Chocolate Mud Cake

chocolate mud cupcake

Did I tell you guys that my boiboi loves to read my cook books?? At times he will dictate tell me to make those stuff for him. Sometimes he will help me in the kitchen by reading to me the ingredients and amount needed. Well, I think its better this way rather than having him messing stirring up in the kitchen hahaha... Anyway, these cupcakes which graced the cover of 500 Cupcakes & Muffins caught the attention of my boiboi ever since I've gotten this book. I've promised him the longest time ever to make these and I finally did.

These cupcakes needless to say is soft with a gooey centre but mine did not flow out cos I've slightly overbaked them. They still tasted good nevertheless.

Chocolate Mud Cake

300g plain choc chips
300g unsalted butter
5 eggs
115g caster sugar
115g self-raising flour
2 tbsp cocoa powder for dusting

Preheat oven to 160C. Place 12 paper case in muffin tray.

In a medium bowl set over a pan of gently simmering water, melt choc and butter together, stirring well. Leave to cool a little.

Beat eggs and sugar in a large bowl until pale and thick. Fold the flour into the egg mixture. Stir in melted choc and butter.

Spoon batter into paper cases and bake for 20 mins (my oven required less than this, so keep a watch over your oven).

The cupcakes will be soft and gooey in texture and appearance. Remove tin from oven and cool for 5 mins, then remove cupcakes and serve swiftly, dusted with cocoa powder.

that is almost the same recipe as Nigella's brownie, without the walnut.

And i just made a batch for the wife and daughter.

You know what, i think doing it in the cup is much better.
