Anyone for Cake?

Daughter has a bit of a cupcake fetish…don’t we all? After a few mishaps (some recipes just don’t work, do they?) Success!

Raspberry Chocolate Cupcakes:
Makes 12:
125g plain chocolate
125ml milk
30g cocoa powder, sifted
125g butter
110g castor sugar
2 eggs
125g plain flour
1tsp baking powder
Glaze:
400g plain chocolate
125ml double cream
raspberries 
Oven 325Β° (160Β°)
Place chocolate, milk and cocoa powder in pan, stir over low heat until chocolate melted and smooth, remove from heat and allow to cool.
Beat butter and sugar with electric whisk until fluffy, add eggs one at a time, still beating to combine. Sift flour and baking powder into small bowl then add flour and chocolate mixtures to butter mixture, combine.
Spoon into cake cases, bake for about 35 minutes or until skewer comes out clean, leave to cool on rack.
Glaze: Melt chocolate and cream over pan of simmering water. Spread over cupcakes and decorate with raspberries. Serve with whipped cream.

Go on, you know you want to…they’re gorgeous!
