Happy Sunday friends!
It’s raining outside and that always makes me want to bake like crazy. Today I decided to give the famous cupcakes a try. I have to admit I never made „real“ cupcakes. You know, the one including topping. Why? Well, because I am not into buttercream. Never was. But I love cream cheese so I made a chocolate cupcake with chocolate cream cheese froszting. Hooray! 🙂
First, let’s bake the cupcakes!
For 16 cupcakes, you will need:
- 115 g butter, room temperature
- 200 g sugar
- 2 large eggs, room temperature
- 85 g flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 60 g unsweetened cocoa powder
- 120 ml milk
- 1 teaspoons vanilla
- mini semi-sweet chocolate chips (a handful)
As a first step, beat the butter until softened. And then add sugar and keep beating until light and fluffy. Keep beating and add the eggs until everything is well combined.
In a seperate bowl, mix flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cocoa powder. In another bowl, mix the milk and vanilla. Add the „dry“ ingredients to the butter-sugar-egg-mix and then add the vanilla milk. Stir in chocolate chips.
Scoop the batter into baking cups 1/2 full. Bake at 175 °C – about 15 – 20 minutes and use a toothpick to try if already finished.
- 200 g cream cheese, room temperature
- 100 g unsalted butter, room temperature
- 300 g powdered sugar
- 30 g cocoa powder
First, mix the cream cheese and butter until smooth and creamy. Then, slowly mix in the powdered sugar. And as a last step, mix in the cocoa powder. Add it to the top of your cakies and… well, you’re done! You also might want to add some nuts like I did.
Oh! And one last advice… Please hide the cupcakes. Because if you don’t…
someone might just eat them all! 🙂
