My daughter was complaining that the cupcakes I made were very dry. So I decided to change the recipe and here is the final version.
Add vanilla essence and 4 eggs one at a time while beating until it mixes well on a low speed.
Add 3/4 cup plain flour and cocoa powder (unsweetened) each, 1 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1/4 cup milk and a pinch of salt. Mix well.
In a preheated oven (190 deg. Cel.) bake for 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out dry
In the meanwhile, let’s make the buttercream frosting.
Beat unsalted butter 200gms, until soft and silky. Add vanilla essence and mix. Now add 3 cups of icing sugar, 1 tbsp meringue powder and 1/4 cup milk. Add coloring. Mix well until the frosting is to your liking.
Spread or pipe the frosting on the cooled cupcakes.
