Chocolate cupcakes - My own recipe

The other day, I experimented my way to baking some really lovely chocolate cupcakes.
Here is the result and the recipe
(Megan - as promised ;))

Chocolate Cupcakes (around 16)
3 eggs
2.5 dl white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
50 g unsalted butter
1 dl yoghurt (natural or vanilla)
3.5 dl white flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
4 tablespoons Cocoa powder (I used Caotina Noir)
A pinch of salt
100 g dark chocolate

Start by preheating the oven to 175 degrees.
Beat the eggs, sugar and vanilla extract until it's white and quite fluffy.
Melt the butter, add the yoghurt and mix it with the egg mixture.
Now mix flour, baking powder, cocoa and salt and fold gently into the batter.
Chop the dark chocolate roughly and melt it in a bowl over boiling water or alternatively in the microwave.
Place the paperliners in an owen-pan and fill them with 2 / 3 of batter.
Bake in center of oven for about 15 minutes.

Allow to cool down properly before adding the frosting ;)

Chocolate frosting
60 g unsalted butter, softened
5 dl powder sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
0.5 teaspoon vanilla powder
0.5 dl Cocoa powder (I used Caotina Noir)
100 g Philadelphia cheese
100 g Dark chocolate of good quality

Mix everything together in a bowl with an electric mixer but the melted chocolate.
Add the melted chocolate last.
Now just spread the frosting on the cupcakes and add some sprinkles, flowers or berries and TA-DAAAA!!!

If you do decide to try, please let me know what you thought?

Enjoy (I did......too many actually ;))!!
