How to make Chocolate cupcake with step by step images
- Preheat oven at 350F/180C. In a bowl add all purpose flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Mix well until combined.
- In another bowl add sugar and oil. Mix well and until combined. Now add 1 egg and vanilla syrup. Whisk well until combined.
- Now to the egg mixture add water. Mix really well until everything is well combined.
- Now to this wet mixture add the flour mixture and mix well to form cupcake batter.
- Place cupcake liners in a cupcake tray/ muffin tray. Now fill muffin batter in each cupcake liner. Fill only ¾ th portion of each cupcake liner. Now place it in the preheated oven and bake it for 25 minutes. Every oven is different so if it is not baked in 25 minutes bake for some more time.
- When the cupcake looks done and puffed up insert a toothpick in the center of the cake, if it comes out clean the cupcake is done, if it has some batter then bake for some more time. Now when the cupcake looks done place it on a cooling rack for it to cool down.
- In a microwave safe bowl add chocolate chip and butter. Microwave for 30 seconds.
- Now in a another bowl add hot water. Keep the microwaved bowl on the hot water bowl and stir continuously until chocolate melts. Now add ½ tsp milk and mix well. Now basic chocolate glaze is ready.
- Now gently add preferred amount of chocolate glaze over each cupcake using a spoon. I used 1 ½ tsp glaze for each cupcake. Now add sprinklers on the glaze and serve it!
