We have guests arriving at The Acorn today and I always give guests fresh eggs from the girls, but I thought I might make some cupcakes too. Chocolate this time.
Here's what I did
1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
pinch of salt
3 tablespoons butter, softened
1 1/2 cups white sugar
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup milk
1 Preheat oven to 175 degrees C. Line a muffin pan with cupcake thingies. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa and salt. Set aside.
2 In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition, then stir in the vanilla. Add the flour mixture alternately with the milk; beat well. Fill the muffin cups 3/4 full.
3 Bake for 15 to 17 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean.

The recipe is from here
Then I used the same frosting recipe that I did for the red velvet cupcakes as it was so lovely!
These are the ones for The Acorn - hope they like them!
They are pretty nice even if I do say so!
The proof is in the eating...
