Chocolate Cupcakes and MEC-Sweets Roundup

I was wondering how i am gonna manage to do the event...Whenever i sit  for the lappy ,hansika sits on my lap and starts operating...I am going nuts to know my daughter is working on it so early...Its my hubby who taught her when i was not around..ahemmm..So,its hard for me to reach these gadgets...

It was a mid night baking after a long time....and clicked these shots in a cloudy ,lazy and drizzling morning..



Ingredients
Cocoa powder-half cup
Hot water-one cup
APF/maida-1+1/3 cup
Baking powder-2 tsps
Sugar-1 cup or more
Eggs-2
Salt-half tsp
Butter-half cup
Vanilla Essence-1 tsp

For the Frosting
Chocolate-4 oz
Butter-150 gms
Icing Sugar-160 gms
Vanilla essence-half tsp

Method

Mix the flour,Baking powder and the salt


Beat the butter and Sugar,until it turns fluffy and creamy


Add the eggs one by one butter mix,and beat them well
Add the flour mix little by little and mix them well


Add the hot water to a bowl of cocoa powder ,mix without lumps and let it cool


Add the cocoa thing to butter batter


Pour it in cupcake moulds and bake it for 190*C for 20 minutes in a pre-heated oven


For Frosting,Mix all the ingredients and apply on the cupcakes


Wowie..



And they are ready....I found the cakes are very mild sweet and after frosting...It was perfect for me...Check the batter for the sweetness,before u bake them
A must try recipe...
