Chocolate Orange Cupcakes


For Cupcake:

300g self raising flour
250g unsalted butter
4 eggs
4 tablespoons of cocoa powder
250g caster sugar
Grated rind of half a large orange
4 tablespoons of orange juice

For Icing & Decoration:

220g unsalted butter
450g icing sugar
Grated rind of half a large orange
2 tablespoons of orange juice
Milk Terry's Chocolate Orange


Preheat the oven to 180C.

Put the chocolate into  a bowl to melt over a saucepan of boiling water.

Put the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, eggs and butter into a large mixing bowl and mix together until thoroughly combined. 

Next add the grated rind and squeeze out 4 tablespoons of the juice of the orange and mix together.
Spoon mixture into the cases and place in the oven for 15 minutes. Once ready, remove from the tray and leave to cool.

Put the butter into a mixing bowl . Beat until it has a smoother texture, adding a spoonful of icing sugar at a time. Once mixed completely, add in the orange rind and the orange juice. 

Using a piping bag and nozzle, swirl the icing on the top, and decorate with a segment of Terry's chocolate orange.

 These are really simple to make and taste lovely (if I do say so myself!) Hopefully will have another baking post up tomorrow.
