Chocolate cupcakes

Perhaps there is not such a difficult or special recipe, but these cupcakes are beautifully decorated so they could stay on a festive table, for example on a Christmas dinner.

Chocolate cupcakes


Ingredients: 1 stick of butter, 400 g sugar (0.9 lb), 2 tbs of cocoa, 130 ml of milk (4.5 oz) , 4 eggs , 300 g flour (3+1/3 cups), baking powder, rum essence, 600 g chocolate cream to decorate (1.5 lb).


Chocolate cupcakes
Firstly, preheat the oven at about 180 C/ 356 F. Put the butter, sugar, milk and cocoa on low temperature fire and stir with a wooden spoon until the sugar is completely dissolved. Leave aside to cool. In the meantime mix the whites until stiff peaks. When the other mixture is completely cooled, add the yolks one at a time, stirring well, then add the flour, the baking powder, the rum essence, and in the end add the egg whites stirring gently with downwards movements. Pour the mixture into the cupcakes shapes, where you previously placed brown cupcake papers, then bake in preheated oven at medium heat,  for about 15-20 minutes. (The amount is enough for  24 cupcakes.)

When they are ready, remove the cupcakes from the shapes and leave aside to cool. Decorate with chocolate cream on top and any other chocolate decoration you wish.

Enjoy!
