I love this photo of my dog, Milton. Look at him eyeing the cupcake from afar!This is a very simple chocolate cupcake recipe that comes out very moist and not too rich. As a result, one could single handedly eat the entire batch without needing any assistance!

Ingredients (Makes 6 cupcakes)

  • 40g butter
  • 80g brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 100g self raising flour
  • 30g dark chocolate
  • 10g cocoa powder
  • 80ml boiling hot water
  1. Melt dark chocolate in the microwave.
  2. Cream butter and sugar together. Add egg and the rest of the ingredients in and mix together.
  3. Bake in 180 Celcius oven for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted.
Decorate as you wish – I chose whipped cream and a strawberry.

These were dressed with chocolate ganache instead.
