Baking up a batch of cupcakes
If someone asked me what my favourite cupcakes were to make I would have to say choclate. The glossiness of the batter combined with the way they make my house smell just endear me so much these little bundles of chocolatey goodness so I thought I would share with you the recipe I swera by along with some pictures of my beautiful KitchenAid in action. (Seriously, how did I bake before with one??)
The recipe I use is from the wonderous Martha Stewart with her classic One Bowl chocolate cupcakes. I was sceptical at first but then I am a big follower of How to Eat a Cupcake and she gave them the thumbs up so who am I pass them by? They are soooo simple to make and you're guranteed to have the ingredients to hand so give them a go! Here is what I did with mine after they had cooled, topped them with a bit of my special recipe buttercream and a little fondant flower. Simple, yummy and a biteful of heaven for a chocoholic like me.
