Moist Chocolate Cupcakes

Yes, i baked lots of stuff today. Earlier, before these cupcakes, i made the custard cream for chocolate ice-cream which is now being chilled in the fridge . I am not going to blog about it today, only tomorrow after i churn custard to ice-cream. :)

So after making the custard, i baked chocolate cupcakes. Recipe from Nick Malgieri's The Modern Baker. Ok, i read the recipe wrongly at first, i should have put the baking soda in the boiling water but somehow i didn't and mixed it with the flour. In the end the chocolate cake turns out moist or overly moist at first which i rectified by putting in another 20mins in the oven. Oh yes, that was after it has been first cooled, i realised the cupcake is too moist/wet in the centre for my liking (the wooden skewer turned out clean you know!) i put it back in the oven and place a tin-foil over the top to prevent the top from burning, after 20mins later (again!), the chocolate cake is crunchy on top and still moist in the centre which is great! I didn't use the fudge icing but another chocolate buttercream icing in another book which is much simpler and quick to do plus totally chocolaty!

So in the end everything turned out well. My intention was for my domestic helper to take some cupcakes to celebrate her sister's birthday tomorrow on her off-day. So i am glad the cupcakes turned out well. :D
