Had a sudden crave to bake, searched for some chocolate cupcakes and chanced upon this. I then used this recipe, and I use hand to beat with whisk from start, instead of using my mixer.
The cupcakes is light, rich and moist. It's a keeper for me as it is not easy to find a recipe tt is rich and yet moist. Will use them for parties should I need to bake for my guests!
