Calleigh's cupcakes

Calleigh's Chocolate cupcakes


  • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup milk

Buttercream Frosting

125g (4oz) butter
1 cup icing sugar
2 tablespoons milk

1 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a muffin pan with paper or foil liners. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa and salt. Set aside. 
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition, then stir in the vanilla. Add the flour mixture alternately with the milk; beat well. Fill the muffin cups 3/4 full.  
Bake for 15 to 17 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean. Frost with your favorite frosting when cool. 
Makes 24 cupcakes
Since, I'm using turbo broiler: Preheat to 150 degrees C and bake for 15 minutes.
Buttercream Frosting
1. Have butter and milk at room temperature.

2. Place butter in small bowl of electric mixer and beat until butter is as white as possible.

3. Gradually add about half the sifted icing sugar, beating constantly.

4. Beat in the remaining icing sugar.

5. Mixture should be smooth and easy to spread with a spatula. Add extra milk or icing sugar until cupcake frosting is of a spreadable consistency.

Coloured: add a drop of food colouring to frosting until you reach the desired colour.

Hi Mishee,

Came across your site while looking for recipes I can do with a turbo broiler. Just want to ask how to adjust the cooking time and temperature for a recipe intended for conventional oven for cooking/baking using the turbo?
