Recipe (makes 65 Mini Muffins; about 25-30 of them Cupcakes)
- 100 g Milk Chocolate Chunks
- 125 g slightly salted butter
- 1 ½ dl caster sugar
- 2 eggs
- 4 ½ dl plain flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 ½ dl whole milk
- 1 tablespoon vanilla sugar
- 3 tablespoons cacao
- 100 g Milk Chocolate Chips
- 2 cups icing/confectioners’ sugar, sifted
- 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
- 2 tablespoons whole milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract with seeds
Preheat the oven to 175 degrees C.
Place the paper cases on two baking sheets.
Stir the sugar and butter until fluffy in a bowl.
Add the eggs and continue to whisk.
Pour the vanilla sugar, baking powder, cacao and flour into the bowl and whisk a bit.
Add the milk and continue mixing for a couple of minutes more until the mixture is smooth.
Pour the milk chocolate chunks into the mixture and stir until everything is just incorporated.
Pour the mixture into the paper cases with help of a teaspoon.
Bake in the middle of the oven for about 12-13 minutes.
Allow to cool before you put the frosting on.
Frosting and Cupcakes:
Beat the icing/confectioners’ sugar and butter in a freestanding electric mixer with a paddle attachment (or use a handheld electric whisk) on medium-slow speed until the mixture comes together and is well mixed. Turn the mixer down to slow speed.
Combine the milk and vanilla extract in a separate bowl, then add to the butter mixture a little at a time. Once all the milk has been incorporated, turn the mixer up to high speed. Beat until the frosting is light and fluffy, at least 5 minutes. The longer the frosting is beaten, the fluffier and lighter it becomes. Finally, pour the chocolate chips into the frosting and stir until everything is just incorporated.
Pipe the frosting on top of the cupcakes and decorate with an English flag!
Happy Mini Cupcake Making!
