Recipe - Chocolate Cupcakes

This is the recipe for the chocolate cupcakes that were served at the party last weekend. I'm not much of a chocolate/sweets type of person but I must say that these were ace!


Cakes (makes 18-24)
6oz self raising flour
6oz caster sugar
6oz margarine
1-2 oz cocoa
3 eggs

Icing (enough to cover 18-24 cakes
1 ½ oz margarine
2 table spoons cocoa
4oz icing sugar
1 ½ table spoons evaporated milk
½ teaspoon vanilla extract


Preheat the over to 180 degrees.

Put the caster sugar and margarine into a large bowl and mix together. Add in the eggs, mix again Add the flour and cocoa and mix again.

Put about an ounze of mixture in each cupcake case.

Place in the oven for 10 minutes until they are cooked. (if you gentle press the top it should rise again)

Melt the margarine and cocoa together. Stir in the evaporated milk and vanilla extract. Stir in the sugar. If the the mix is too thick, add a little more evaporated milk.

Put icing on cake with a pallet knife

Note: Wait for the cakes to cool before making the icing as it will set shortly after making it.
