Mocha Cupcakes - the deadly way

I have a little confession. I have no clue of what day it is, I don't know what to do on a daily basis and I have been slacking horribly on trying to find a job. I've done a little work around the house, but other than that I've just been killing everyone's diets by cooking and baking whenever I felt for it in search of perfect recipes and kitchen classics. These horribly delicious cupcakes keep popping out of my oven. They faithfully refuse to go wrong and when topped with cream, caramel and chocolate they scream for attention. "Eat me! Eat me!" Ah, I can almost taste the fluffy moist cake with the sweet frosting and feel the sticky caramel on my fingers. I'll have to resist licking my fingers while I stare at the cupcakes again.


Mocha Cupcakes
Yields 12 cupcakes

225 grams flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
25 grams cocoa
150 grams butter
300 grams caster sugar
3 eggs
1 teaspoon mocha essence or paste
250 ml milk

1. Sift the flour together with the baking soda and cocoa.
2. Cream the butter with the sugar until light and fluffy.
3. Beat the eggs through the butter one at a time and mix until smooth in between.
4. Add the mocha paste and mix again.
5. Beat the milk and flour through the batter alternately, in about 3 additions each.
6. Bake in a preheated oven of 180 degrees Celsius or 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 12-15 minutes.
7. To decorate, use frosting in an icing bag to make a big swirl and top it with caramel sauce and chocolate shavings. For my cupcakes I used a store-bought vanilla cream frosting.


I apologize to everyone who lives in my house and is on a diet (which is basically everyone). Please look forward to even more sweet treats in the future, while I continue to fail at finding a job. Look on the bright side: I've been looking up how to make us more healthy treats! I'm sure I'll get to making those soon after I make some fruitcakes, Schwarzwalder Kirschtorte and something that involves the jar of caramel sauce I have left.

Thank you for having me and my deadly cupcakes!
