I baked this batch of cup cakes in my newly bought Bajaj OTG last month. In fact I inaugurated with this lovely bake .And my first attempt was a success ,so I really love my OTG. If you are a chocolate lover you will definitely love this deadly cupcake.I adapted this recipe from Joy of baking, where she has explained step wise easily.And the picture looked so inviting I had to try these beauties.And since it is Christmas atmosphere in the air I posted it today.Wanted to post it last month itself but could not compile the recipe because of other commitment,may be it was preserved for today.
flour(maida)-175 gms(1 1/3 cups)
gms (1/2 cup)
Butter-1/2 tsp to grease the tray
- Boil the
water and mix the cocoa powder,dissolve it completely,cool it and keep it
- Take a
wide mixing bowl and beat the butter until creamy.
- Add granulated
sugar and beat it until smooth and creamy.
- Scrape down
the sides with the spatula and add vanilla essence and mix it.
- Add 1
egg at a time and beat it further.
- Scrape down
the sides whenever required and now add
the flour mixture little by little and beat until it is only incorporated.
- Add the cooled cocoa
mixture and mix it further until smooth.
- Grease the
muffin tray and arrange the liners,fill the muffin liners with the batter only till 2/3 .
- Pre heat
the oven at 190 deg for 10- 15 minutes
and bake it for 16-17 minutes at 190 degC.
- Remove it from oven and place it on a wire rack to cool,in case you are doing frosting.
preheat the oven just before you start mixing the batter.
But since I'm little slow I preheat just when the batter is about to be ready,may be when I
start adding the dry ingredients,You may preheat as per your
speed and need.
Pre heat is very important in bakes.
I used the electric beater to beat the batter.
Do not over bake the cupcakes or else it will become dry.
Keep checking whenever you keep anything to bake,timings and temperature always varies.
Prick at the centre of the cupcake with a toothpick to check whether it is baked.
You may also frost the cake with icing once it is cooled.
