Here comes a new creation! We where suposed to be having an italian dinner tomorrow, but things don't allways go as planed right?
I have a friend that makes the best pasta I have ever eaten, so she will be in charge of making pasta, my sister will go for the antipasti and I will be making dessert! So here is my italian contribution for our future dinner:
I'm still looking for the perfect chocolate cupcake recipe. This one was great with the flavour, but the texture didn't quite convince me:
- 110 gr unsalted butter, softened
- 110 gr light brown sugar
- 110 gr self-rising flour
- 1 tbsp cocoa powder
- 1 tbsp espresso coffee powder (I used two table spoons of already made espresso coffee)
- 2 medium eggs
- 1-2 tbsp milk (I used 4 and one of olive oil)
Preheat oven to 180ºC. Beat all the cake ingredients together in a mixing bowl, until smooth and creamy.
Spoon the mixture into the paper cases and bake in the oven for 18-20 minutes. Remove from the oven and leave to cool completely.
- 400 ml mascarpone cheese
- 4 tbsp icing sugar
- Cocoa powder
Whisk the cheese and icing sugar together, spoon into a piping bag and go crazy! I tryed roses (which have such a bad look) because I have never been able to make them, ever!
Then sprinkle cocoa powder on top and ENJOY!!!!
