Every home recipe collection needs a good chocolate cupcake recipe and this is a great one that is easy to make and versatile for decorations.
The only comment I would like to make is that I backed the filling to about halfway in the patty pan because at 3/4 fill they overflowed a bit but overall the recipe was good and the cakes are nice and moist. Came up nice with coffee fondant icing on top. - 13 Jun 2009
Not sure how you can cream the butter 50gm with that quantity of sugar can someone tell me? Mine were a disaster first time ever I have baked like that :-( - 09 May 2014
I made these for my daughter's birthday to take to school. Rave reviews from the kids, teacher, principal and a few other mums. Plus gave several a try myself, some of the most moist and tastiest homemade cupcakes. Thank-you for sharing this recipe. And they were easy to make and I love that they don't have much butter. They do rise a lot, so you don't need much mixture in each one, so will do this a bit differently next time, as some rose a little too much, but definitely can't wait to make them again. - 20 Aug 2013
