Chocolate Cupcakes and a sweet moment to remember


Time flies, and just like that I didn't realise how these last six months came and went. So many things happened during this little time. I remember the day very clearly when my mum was coming to be with me for sometime. I was so excited and happy when I saw her coming through the doors, I was jumping with joy and happiness. She was here for the most important event of my life. I was so glad that she came and was with me for the birth of my baby. With the baby, my mum and my better half, time passed by like a blur and now I feel so sad as she will be leaving this weekend.


Now that I have sat down to write this post I am reliving all those countless moments of pure joy and fun we had together. This post won’t finish if I try to pen down all of then but one such sweet moment was when we celebrated her birthday. It was always she who baked my birthday cake when I was growing up and this time I thought of baking one for her. I can’t tell you how nervous I was, especially because I was baking for her birthday. But she kept telling me keep it simple and gave me enough confidence so that I can finish my cupcakes. I made very simple chocolate cupcakes just like she wanted without the frosting on top and she loved it!



2 eggs

100 gm plain flour

100 gm brown sugar

100 gm butter

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

3 tbsp Cadbury's cocoa powder



Melt the butter and add the sugar to it and start beating it. Add the eggs and continue beating till the mixture turns pale yellow and smooth. Mix all the dry ingredients together in a separate bowl then take one table spoon at a time and add into the wet mixture and keep beating. Continue this process till you have finished adding all the dry mix to the cake mix.


Preheat the oven to 180 degree C. Place the muffin cases in the the muffin tray and pour the cake mix on the muffin cases with a tablespoon. Bake for 20 minutes or till the cupcakes are done. Once done take them out of the oven and let them cool. you can do any frosting you like but I kept it simple and served it just like that.
