Chocolate Truffle Cupcakes

Guess what? I have finally found my favourite chocolate cupcakes recipe. It is so easy to make and you could certainly whip this up at the very last hour if you have unexpected guests coming, except for of course, you might need to let the cupcakes cool down for a little while before you put on the ganache.


I've over-whipped the ganache, so it looked quite grainy and not very appetizing. But hey! Who cares what it looks like as long as it's delicious! :D

Chocolate Truffle Cupcakes - Makes 20
from Bisousatoi

Ingredients

  • 5 eggs
  • 125g caster sugar
  • 75g flour
  • 40g cocoa powder
  • 50g dark chocolate
  • 65g butter
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
Ganache topping
  • 250g whipping cream/heavy cream
  • 250g dark chocolate
  • 30g unsalted butter

Method

1. Preheat the oven at 180C.
2. Melt dark chocolate with butter using a double boiler. 
3. Beat the eggs and sugar until light and fluffy. Then add in the sifted flour, cocoa powder and bicarb.
4. Next add in the melted chocolate. Stir well and scoop into cupcake liners. 
5. Bake for 13-15 minutes. Once baked, let it cool.
6. Prepare the ganache by heating the whipping cream using a double boiler. Then add in the chocolate and butter. Once melted, take off from heat.
7. Let the ganache chill in the refrigerator. After it has been chilled, whip the ganache until fluffy and it is ready to be piped. 


I halved the recipe and got 8 cupcakes out of it.
