Christmas Baking: Dark Chocolate Cupcakes | Blogmas Day 18

Oh Hi!

Today I thought we would bake Dark Chocolate Cupcakes together!

You will need 4 tbsp of cacao powder,
1 dl boiling water,
3 dl flour,
2 tsp baking powder,
2 tsp vanilla sugar,
100 g butter,
1 ½ dl sugar,
2 eggs,
200 g dark chocolate

This recipe makes roughly 15 cupcakes in big cupcake cases! (About 20 in regular sized cupcake cases!)

Preheat your oven to 175°C!

First you want to heat 1 dl of water in the microwave. You then want to add 4 tbsp of cacao powder and mix it until it doesn't have any lumps in it! Then set it aside to cool.

Next you want to add 3 dl of flour, 2 tsp or baking powder and 2 tsp of vanilla sugar to a bowl. Mix it together!

You then want to warm up 100 g of butter. It shouldn't be melted but a little softer so it's easier to mix it!

Add the butter and 1 ½ dl of sugar into another bowl and wisk it together. You can use an electric handwhisk or a kitchenaid!

Add 2 eggs to the mixture and whisk that too!

You then want to add the flour mixture you made earlier! Don't worry if the batter gets a little thick, it will work out once you add the cacao water later!

Now you want to chop the dark chocolate of your choice to smaller pieces, it doesn't have to be really small pieces but just chop it up! Then add the chocolate gradually and mix it together!

Add the cacao water you made at the very start and mix it well with a spoon! At first you'll feel like the cacao water won't mix but don't worry, it will!

You then want to add the batter into cupcake cases and pop them into the oven for about 20 minutes! I found that 20 minutes is perfect for the cupcakes but your oven might be different so after 15 minutes you want to check them!

When your cupcakes have cooled down you want to make icing. To make icing just add icing sugar and water in a bowl and mix it! I also added some green food coloring but that's optional! 
I iced half of the cupcakes and the other half I left plain.

Then you can add some sprinkles on top or whatever you want! Get creative!

And that's you done!
These cupcakes are extremely tasty with the dark chocolate and they are super easy to make even though it might seem like it's a lot of steps! Just give it a try, you won't be disappointed!♥
