix the sugar and the butter together until creamy and soft. Then add all the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly. Then add the liquid ingredients. Bake for around 20 minutes (or until a clean fork can be removed). Leave to cool completely.
For the icing, mix everything together, the amount may vary of each, depending on how much you want of each. Once the buttercream is as red as you like, fill your piping bag and make swirls on each cupcake (like in the picture). Don’t leave it too long before you do the next bit. Get two chocolate chips and put them equal distance apart, to create horns (look at image).
If you make these, post a picture on Instagram and tag me in it!
