Light Dawns on Marblehead

April 16, 2012

The marble cupcake is probably one of the most basic cupcake recipes, but don’t be fooled – basic does not mean bland or boring by any means! It is a classic combination of rich chocolatey goodness and vanilla – top it off with a delicious cream cheese icing (or an icing of your choice) and you’re golden!

Marble Cupcakes 

*Recipe taken from ‘The Cupcake: Life’s Better With a Cupcake”*

You will need:

– Generous 1 1/3 cups self rising flour

– 3/4 cup butter, softened

– generous 3/4 cup superfine sugar

– 3 eggs lightly beaten

– 2 tbsp milk

– 2oz/55g semisweet chocolate, melted

– 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Baking Instructions

1. Preheat the oven to 350°f/180°c. Place 21 liners into shallow muffin pans.

2. Sift the flour into a large bowl. Add the butter, superfine sugar, eggs, milk and vanilla extract and beat together with an electric mixer until smooth.

3. Divide the batter between two bowls. Add the melted chocolate to one of the bowls and stir until well mixed. Place alternate teaspoonfuls of the two batters into the paper liners.

4. Bake in preheated oven for 20 mins, or until risen and firm to the touch. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool.

*Baking time will vary depending on your oven*

Happy baking and eating!

    I made a marble cake for my dad’s birthday. The cake was great, but frosting it was kind of a disaster! I should have made cupcakes! Great idea.
