Chocolate cupcakes with jam ~ 果酱巧克力蛋糕

 

This is a soft and moist chocolate cupcake which will augur well for breakfast or to enjoy at any time of the day.  I added jam inside the cake by poking a 'tunnel' into the cake and slowly scoop the jam in  to fill up the tunnel.  You can use any flavour of jam according to your preference but no matter what flavour or brand of jam you add in, the cake will taste real good!
