Chocolate Brownie Cupcakes

I haven’t shared a cakey recipe in ages so here’s a new one. Chocolate brownie cupcakes are currently one of our favourites, they’re quick and easy to make and taste great. The recipe makes 12 cakes.

Ingredients:

  • 200g dark chocolate
  • 90g butter
  • 200g dark brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1tsp vanilla extract
  • 140g plain flour

Method:

Preheat the oven to 180c / 350f / gas mark 4 and place 12 cake cases in a muffin tin.

Place the chocolate and butter in a saucepan and heat gently until melted, stir until smooth and leave to cool for 5mins.

Put the eggs, sugar and vanilla extract in a bowl and beat until light and smooth.

Stir in the flour, then add the melted chocolate mixture and stir until combined.

Spoon the mixture in to the cake cases.

Bake in the centre of the oven for 20 – 25 minutes, the cakes should be cooked on top but still have a slight wobble.

Remove from the oven and leave to cool in the tin for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack and leave to cool completely (although they do taste great whilst still warm too!)
