My naked cuppies.........

Some of you must be wondering why am I MIA for a while... hehe... my PC was infected with virus lor...only managed to download the pics today.

These were naked cupcakes (before dressed up). I baked them last Saturday for elder ds, Brandon's chalet gathering with his ex-classmates on Sunday. I am going to dress them up nicely with the sugarpaste flowers and leaves contributed by Lee Lee. So nice of her! Thanks Lee. The children were so delighted with the cupcakes.

I made 2 different cupcake bases - Vanilla Cupcakes and Chocolate Muffins.

The Vanilla Cupcakes are really nice. The recipe is shared by one of my forum pal, Cuen, in IK. The texture is really soft and moist. I have slightly modified the recipe to suit my taste.

The Chocolate ones are nice too. Recipe shared by Peony, a forum pal in IK and M4M.

I have posted Peony's recipe here for your easy ref. For more details, please check it out at her blog.

Chocolate Chip Muffins (Recipe by Peony, M4M & IK)

1 ¾ cup plain flour
1 tsp bicarbonate soda
¾ cup castor sugar ( too sweet, shd reduce to ½ cup )
¼ cup cocoa powder
100g butter, melted
1 egg
1 cup plain yoghurt
½ cup milk
1 tsp vanilla essence
½ cup chocolate chips

1) Preheat oven at 180°C.

4) Fold in all the mixture until dampened, but not smooth.
5) Spoon mixture evenly into lined or greased muffin tray.

hello! just to check with you for the recipe can i omit the yohurt? or will the yohurt make the cupcake sour? n is this cupcake very chocolatey?
hope to get your reply thanks!

It seems that because most chocolate chips are designed to retain their shape when baking, they contain less cocoa butter than baking chocolate. This can make them more difficult to work with in melted form.
