So, I got out the beautiful Kitchen Aid and got myself stuck into some beautiful cooking, and may have enjoyed licking the bowl a little too much.
Ingredients (makes approx 50-60 mini cupcakes):
3 cups of Self-raising Flour
4 tablespoons of cocoa
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups cold water
1 cup caster sugar
Cream together the butter and sugar, then add the eggs
sift together the flour and the cocoa
Mix it all together, restrain yourself from licking the beaters while they are moving.
Bake for 30 minutes at 180 degrees celcius, add a buttercream and there you have some cute little cupcakes, perfect for your valentine.
You can also add some pretty sprinkles if you are so inclined, I always am!
Happy Valentine's day to all my lovely readers, I have saved you a cupcake!
