Molten-Centred Chocolate Cupcakes Recipe.

I tried a new recipe from the yummy 'Big Book of Baking'.

These cupcakes are perfect as a little something for an Easter gathering, for a chocoholic or any woman who needs a small 'pick me up'. The consistency of the cake is lovely and light....and then as you bite into the middle, a little melted gooey chocolate delights your mouth....NOM NOM NOM!

You will need:
  • 55g /2oz of soft margarine
  • 55g / 2oz caster sugar / superfine sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 85g / 3oz self - raising flour
  • 1 tbsp coca powder
  • 55g / 2oz plain chocolate
  • Icing sugar/Confectioners' Sugar for dusting.
 This makes 8 servings.


Pre-heat the oven to 190c, 375f or Gas mark 5. Put eight paper cases on a baking try or cupcake tray.

Put the margarine, caster sugar, egg, flour and cocoa powder into a large bowl. Beat together until smooth using a whisk or an electric whisk.

Once smooth, fill half of each paper case. Break your chocolate evenly into 8 pieces and gently push each bit into the middle of the individual cakes. Cover with the remaining cake mixture.

Bake for about 20 minutes or until well risen and springy to touch. Leave them to cool for 2-3 minutes, dust with icing sugar and serve.

If you don't want to serve them straight away the consistency of the chocolate centre will not be as 'melted'. We ate some a few hours later and we found them to be of a slightly gooey chewy consistency (which is just as good in my eyes!).

I hope you enjoy your weekend. It's Ians birthday tomorrow and I'm quaking in my boots! A present that I ordered hasn't arrived yet . Hopefully it will turn up today!
