chocolate Butterfly cakes

  Sometimes wonder why I end up making chocolate cake... .. was enjoying the morning coffee and my daughter her glass of milk ... but was missing  .....chocolate cupcake. So here ended up making chocolate butterfly cake... 


  • 8 tbsp butter softened
  • 100 grams castor sugar
  • 150 grams  self-raising flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 25 grams plain chocolate melted
  • icing sugar, for dusting
  • 6 tbsp butter softened
  • 175 grams icing sugar
  • 25 grams plain chocolate melted

  1. Put the baking cases in a muffin pan.
  2. Put the margarine, sugar flour, eggs and cocoa in a large bowl and , using an electric hand whisk, beat together until smooth. 
  3. Beat in the melted chocolate.
  4. Spoon the mixture into the paper cases, filling 3/4 full.
  5. Bake the cupcakes in a preheated oven, 180C/350F, for 15 minutes or until springy to the touch.
My daugtie started eating it when it was warm ..... we just enjoyed cupcakes ...didn't bother the complete the filling.
So here's the recipe for the filling....
  1. Put the butter in a bowl and beat until fluffy.
  2. Sift in the icing sugar and beat together until smooth. 
  3. Add the melted chocolate  and beat until  well mixed.
  4. When the cupcakes are cold, use a knife to cut a circle from top of each cupcake and then each circle in half.
  5. Spread or pipe a little of the buttercream into the center halves into it at an angle to resemble butterfly wings
  6. Dust  with a little sifted icing sugar before serving.

Hope u will be able to wait to complete the filling and not jump into it  like us...!!!
