We've nailed the classic chocolate cupcake: rich, moist flesh, smooth icing, and a nutrient profile that takes it from a naughty treat to a protein-packed snack you can enjoy whenever you like.
Preheat the oven to 180°C (conventional) or 160°C (fan-forced). Place eight paper patty cases in a 78mL-capacity muffin tin or on a baking tray.
Sift the flour and cocoa. In a separate bowl, whisk the AdVital Powder, water and oil until the mixture is smooth.
Beat the butter and sugar until the resulting mixture is pale and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, adding a little flour mix after each one. Mix in the remainder of the flour with the AdVital Powder mixture. Fold in the vanilla and chocolate chips.
Divide the mixture between the cupcake cases and bake for 20–25 minutes (or until a knife inserted into the centre comes out clean). Leave the cupcakes to cool before icing.
Whisk the AdVital Powder and milk together until the resulting mixture is thick and smooth.
Beat in the butter, sifted icing sugar, and cocoa. Mix them together with a spoon, and add a little milk until the icing is smooth but still firm enough to hold its shape.
When the cupcakes have cooled down, place the icing into a piping bag and decorate the cupcakes.
Hints and Tips:
- Add a half-cup of fresh or frozen berries to the mix before baking.
- Serve with whipped cream (see our Scones with Jam and Cream recipe).
