These delicious cupcakes were inspired by ones created by Nigella Lawson. They feature a butter-based chocolate cupcake that gets its intensity from unsweetened cocoa powder, and a cream cheese frosting that’s piped in a swirly fashion using a pastry bag fitted with a star tip. Ground cinnamon is dusted on top, a la cappuccino.

Ingredients

  • 125 grams butter (softened)
  • 125 grams sugar
  • 125 grams flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 5 tablespoons milk
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 200 grams light cream cheese
  • 125 grams powdered sugar
  • ground cinnamon

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  2. In a food processor, add the butter, sugar, flour, baking soda, baking powder, eggs, vanilla, and 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder and blend until smooth.
  3. Add 3 tablespoons of milk and mix until completely blended.
  4. Fill two greased cupcake pans 3/4 full with the batter.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes.
  6. Remove from the oven and allow to cool on a cooling rack.
  7. In a bowl, beat the cheese with the powdered sugar and remaining milk. Mix well.
  8. Using an icing bag with a star nozzle, decorate the tops of each cupcake.
  9. Finally, sprinkle with cinnamon or cocoa powder.
