Preparation

Ultimate Chocolate Cupcakes

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C Fan, Gas Mark 4). Place the Muffin Cases into a muffin tin.

Step 2: Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in the eggs and the Vanilla Extract. If the mixture starts to curdle, add a little flour. Fold in the remaining flour and cocoa powder with a spoon.

Step 3: Evenly divide the mixture between the Muffin Cases and bake for 15-20 minutes until well risen and firm to the touch.

Step 4: Remove from the oven and leave to cool on a cooling rack.

Step 5: Put the Chocolate Buttercream into a piping bag and pipe a swirl of icing on top of each cupcake and leave to set.

Step 6: To decorate, soften the chocolate slightly over hot water, keeping it in one piece. Once slightly soft, use a potato peeler to shave chocolate curls from the chocolate. Stack the curls on the cupcakes.

Ingredients:
75g softened butter
175g icing sugar
45g (3 tbsp) Dr. Oetker Cocoa Powder
       
Method:
1. To make your own chocolate buttercream icing, place the softened butter into a bowl, sieve in the icing sugar and whisk until smooth. 
2. Add the cocoa powder and stir until smooth.
