Awesome Chocolate cupcakes

I want to thank my beautiful friend from Ireland Lisa Carroll for this recipe!!!
This was my first time making cupcakes and they turned out so moist and delicios...they are to die for indeed!!!

Chocolate Cupcakes with Chocolate topping

(These are to die for!!!)

150g    Marg/ butter

300g    Caster sugar

3          Beaten eggs 

250ml  Full fat milk

225g    Plain flour (all purpose)

a pinch of salt

1 tps    Baking soda (Bicarbonate of soda)

50g      Cocoa Power

Preheat oven 155C or 350F or Gas 4

Beat the butter and sugar in a mixing bowl until soft and creamy

Beat in the eggs and milk

sift in flour, salt, soda, cocoa and combine with wooden spoon or spatula (dont over mix, i found the cupcakes crack and don't rise if mixed to much!)

Spoon mixture into paper  cases in bun tin and bake for 15mins, Until the cupcakes are springy to touch.

cool on wire rack.


175g milk chocolate (its hard to find good chocolate in Toronto!! lol..)

110g unsalted marg/butter

1tsp vanilla extract

white chocolate sprinkles

Melt the chocolate and butter in a pan over a VERY low heat. ( I put the choc and butter in a large bowl over a saucepan of boiling water and melt that way) Remove and stir in the vanilla extract and leave to cool and thicken, pipe the icing thickly over the top of the cakes and cover with white choc sprinkles....
