When it comes the baking and decorating cakes you all probably know by now, I love to make cupcakes. I think it is so important to have a good cupcake recipe that you can rely on every time to create the perfect moist, sponge, that just melts in the mouth. A few months ago I shared with you my vanilla cupcakes recipe, so I thought it was about time I also shared with you how I make my chocolate cupcakes and also the chocolate buttercream to go on top.

Chocolate cupcake recipe

I absolutely love these chocolate cupcakes, and the great thing is there is only 6 ingredients to make them. The ingredients below make a batch of 12, with enough smooth, creamy buttercream to create a beautiful chocolate swirl on top. In the video I used the Wilton 1m piping tip and finished the cupcakes off which these pretty coloured sprinkles by Scrumptious.

So the ingredients you will need to make 12 chocolate cupcakes is:
6oz/ 170g – Self Raising Flour
7oz/ 200g – Butter
7oz/ 200g – Caster Sugar
2 eggs
30g / 1oz – Cocoa Powder
2tbsp – Milk

Chocolate Butercream
10oz / 312g  – Icing Sugar
6oz/ 170g – Salted Butter
30g / 1oz – Cocoa Powder
2tbsp – Milk
