Hot Chocolate Cupcakes


130g Plain flour

1 tsp baking powder

120 ml hot water

40g cocoa powder

115g butter

150g caster sugar

1 large egg

For topping:

Whipped cream

Mini marshmallows


Mix together hot water and sifted cocoa powder.

When powder has dissolved, with an electric whisk, beat in butter and sugar. Then add the egg.

Sift in remaining dry ingredients.

Mix together until well blended.

Spoon into cupcake cases and bake for 12-15 mins on 200oC.

When cupcakes come out the oven, leave for a minute, then place mini marshmallows on top.

When cupcakes have cooled completely have fun squirting whipped cream on top for a real indulgence!

Enjoy with a cup of tea… or even a hot chocolate!
