Finally I found the perfect chocolate cupcake recipe! To celebrate it I baked some easter nest cupcakes and they are so so delicious you have to try them out!
If you’re wondering this recipe is really similar to the recipe Zoe used for her easter cupcakes for red nose day.
This recipe is for 14 cupcakes
For the cupcakes you will need:
- 5 tbsp of boiling water
- 40 g of cocoa powder
- 3 eggs
- 175 g of soft butter
- 165 g of sugar
- 115 g of flour
- 8 g of baking powder
For the topping you will need:
- 60 g of butter
- 30 g of cocoa powder
- 3 tbsp of milk
- 250 g of icing sugar
Start with lining your muffin tin with paper cases.
I went for these cute paper cases which literally scream spring!
Now let’s start with our cupcakes.
Take your cocoa powder and mix it with your boiling water.
Until it looks like this.
Then add one egg at the time and mix until well combined.
Add your butter and mix until well combined. Then add your sugar and mix.
Now add your baking powder and flour and mix for a last time until it looks like this:
Fill each paper chase and bake the muffins for 15-20 minutes at 200 degrees Celsius.
Let them cool completely before starting with the topping.
When your muffins are completely cool start with the topping.
Melt your butter (I used the microwave for this).
Then add the cocoa powder and mix.
Don’t be scared when the mixture looks white when you add the icing sugar. When you add the milk it’s going back into a dark brown colour.
Add the milk and mix.
Now fill your topping into a piping bag and pipe the topping over your muffins.
Now take your little chocolate eggs and put them on top of your cupcakes.
And finished are your little easter nest cupcakes! These taste so delicious, my family absolutely love them.
Let me know if you’re going to try them out!
(I already made another 14 of these because they are so yummy and already gone)
