Choc Chip Cupcakes w/ Ganache Icing

Saturday, December 19, 2009

Each week I bake a batch of cookies or cakes for all the guys in David's panel at work.

There is no popping down the shop to get lunch when you work down a coal mine!

And since they all work the night shift what could be better than a sugar hit at 3am!!

Makes 12-15 cupcakes depending on the size of your patty cases


4oz/ 120g Butter, softened

4oz/ 120g sugar

4oz/ 120g All purpose flour (Plain flour)

2 eggs, room temperature

1 teaspoon Baking powder

1/2 teaspoon Bicarbonate soda

2 teaspoons Vanilla essence

2 Tablespoons Milk

1/4 cup Chocolate bits


7oz/ 200g Chocolate bits

1/4 cup Thickened cream


Preheat the oven to 200*C/390*F

In a medium bowl cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy

Beat in eggs, vanilla essence and milk

Sift together flour, baking powder and bicarb. Add to wet ingredients

Mix well

Add in choc bits and stir to combine

Divide mix evenly between 12 individual patty cases

Bake for 10 minutes or until an inserted skewer comes out clean

Remove from the oven and allow to cool.


In a small saucepan heat the cream until just below boiling

Remove from heat and add in choc bits

Stir until all the chocolate has melted and mix has turned to a smooth glossy consistency

Top cupcakes with the ganache and allow to set
