The Best Moist Chocolate Cupcake Recipe

I  have been put in charge of dessert for this years Christmas dinner and seeing as the traditional Christmas pudding is not really done here I have been wracking my brain for for ideas of what to make. I have been toying with the idea of doing two desserts one chocolatey and one fruit based and maybe try to have something Canadian and something English.  Now can you see why I still can’t decide what to do?  I’m not really making it easy for myself especially being new to all this baking and cooking from scratch business.

Seeing as cupcakes are almost a dietary staple here I have decided to go with Chocolate cupcakes to go with my chocolate and Canadian  requirement.  I have checked all my cook books and haven’t found any suitable recipes so I turned to the internet this morning in the hope of finding something.  Oh My Goodness, did I find the most perfect cupcake recipe!


I had to knock up a batch (just as a practice run of course) and I think with a cute festive cake case,  a Christmas decoration on top and maybe a little extra icing practice these are going to be just perfect.

The boys cake radar went off the second they set foot in the door after school and they have loved them, I’m pretty sure the rest of the batch isn’t going to hang around for long. They are beautifully moist without being heavy and totally delicious.

So thanks to Melissa over at The Alchemist for sharing this recipe I’m so impressed that a novice like me managed to pull this off!  I always wanted to be one of those mum’s who could knock up a batch of something delicious (like my best friend M) at the drop of a hat and now I am!

I would write out the recipe for you but I’m far too busy eating cupcakes  doing housework so check Melissa’s site for full details.

Now to decide on the fruit based English dessert Hmmmmm…..

      You’re welcome, Melissa. The family loved them and I’m sure they will be a hit on Christmas day too.

    Can’t wait to try these Lou, they look lovely. I have a good recipe for a sort of trifle, but you don’t need jelly (as in UK jelly) which I guess you can’t get there anyway, but it will mean using some precious custard, can you get frozen forest fruits there, also have you seen Rebecca’s apple cake recipe? well its Jacqui’s really. What about fruit cheesecake?
