Cupcake with Chocolate centre

I am a big fan of chocolate. The other day I was wondering what to have for tea break which is light and sweet. I thought of having a chocolate but what I really wanted was something more than chocolate. So, I ended up making these chocolate cupcakes. I love chocolate fondant but its quite difficult to make especially the melted centre is quite difficult to get right, so I used a trick (you will find that in the method below).  Its simple, easy and bite-size so you can have them guilt free as you won't be consuming a lot of calories (unless you eat all of them together!!). Here goes  the recipe..


4 pieces of dark chocolate
3 tbsp of self raising flour
2 tbsp of sugar
2 eggs (beaten)
20 gm of melted butter
pinch of baking soda
1 tsp vanilla essence


Add the butter and sugar to the beaten eggs and beat the mixture till it turns into a smooth batter. Now add the flour slowly to the mixture and continue to beat. Add the vanilla essence and the baking soda and continue to beat until the mixture in a homogeneous and there are no lumps remaining.

Roughly chop the chocolates into small pieces. Don't worry if they are not even as they are going to melt anyway!!

Butter the ramekins and pour the mixture into it till only quarter of the ramekins are filled.  Now add the chopped chocolate in to the center of the mixture then pour the cake mix on top of it so that the chocolate is completely covered. Don't fill the ramekins more than 3/4 of its capacity. Now place them in oven and bake for 15-20 minutes at 200 degree Celsius. Check with a skewer by poking in the cake. If it comes out clean (well you might see some melted chocolate) then its cooked. Serve hot with tea or coffee. Enjoy!!
