You know how it is when you have invited your friends at your place and you have promised them that you will bake something delicious ? And then… time is slipping through your fingers and you realize that you have only 60 minutes left, but you are still in your bathtub and there is some laundry underneath your bed (yes I’m sure you have some as well) that needs to be done before they arrive! You are dwelling on between going to a patisserie, but you have to hurry and you’re not in the mood, and moving your ass and bake something from scratch. At that moment you are an inch away from losing control…
And then you came up with something that can actually work! Why not baking the most delicious and thus easiest chocolate cupcakes?
It will literally take you 30 minutes to make them. Here is the recipe;
1. 113gr butter room temperature (1 cup)
2. 2 big eggs
3. 2 tsp vanilla powder
4. 1/2 tsp salt
5. 2 tsp baking powder
6. 50gr cocoa powder (half cup)
7. 200gr crystal sugar
8. 175gr flour
Plus you will need 240ml boiled water and 16 cases for cupcakes.
Let’s do it!
Preheat your oven to 190oC. Boil the water and pour it in a bowl. Add the cocoa powder and mix it with the water. Leave it aside to cool down. In another bowl mix the flour, the baking powder and the salt, and leave them aside. Mix the butter and the sugar separately ’till they become soft and fluffy. Put the eggs in, one by one. Add the vanilla powder and give it a good blend. In that same bowl add the flour mixture and then the one with the cocoa powder. Fill the 2/3 of each cupcake case and bake them for 16 to 20 minutes. Leave them to cool down for 2 to 3 minutes and you are ready to serve!
And there you are! You have the ultimate chocolate cupcakes, ready for you and your friends to enjoy.
