chocolate cup cake recipechocolate cup cake recipe | easy chocolate cupcake recipe | birthday cupcakes with step by step photo and video recipe. there are several ways cakes are prepared which is mainly differentiated with the flavours and ingredients added to it. one such variation is chocolate cake which is prepared in a mini version as cupcakes. this recipe has a basic chocolate frosting or icing which makes it more attractive and presentable.

in this recipe i have showed a basic version of chocolate cup cake and u can use my previous chocolate cake recipe for the same. however the frosting or icing is very new and i have used butter and sugar mixture as compared to cream and sugar mixture. moreover i am not that comfortable with cake decorations and icing and hence i had to repeat frosting part several times. the key thing for a smooth and creamy icing is hand blending with the correct amount of milk added to it. otherwise it may turn either thick or thin in consistency. as a matter of fact i was more inclined towards the creamy vanilla frosting, but my husband insisted with a chocolate buttercream frosting / icing. previously on several occasions i had shared the creamy white icing and thought of having a different one this time.

furthermore i would like to add few tips and suggestions while preparing the chocolate cup cake recipe. firstly, and more importantly never eye ball while filling the cupcake cup or liners. use a spoon or scoop and fill it equally so that once the cakes are baked, come out in a equal size and shape. secondly, and in general the cup cakes have to be baked at the center of the oven. you can also use a cooker to bake the cupcakes only if you have small cup cake holder. also make sure to have proper stand which places the cupcake at the center of cooker. lastly, while frosting the cupcake, ensure that the icing is spread across all the visible surface of cupcake. this will help to retain the moisture of cake while refrigerating or preserving it.
