Brownie Cupcake/ Chocolate Fudgy Cupcake

As we embark into our 4th week of baking marathon, it is time to play with the batter and make some unusual cakes. The most popular cakes with kids is usually chocolate based. In my house although this rule does not apply as my kid is not a great fan of chocolate based cakes.

But that wont deprive you from enjoying chocolate based cakes. On my blog you will find plenty of non chocolate based cakes . The ratio as explained to me in the simplest form by my friend replace the flour by the additional ingredient- which could be fruit or vegetable or chocolate

Well as you would start baking more you will understand that you have to stick to certain proportions differently but until then you can follow the above guideline

The brownie cupcakes are primarily chocolate cupcakes with lesser flour and more chocolate, It has the crust of brownie and a hint of fudginess. Yet it is a cupcake because the crumb is remarkably spongy. Anyway this one tastes very nice.

I made it for a reunion with my friends who are now dispersed all around the world. The idea to make brownie cup cakes instead of brownies was primarily to hold them in cups and second, I really wanted to make some thing different. Unlike the cupcakes or cakes the batter did not double in size but because of the baking time, the bottom crust was more like a biscuit and centre core slightly chewy yet crumbly and the top crust 

1 cup APF/ Maida
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate bar roughly chopped
1/4 cup cocoa powder
2 1/4 cups castor sugar
4 eggs/ 1 cup curd
2 sticks / 2 cup / 230 gms butter
1 tspn vanilla extract
2 tspn baking powder
1/4 tspn baking soda
1) Melt the semi sweet chocolate using a double boiler or in microwave. 
2) Let it cool down a bit, then add the sugar and butter to this. Beat it until it is creamy.
3) Add the eggs and beat them in well. 
4) In another bowl, mix the maida, cocoa powder, baking powder and soda and sift it together
5) Add the vanilla extract and the flour mixture to the chocolate mixture and mix well
6) Put this into a lined muffin tray and bake at 180c for 12-15 min.
7) Check with tooth pick in the centre.  If it cooked, remove and let it stand for few min. This will aide in forming the crust
8) Remove from the muffin tray and let serve
