Yeyy, finally I did beautiful and super delicious cupcakes! I’m not that good at baking, I’m still practicing and I do get better and better. I usually think that making cupcakes seems so hard or a lot of work. But now I just think it’s super fun, specially to pipe. I can bet you that you will see more cupcake recipes coming up here haha.

This time I made chocolate cupcakes with chocolate bites inside and a super good frosting with blackberry. You need to try these! The chocolate cake is so soft and the frosting is so fluffy and creamy, you will love them.

YOU NEED: 
12 cupcakes. 

Chocolate cupcake:
4 dl of flour
2 dl sugar
4 tsp baking powder
2 tsp vanilla sugar
A pinch of salt
1 dl cocoa powder
1 egg
3 dl milk
1 dl neutral oil
100 gram dark chocolate, chopped

Blackberry frosting: 
3 dl blackberries
2 tbsp lemon juice
225 gram butter, room temp (needs to be very soft)
1/2 tsp salt
9 dl powdered sugar, sifted (more if needed)

Blackberries for garnish

DO THIS: 

  1. Chocolate cupcakes: Set the oven on 175 C. Line a muffin pan with baking cases. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, vanilla sugar, salt and cocoa in a bowl. Mix so that everything is mixed properly.
  2. Beat egg, milk and oil for about 1 minute. Mix in the flour mixture together with the egg mixture, stirring until smooth.
  3. Stir in the chopped chocolate to the batter. Divide the batter evenly into the baking cases and bake in the middle of the oven for about 15-20 minutes.
  4. Blackberry frosting: Put the blackberries and lemon juice in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, and stir constantly until blackberries have become soft enough to mash. Cook for about 7 minutes. It will look like blackberry jam.
  5. Remove the mixture from the heat. Place a strainer over a small bowl and push the puree though, leaving seeds and large chunks behind. Allow mixture to cool completely before using.
  6. Beat the butter in a bowl on medium-speed until completely smooth, scraping down the sides when needed, about 4 minutes. Should be fluffy and very light colour. Add in the blackberry sauce and beat until completely combined.
  7. Add in the powdered sugar, 2 dl at a time, on low speed. Once all of the sugar has been added, add in salt and beat for another 2 minutes.
  8. Spoon the frosting into a piping bag. Pipe the frosting onto each cupcake. Top with blackberry!

ENJOY!!! :)
