Mini Chocolate Cupcake

A very teeny weeny cupcake for a little hand.Its pretty enough to capture his attention,yet small enough to eat with minimal mess.My poor little prince,non-stop called me mummy!!mummy!!while I clicked a picture of this mini cupcake.He even can't stop himself to be patience and started to grabbed one while I took picture.hehehe :)Very clever fellow.I realized he grown a bit until his hand reached the kitchen work-top to grab the cake.

I baked a cake using this recipe before oops.. sorry steamed before it called Steamed Moist Chocolate Cake but the owner of the recipe,herself said it could be baked too.So gave a tried.For the first time I used my mini silicone cupcake to baked these cakes and significantly these mini cupcakes hold an enormous amount of creative potential which never stopped me from baking and thinking more about it.  Mini Chocolate Cake

  • 113g castor sugar
  • 100ml  evaporated milk 
  • 1 eggs, lightly beaten with a folk
  • 1/2 cup of plain flour

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Line mini muffin tin with a dozen cupcake papers.

(B) In the meantime, sift the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and baking soda into a large mixing bowl.

4. Once (A) is cooled, add the beaten eggs in and mix thoroughly. Finally, pour the eggy mixture into the flour and stir till well combined. The final batter should be runny.
