Hot Chocolate Cupcakes

March 7, 2016

Cupcake Woes

Why is a decent cupcake so hard to find these days?  I find that I am being completely ripped off in coffee shops because the cakes are more icing than cake.  When I made these cupcakes it was a gloomy day,  I had been caught in a hailstorm and all I wanted to do when I returned home was eat comfort food and have a long hot bath.  Understandably when you have a bad day the last thing you want to do is spend your time cooking unless you love it but this recipe is super easy and because it tastes so good hot just like hot chocolate you don’t have to wait too long for the cakes to cool down.  Yaaay!

This recipe was taken from the hummingbird bakery: cake days (Harper Collins Publishers, 2011).



240ml whole milk, 25g hot chocolate powder, 80g softened butter, 280g caster sugar, 240g plain flour, 1 tbsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp salt, 2 large eggs.



  1. Pre heat the oven to 190 degrees C.
  2. Fill a muffing tin with muffin cases.
  3. Gently warm the milk without boiling it.
  4. Add the powder, still until dissolved then set aside.
  5. In a medium bowl beat the butter and sugar together until creamy.
  6. Beat in the eggs then sift int he rest of the ingredients.
  7. Mix the hot chocolate mixture with the cake batter and divide into the muffin tins.
  8. Bake for 18 – 20 minutes until springy to the touch.
