These chocolate cupcakes are really yum and get done fast too!! Makes 24 mini cupcakesINGREDIENTS-
1)125 gms butter, softened (has to be softened and not melted!! i made that mistake and the butter ended up separating out…so i got really dry cupcakes the time that i melted the butter!)
2)125 gm + 1 tbsp powdered sugar
3)2 medium eggs
4)2 tbsp milk
5)100gm self raising flour
6)3 level tbsp cocoa(this can be varied to around 2.75 tbsp cocoa…3 tbsp cocoa is a bit towards the darker side. πŸ˜‰ )


1)Preheat the oven to 190 degrees.
2)Beat together the butter and sugar in a bowl,until light and fluffy..Again..make sure the mixture doesn’t separate out…:P
3)Add the eggs and milk, and sift over the flour and cocoa. Beat until the mixture is smooth.Dont worry if the texture feels thick….Thats how its supposed to be!

4)Divide the mixture between paper cases and bake until the cakes have risen and are just firm to touch in the centre.(Takes approx 10-12 min).

5)Remove the cakes and transfer to wire rack to cool!

Your mini cupcakes are done!!! Ideal for picnics!! πŸ˜€
