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..

Cocoa powder-half cup
Hot water-one cup
APF/maida-1+1/3 cup
Baking powder-2 tsps
Sugar-1 cup or more
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


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


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...
