The occasion: my workmate son's birthday.
With sourcream being used, these cakes were super moist, and even having it in the icing, the sourcream taste was not too overwhelming, they just need to be regridgerated.
The icing is really glossy, so makes them seem abit.. poshy :) hehe
These were so simple to make! So here is the recipe..
50g butter (at room temp)
115g dark brown sugar
2 large eggs
115g plain flour
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
25g cocoa powder
125ml sour cream
125g plain chocolate
2 tbsp caster sugar
150ml sour cream
preheat oven to 175
place paper baking cases into muffin tray
put margarine, sugar, eggs, flour, bicarbonate of soda & cocoa powder in a large bowl and using electric hand whisk, beat together until just smooth
using metal spoon, fold in the sour cream, spoon mixture into paper cases
bake for 18-20 minutes
transfer to wire rack to cool
to making icing, break up chocolate into heatproof bowl. set over simmering water & heat until melted, stirring occasionally. remove from heat allow to cool slightly, then whisk in sugar & sour cream until well combined. spread icing over tops of cupcakes and leave to set in refridgerator before serving.
