Chocolate Cupcakes with Apricot Jam Glaze

October 25, 2018 at 14:27 (Bake, Uncategorized)

These are very simple and can be made at any time as no special baking goods are required.  The cocoa can be left out and replace with half a teaspoon of vanilla extract/essence for simple little vanilla cupcakes – any topping can be used for these cupcakes.

130g flour

100g sugar

100g butter/full fat marg

1 teaspoon baking powder

2 tablespoons cocoa

2 eggs

about half a cup of milk

2 tablespoons apricot jam

Cream the butter/full fat marg and sugar, add the eggs and milk.  Fold in flour, baking powder and cocoa until smooth – more milk may be added.  Spoon the batter into a muffin tin and bake at 180 C for 20 – 25 minutes.  Warm about two tablespoons of apricot jam and spoon a small amount onto the hot cupcakes as they come out the oven.  Use the back of the spoon to spread the warm jam evenly over the cupcakes – leave to cool.
