W ot better can we have after a perfect long awaited long weekend !!!! Two consecutive weekends …Made the most of it… enjoying the perfect British Sunshine Sun, swishing bits thro the tele catching glimpses of the Royal Wedding , BBQ , Riverside Walk , settling for hours by the beachIsland with a palm tree , Picture time all the while to capture the right moments and have them in memories..
This lovely cuppy cake was a sure treat for H  for two thing… Firstly for being very thoughtful to pick a baking book for me.. Secondly he picked the book I had in mind and never disclosed it to him… Tat was truly telepathy.. The book was a Hummingbird Bakery cook book . I had read about their Red Velvet cake and had bookmarked it for working on it a bit later … H brings this book for me 3 days after… and I was just dumbstruckSurprised smile….. A smile was struck all the while and beaming even thro the darkness…

This cup cake actually uses a Devil’s Food cake base. Cocoa powder in it gives the right punch . Do not over mix as it would make the sponge heavy. Sponge should be light and moist .
INGREDIENTS :

Plain Flour100g
Cocoa Powder20g
Caster sugar140g
Baking Powder1.5 Tsp.
Unsalted Butter40g
Whole Milk120 ml
Large Egg1 Nos
Vanilla Extract1 Tsp.

DIRECTIONS:

  • Preheat the oven to 170 C. Line the muffin tins with papercases.
  • Bring together flour , coco powder, baking powder and butter and beat on a slow speed until we get a sandy consistency & well combined.
  • Whisk the wet ingredients together – Milk, egg & vanilla extract in a jug.
  • Slowly pour half the amount of wet ingredients into the dry , beat with a handheld electric whisk at a high speed until we get rid of all the lumps . Turn down the mixer to a slower speed and slowly incorporate the remaining  wet mixture.Continue to mix for a couple of minutes until a smooth mix is obtained. DO NOT OVER MIX.
  • Spoon the mixture into the papercases until 2/3rd full and bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 min. A skewer inserted in the centre should come out neat.
