Chocolate Cupcake Recipe

Ingredients:

  • All purpose flour – 1 cup
  • Baking powder – 1   tsp
  • Cocoa Powder – 3 Tbsp
  • Salt – one pinch
  • Sugar – ¾ cup
  • Sunflower oil – 1/3 cup
  • Egg – 1
  • Vanilla essence – 1  tsp
  • Curd – 1/3 cup
  • Black coffee – 1/3 cup (1/2 tsp instant coffee powder in 1/3 cup warm water)

 

(Note: 1 Cup = 250 ml.

Whenever you are mixing for the cake with hand or hand mixer, you should mix in one direction only to get soft cakes.

Make sure all the ingredients are at room temperature before you start mixing

Make sure your oven settings are correct, else cakes won’t come proper)

 

Method:

Preheat oven to 175 degree. Line a cupcake tray with cup cake liners and keep it ready.

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. Set aside.

In a large bowl take sugar and oil. Mix with a mixer in high speed until its combined well (I mixed in a cup so that its easy to pour into cupcake liners in the end)

Add egg and mix with high speed. Add vanilla essence.

Add the dry ingredients to it, about 2tbsp at a time mixing after each addition, just until combined. (all step from this step should be done in low/medium speed)

When you start finding it difficult to mix start adding curd and mix

Add black coffee prepared and mix until combined.

Batter is ready (The batter prepared will be runny)

Pour the batter in the cupcake tray (2/3 maximum in each liner)

Bake for 15 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Remove the cup cakes from the pan and let it cool completely. It takes few hours for the liners to peel off, well from the cupcakes. It tastes better the next day.
