Chocolate Cupcakes


These sweet treats are festive enough for a birthday party or other celebration, yet they are supremely easy to make. The "frosting" is actually an easy dulce de leche made by cooking a can of sweetened condensed milk until darkened and caramelized and then piping it onto the cooled cupcakes with a pastry bag (or a plastic bag with a corner snipped off) in random patterns (or use your own creativity). Chocolate sprinkles are a fast and fun garnish.


1 cup wheat flour
1 cup cocoa powder
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 cup milk
1 eggs
1/4 cup oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 can sweetened condensed milk (cooked)
chocolate sprinkles (to taste)


1Preheat oven to 180°C (approximately 350°F).
2In a bowl, mix flour, cocoa, sugar and baking powder.
