Ingredients

  • For the buttercream frosting

Directions

Share

With a towering swirl of chocolate buttercream on top of fluffy chocolate sponge, they are the perfect treat for a party, bake sale, or just to have with a cup of tea. If you don’t have a piping bag, just swirl the buttercream on top with a spoon.

Tip: For a citrus twist, add the zest of 1 orange to the cupcake batter, substituting 2 tbsp orange juice for the water. Add 1 tsp of Valencian orange extract to the frosting mixture.

Steps

1
Done

Preheat the oven to gas 4, 180°C, fan 160°C. Line a 12-hole muffin tin with cupcake cases and set aside. Sift the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda into a large bowl.

2
Done

In a separate bowl, use an electric hand whisk to cream together the butter and caster sugar, until pale and fluffy, then crack in the egg. Whisk to combine, then add the yogurt and whisk again. Add the sifted flour mixture along with 2 tbsp water and mix gently until just combined.

3
Done

Divide the mixture between the cupcake cases and bake for 25 mins, until risen and a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean. Remove from the oven and leave to cool in the tin for 10 mins, then transfer to a wire rack and leave to cool completely.

4
Done

Meanwhile, make the frosting. Beat the butter, icing sugar and cocoa powder together using an electric hand whisk, until pale and fluffy.

5
Done

Spoon the icing into a piping bag fitted with a star nozzle and pipe the icing onto the top of each cooled cupcake. Sprinkle with the chocolate vermicelli, if using.
