Chocolate Fudge Cakes... Chocolaciously Gorgeous!!!

This is melting... luscious... mood-enhancingly good! It is immensely chocolatey and not so rich. I am talking about pure all-encompassing bliss. That is what chocolates are to many, though my liking would differ on this account because of not being too much of a chocolate-y person. But the rest of my household is, so that is the reason for this post. After all, whatever you hog, how much ever you slog, there is always  room for chocolate cupcakes!






This is a very quick and easy recipe that does not need much preparation except for bringing all the ingredients to the room temperature before starting with the mixing.

INGREDIENTS:
Butter, Softened - 150 grams
Golden Caster Sugar - 150 grams (I brought it down to 125 grams because I always prefer cakes, less sweet)
Medium Eggs, Beaten - 3
Self Raising Flour - 125 grams
Cocoa Powder - 25 grams
Milk - 1 tablespoon

METHOD:
Preheat the oven to 190 degrees C.
Line a 12 hole muffin tray with paper cases.
Sift the flour and the cocoa powder together and keep aside. (The biggies recommend sifting 3 times, but do  it at least once:)
Take a mixing bowl and cream the butter and the sugar with an electric beater till they are well mixed.
In a separate bowl, beat the eggs.
Pour in the eggs into the butter-sugar mix and beat further till they are well mixed.
FOLD IN the flour-cocoa mix in batches with a wooden spoon.
Add the milk and mix well.


Spoon the mix into the prepared cases, filling them two-thirds full.
Bake for 20 minutes till they are well risen and spongy to touch.
Cool on a wire rack.
They keep well for 3 days in an airtight container.


These cakes are the basic version and can be further worked on if you are thinking of icing and decorating. The chocolate fudge icing work great on them, which can be piped using a nozzled piping bag:)
Icing or not... decoration or not... these cakes are for those days when you have to usher a little something out of your kitchen and beam at what you have conjured up! YES!


Chocolaciously gorgeous:)))




 Lots of love and happiness:)
