I use to always fear baking till I finally decided nothing is impossible, if rest can bake why can’t I :). A struggling mom who is always occupied to keep the kids happy all the time is what I am these days. I started with few basic cakes and cookies recipes. My kids love my M&M cookies and chocolate chip cookies the most along with the Oats & Prunes Cake. The other day my daughter came to me and said she wants to eat some nice chocolate cupcakes, when I told her that I don’t know how to bake real nice cupcakes she said Maa please call up Riana’s mom (her best friend in school) and take her recipe, she makes awesome cupcakes. My daughter had enjoyed her cupcakes on Riana’s birthday last year and the impact of those cupcakes on my daughter was so high that she till date recalls them.
What was my next step – simple, pick up my mobile and call up my Riana’s mom for the delicious cupcake recipe. Thank you Anu for sharing the recipe with me, it was a double bonus, one I got the recipe and with the recipe I also got some nice colorful paper bake cups :).
The original recipe is with instant coffee and but since we making these for our kids, coffee was smartly replaced with cocoa powder. The result was nice, brown, spongy cupcakes. I was too excited with the cupcakes being baked nicely in my oven because I had my due share of baking cupcake failures in the past and this was one BIG thing for me…lol!!!! Will experiment with this recipe by adding fruits or nuts to it next time.
The result was both my kids loved it and enjoyed the cupcakes, to make them more interesting I topped those with few chocolate chips and colored sprinklers. Next time will try my hands on topping them with some nice chocolate icing…..after all I can BAKE now !!!!!
So no more wait, lets jump to the recipe, which is so easy and at the same time delicious……
Enjoy these delicious Chocolate cupcakes with your kids and family :)!
