food joy..

I actually wanted to bake one large cake fully frosted for the last Father's Day. But instead, I settled for plain cupcakes without frosting for desserts. You see, my family just don't quite fancy cakes with frosting. The guys at home just love their cakes plain. For the chocolate cupcakes, I basically used the Devils' Food cake recipe. Nope! It's not the cake~ food for the devils! This I guess is one of the many classic and basic American cakes. Get it?

I baked some of remaining mixture into 5nos of ice-cream cones. Needed to use that butter cream that's been idling in my fridge for quite some time now. But remembered to give enough allowance from the top rim of the cone so as not to get overflows. I really hate overflows cause it messes up the whole cupcakes.

Chocolate Cupcakes

300g flour
350g sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup butter
2 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs

Measure out everything but the eggs directly into your mixer bowl. Mix on low speed just until incorporated. Beat on high speed for 2 minutes. Add eggs, beat on high speed again for 2 minutes.

Scoop mixture into papercups. If your using ice-cream cone, make sure to give about 3/4inch allowance below the cone rim. Bake for 15-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Oven temp may varies. I used 170 deg C range.

Let cool slightly in the pan then transfer on a rack to cool completely before frosting.

I really need to say thank you to MamaFami @ http://mamafami.fotopages.com for the recent Cheese Buns recipe she posted on her fp. I thought that was such a simple bread recipe that I decided to try it last Tuesday. You see, I never have much confidence in bread-making. It turned out wonderful to my family's liking I must say. I made a slight adjustment by sprinkling the top with chopped rosemary and garlic spread before drizzling with mozzarella and cheddar mix. Mama tak marah kan? Thank you to the original creator of this recipe too, NoorMasri.
