Chocoholic ~ Easy Chocolate Cupcakes Recipe

Despite how much I love cake, I think I might love cupcakes just that little bit more! They're always so fun to decorate! 
I got some cute little teacup cupcake molds a while ago very similar to the ones below! Cute, aren't they? They always add some extra charm to any cupcake so it's no wonder I love to use them so much!

 What You'll Need:
1 Cup Self-Raising Flour
1/2 Cup Plain Flour
1/3 Cup Cocoa Powder
3/4 Cup Caster Sugar
190g Softened Butter
3 Eggs
1/2 Cup Milk

Makes:
15

Method:
Step 1~ Preheat your oven to 180ºC/355ºF (160ºC/320ºF fan forced). Line 15 holes of two muffin pans with paper cases.
Step 2~ Sift your dry ingredients into a medium large bowl. Then add your remaining ingredients and beat with an electric mixer on low speed until all ingredients are combined. Increase electric mixer speed to medium, then beat until your mixture is smooth and has changed to a slightly paler color.
Step 3~ Divide your mixture evenly between your 15 paper cases. Bake for about 15-20 minutes.
Let your cupcakes stand for 5 minutes before turning them top side up onto a wire rack to cool.
Step 4~ Ice your cupcakes (I prefer using icing from the store). 
Now it's time to sit back, relax, and enjoy your freshly baked chocolate cupcakes, Enjoy!

I hope you all have a wonderful day full of love and lots of baking!

  2. Hello,

    Can you please remove my images from your post? Firstly, you have incorrectly credited me by only including a tiny link to the front page of my blog rather than to the direct post for these Milo Cupcakes with Condensed Milk icing http://www.raspberricupcakes.com/2010/05/milo-cupcakes-with-condensed-milk-icing.html. Secondly, it is extremely misleading to anyone reading this post to use my pictures with an entirely different recipe to what was used to bake the cupcakes in the photograph. Lastly, you have used my images to submit this post to Foodgawker in order to drive more traffic to your blog, which is not only misleading to anyone coming from Foodgawker, but against the community rules. I put a lot of time and effort into baking, photographing and writing my blog posts, please give credit where credit is due.

    1. Hi Steph!
      I am so sorry! I didn't realize that I wasn't allowed to use them since I saw them on flickr and didn't even realize there were recipes for them on your site.
      On flickr it just said to credit the photographer which I thought I did. Once again I'm very very sorry! I in now way wanted to upset you!
      I have to admit I'm not always good when it comes to food photography so that's why I was looking for photos of chocolate cupcakes on flickr that I thought I was allowed to use.
      I hope you can forgive me,
      Olivia Xx

  4. I am a long-time reader of Raspberri Cupcakes and this is the second time I've seen photos of hers on Foodgawker lead back to your site. Using a tiny font hidden at the bottom and not even linking back to her post is NOT the correct way to attribute content. Either way it is misleading and breaching copyright to submit other people's photos on Foodgawker and passing it off as yours. If you've truly made these cupcakes then surely it's not that hard to take your own photo of YOUR food and posting that instead instead of using other's people work.
