Chocolate Fudge Sundae Cupcakes

Chocolate Fudge Sundae Cupcakes- Makes 24 cupcakes.


OK when I found this cup cake recipe at Cupcakery I knew I just had to make them, I think they are the tastiest  cup cakes I have ever made. 




Ingredients 
  • 475g caster sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 375g self raising flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 100g coco powder
  • 100ml coffee (I used decaf for the kids here!)
  • 100g melted chocolate (at least 50% coco)
  • 250ml buttermilk
  • 250ml vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla paste


  1. Preheat your oven to 180c and line 2 pans with 24 cupcakes cases.
  2. Beat the eggs with the sugar until fully incorporated and looking light and fluffy.
  3. Add the vanilla.
  4. Sift you flour, coco powder and baking powder together and leave to one side.
  5. Melt the chocolate and mix in with the coffee. Stir until smooth. Add in the salt.
  6. Add one third of your dry ingredients to the eggs and sugar and combine slowly.
  7. Add the cup of milk.
  8. Add one third of you dry again, mixing slowly.
  9. Add the oil.
  10. Add the coffee and chocolate and mix again.
  11. Fold in the remaining one third of the dry ingredients by hand using a rubber spatula. This way you ensure it stays light and fluffy and you don't over mix the batter.
  12. Scoop into the 24 cupcake cases, filling to about two thirds full and bake for 20-25 minutes until a skewer inserted inside comes out clean. 
I used just plain vanilla butter cream the easiest and quickest to pipe for me.








Chocolate Fudge Sauce
  • 200ml double cream
  • 100g dark chocolate (at least 60%)
  1. Heat the cream, like you would a ganache but do not let it come to the boil. Just a slight simmer. 
  2. Pour the cream over the chocolate and cover the bowl to retain the heat. 
  3. Allow it to melt the chocolate for about 5 minutes and then stir it all together. 
  4. Pop it in the fridge to cool down. 
  5. When it's ready it'll be thick but movable. Drizzle it all over the cupcakes in any haphazard fashion you want.
