225g soft butter/margarine
1 cup castor sugar
4 extra-large eggs
2 cups self-raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
½ cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup milk or as needed
Line 2 muffin / cupcake tins with cupcake cases.
Add all the ingredients, except the milk, into a large bowl. Using an electric hand whisk, beat together until just smooth. Add a little milk until the mixture is of a dropping consistency, the mixture shouldn’t be runny.
Spoon the mixture into the paper cases. #capemalaycooking
Bake the cupcakes in a preheated oven, 170°C for 15-20 minutes or until well risen and firm to the touch. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
175 g butter, softened
350g icing sugar
3-4 Tbsp cocoa powder
To make the topping, put the butter in a bowl and beat until fluffy and creamy. Sift in the icing sugar and cocoa powder, beat until smooth and creamy. Add a drop of milk if the mixture is too stiff.
When the cupcakes are cold, spread or pipe frosting on top of each cupcake, and decorate according to your choice.
Alternatively, mix chocolate mousse according the packet instruction and pipe using a spiralling motion onto the cupcakes in a large swirl.
