Chocolate Cupcakes

In celebration of Chocolate Cake Day on 27th January, we thought we'd share our super quick chocolate cupcake recipe. Serve this homemade treat to your customers alongside their chosen drink. Who doesn’t love a cake with their tea or coffee, especially on a cold, gloomy January day.

Time to prepare: 15 minutes

Time to cook: 20-30 minutes

Serves: 24

40g Cadbury Bourneville Cocoa Powder
200g plain flour 
2 and a half tsp baking powder
280g caster sugar
80g unsalted butter
2 eggs
240ml milk
half tsp vanilla extract
Chocolate buttercream

1. Pre-heat your oven to 160c (fan).
2. Whisk together your cocoa powder, flour, sugar, baking powder and butter.
3. Once everything is combined. In a separate bowl, mix in your milk, eggs and vanilla extract together. Slowly add this in the bowl with your other ingredients. Continue whisking until the mixture is smooth with no lumps.
4. Spoon mixture into paper cake cases and cook for 20-30 minutes. Check your cakes are done by inserting a skewer into the centre of one cake which should come out clean.
5. When your cupcakes are cool, decorate using your icing of choice.
