These chocolate cupcakes are delicious with chocolate icing and perfect for Easter with these cute mini eggs on top.

Method

  1. Preheat the oven 190°C (170°C fan, gas mark 5). Line a muffin tin with 12-14 cases.

  2. Mix together the cocoa powder, flour and baking powder and sift.

  3. Place all the ingredients together in a mixing bowl and beat together with a wooden spoon until well mixed. Spoon the mixture into the muffin tin.

  4. Bake the cupcakes on the middle shelf of your oven for 15 - 20 minutes, until the cupcakes are cooked throughout and spring to touch. Cool on a wire tray.

  5. For the chocolate buttercream, place all ingredients in a mixing bowl and beat until smooth. Either spread or pipe over the cakes creating a nest effect and decorate with Easter eggs.

    My 7 year old son managed to bake these by himself! They're so tasty and easy to make.
