Sheetal Kamat

This was one of my impromptu attempt to bake something that turned out quite great. It had been long time since I had the frosting in the fridge so thought about baking something to use that one and these cupcakes worked perfectly well with the frosting.

Chocolate Cupcakes
2 Cup Sugar
2 Spoon Vanilla Essence
1 Egg
1/2 Cup Oil
1 Cup Milk
1.75 Cup Maida
1 Cup Coco Powder
1 Spoon Baking Powder
1 Spoon Baking Soda
1/2 Spoon Salt
2 Spoon Instant Coffee

  • Preheat oven at 325F/160C
  • Mix together egg, sugar and vanilla essence.
  • Add in oil and milk and whisk the mixture over medium speed.
  • Sieve maida, coco powder, baking powder and baking soda couple of times to form homogeneous mixture.
  • Add the sieved contents and salt in the egg-oil-milk mixture and whisk on low speed till well combined about 2 minutes
  • Warm 1 cup of water with coffee in microwave for about a minute.
  • Add the coffee to the cake mixture and whisk on low speed for another 2 minutes.
  • Line around the cupcake pan with around 14 cup cake liners and fill them with the cake mixture about 3/4th level in each.
  • Bake in the oven for 18 minutes.
  • Allow the cakes to cool off for at least an hour and then serve with frosting and optionally filling

I didn't use the filling but chocolate ganache would be great option.
I used chocolate butter cream that I have made previously to frost another cake as the frosting and it went well.
