About this recipe:These cupcakes are very rich in chocolate and are, in addition, topped with whipped cream and grated chocolate! Since the cupcakes are so rich, the whipped cream is a welcome change from the heavy icing you normally find on cupcakes.

180ml hot water
300g plain flour
1 pinch salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
110ml single cream

Method Prep:10min › Cook:15min › Ready in:25min
Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4 and line a muffin tray with paper cases.
Take three bowls. In the first bowl, mix the cocoa powder with hot water.
In the second bowl, mix the plain flour with salt and baking powder.
In the third bowl, mix the milk and single cream.
Add the butter and sugar to a fourth bowl and cook in the microwave for 30 seconds or until melted. Mix and then add the eggs one at a time, stirring well after each egg. Stir in the milk mixture. Stir in half of the cocoa mixture then half of the flour mixture then the remaining cocoa and remaining flour.
Fill the cases 2/3 full and bake for 15 minutes at 180 C / Gas 4 (my oven gets very hot, so you might need to leave the muffins for a few more minutes).
Once cooked, top with the whipped cream and grated chocolate. Enjoy!
Taste's amazing, and looks amazing. It's a great pudding - easy to do.
Instead of just doing normal chocolate, I melted milk chocolate and added peppermint flavouring to it. It was very tasty! - 26 Jul 2014
