Chocolate Orange Cupcakes | Recipe

7:00 PM


When it starts to get colder and cloudier outside I always like to bake, It just makes every home warmer in my opinion and the smell that surrounds the house while baking always reminds me of cozy autumn/winter days. And because of that I decided to make some cupcakes. I was feeling kind of adventures and I improvised with adding unsweetened cocoa to cake batter and replacing the milk in frosting with freshly squeezed orange juice. 
The cupcakes turned out great, my family loved them and they were quickly gone.
Hope you'll try out this recipe because it makes some delicious cupcakes.


Pre-Heat the oven to 170 degrees celsius and bake for 20 minutes!

The Cupcake Batter Recipe: 

125g caster sugar
100g self raising flour
25g unsweetened cocoa
2 large free range eggs
125g unsalted butter
¼ teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
1 ½ tablespoons of milk
¼ teaspoon of vanilla extract


Buttercream Icing: 

335g icing sugar
150g unsalted butter
1- 2 tablespoons of freshly squeezed orange juice ( you can add more if you want)
¼ teaspoon of vanilla extract
orange food colouring


xo, Marie
