Easy chocolate cupcakes





250g unsalted butter, melted
1 cup (200g) lightly-packed brown sugar
1 egg
2 egg yolks
1 Tbsp honey
1 tsp natural vanilla extract
¾ cup milk
2/3 cup (100g) self-raising flour
2/3 cup (100g) plain flour
½ cup (60g) cocoa powder
chocolate frosting and sprinkles, to decorate


1. Combine the butter, sugar, egg, yolks, honey, vanilla extract and milk in a bowl, then whisk until smooth. Sift the flours and cocoa together, then fold in, beating until smooth.
2. Spoon into 2 lined Décor® Microsafe™ 6 Cupcake Trays, making 12 individual cakes, then stack the trays. Microwave on full power for 3 minutes, then swap the trays and microwave for 2 more minutes. Allow to cool, then decorate with chocolate frosting and sprinkles.

Tip: If using one tray, cook six cupcakes for 3 minutes and then cool. Then repeat with the remaining batter. Total cooking time for 12 cupcakes will be 6 minutes.
