Chocolate cupcake recipe for zoe + things i have my eye on.

OOOH todays saved items on asos.Il update to say if i actually buy any of these.

*BOUGHT. Bargain if its still instock.Plus this tshirt is fairtrade. so its very good for the soul.


sorry i didnt reply sooner Zoe.

my recipe is
(for decoration i just use edible glitter, food colouring and mini marshmallows)

jennirisms are written in italics.

(lazy but tastes good.)
110g butter at room temperature
110g caster sugar
110g plain flour (for chocolate cakes half amount of flour and use bornville coaco instead of the other half of flour.- you find it in the hot chocolate isle, but it has to be coaco, not hot chocolate)
2 tsp baking powder
2 eggs (medium)
1 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 180C/ 350F / Gas 4. (do this first :D)

Line a muffin tin with paper cases.

Put the butter and sugar in a bowl; and beat until pale and fluffy (or bung in microwave till it melts then stir like i do)

Sift the flour, coaco, and baking powder into the bowl.

Beat the eggs and vanilla and add to the bowl. Beat until just combined. (i use more like 3tbs of vanilla because i love vanilla)

Spoon the mixture into the paper cases.

Bake for 18 to 20 minutes until risen, golden and firm to the touch.

Cool in the tin for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Makes 12 cupcakes (or 9 bigger ones)
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time 18 to 20 minutes


MELT SOME BUTTER IN MICROWAVE + ADD VANILLA ESSANCE + FOOD COLOURING. then add icing sugar. (add sugar till its kinda icing consistancy.) it should form a sexy slightly solid yummy buttery vanila icing.

when cakes are 100% cold (or icing melts) add icing then decorate
