Vanilla Cupcakes with Choc Glaze


These cupcakes were baked in a muffin pan but devoid of  paper liners as the chocolate glaze would drip down the the sides of the cakes.  If you use a paper liner, the chocolate glaze will drip onto the liner  and will look a bit messy.  I suppose these cuppies with the choco glaze and coloured sprinkles will be a hit with the kids during this festive season!








Recipe for Vanilla Cupcakes with Choco Glaze  香草杯子蛋糕

    Ingredients

    • 195 gm plain flour
    • 1.1/2 tsp baking powder
    • 113 gm unsalted butter
    • 1/4 tsp salt (omit if using salted butter)
    • 130 gm caster sugar
    • 3 large eggs
    • 1.1/2 tsp vanilla
    • 1/4 cup milk
    Chocolate Glaze
    • 120 gm /4 oz cooking chocolate
    • 42 gm butter
    • 1.1/2 Tbsp golden syrup 

    Method 
    1. Melt all the above ingredients in a big bowl  over a pot of simmering water.  Mix well, remove from heat and let it thicken for about 10 mins.  Pour the mixture into a measuring cup.

    Method for the cupcakes
    1. Sift the flour with the baking powder and salt  OR just whisk these in a mixing bowl and set aside.
    2. Beat butter, then add in the sugar and beat till light and creamy.
    3. Add in eggs one at a time, mix well.  If the mixture curdles, it doesn't matter for the mixture will smoothen out once the dry ingredients are added in.
    4. Fold in the flour alternatively with the milk, starting with flour and ending with flour.
    5. Use an ice cream scoop to scoop out the batter into the lightly greased muffin pan.
    6. Bake in a preheated oven @ 180 deg.C for 15 to 16 mins. till a skewer inserted comes out clean.
    7. Leave the cakes to cool in the pan for 10 mins. before removing onto a wire rack to cool completely.
    8. Pour the melted chocolate over the cupcakes, sprinkle on some coloured sprinkles as desired.
    9. Yield :  12 cupcakes
