Prep: 15 mins
Cook: 25 mins
Yields: 8 cupcakes/8 serves
½ cup (75g) self-raising flour or gluten free self-raising flour
1½ tbsp (15g) cocoa powder
75g butter, at room temperature
½ cup (85g) brown sugar, firmly packed
2 (59g each) eggs
4 scoops (160g) AdVital
2 tsp vanilla essence or extract
40g chocolate chips
60mL water, or for gluten free use 40mL water
Icing (30g per cupcake)
⅔ cup (80g) icing sugar
1 tbsp (10g) cocoa powder
100g butter, at room temperature
2 scoops (80g) AdVital
2 tbsp (40mL) milk
1Preheat oven to 180°C conventional/160°C fan forced. Place 8 paper patty cases in a (⅓-cup capacity) muffin tin or on a baking tray.
2Sift flour and cocoa. In a separate bowl whisk AdVital, water and oil until smooth.
3Beat butter and sugar until pale and fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time, adding a little flour mix after each one. Mix in the remainder of flour with AdVital mixture. Fold in vanilla and chocolate chips.
4Divide the mixture between the cupcake cases and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the centre comes out clean. Leave to cool before icing.
1Whisk AdVital and milk until thick and smooth. Beat in butter, sifted icing sugar and cocoa. Mix with a spoon, adding a little milk at a time until the icing is smooth but still firm enough to hold its shape.
2When the cupcakes have cooled down place the icing into a piping bag and decorate the cupcakes.
