Chocolate Cupcakes

Winters are just around the corner here in Pakistan and the best way to enjoy chilly evenings is to bake! Though we do not get very low temperatures here in Karachi, but still the Karachiites loves to enjoy whatever they get.

This evening I was craving something warm and chocolatey but also something light and quick so I decided to make cupcakes. These cupcakes will leave your kitchens warm and your house smelling beautiful.

You will need butter, flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, eggs, vanilla essence, instant coffee, sugar, butter and butter milk.

Sift together all dry ingredients.

Add eggs.

Add buttermilk, butter and coffee.

And beat on medium speed for 2 mins.

Pour batter in pre-lined muffin tray, about 2/3rd full and bake in preheated oven at 190C for about 25 minutes or until a tooth pick inserted comes out clean.

Frost with your favorite flavors!

Now I know my frosting isn't the best but it was my first experience with a piping bag. We can excuse a newbie for this right? ;)
