There are three ingredients in my view that you can never get wrong with Nutmeg, Cinnamon and Chocolate.
So here’s a recipe I call the Holy trinity Cupcakes.
- 125g Self raising flour
- 125g caster
- 125g of soft butter
- 2 tsp of ground nutmeg
- 2 tsp of ground cinnamon
- 1 tbsp of honey
- 1 cup of milk
- 2 eggs
- chocolate truffles or baking chocolate
- Cupcake cases
- Cupcake baking tray
- Ice cream spoon
- Mixing bowl
Measure out the butter and sugar into a mixing bowl and mix until light, fluffy and pale.
Measure and then sieve all the flour into the bowl, mixing in a figure of eight – this will keep the air in the mixture.
Add the eggs one at a time carefully mixing the mixture, and then add the nutmeg, cinnamon and honey and mix.
Add the milk until the mixture is of a smooth consistence and easy to spoon out with the ice cream scoop.
Pre heat your oven to 190 degrees and place your cupcakes cases into the tray.
Using an ice spoon to make sure all the mixture in evenly spread dish out the mixture into he cases and place in the oven for 15 mins. Once cupcakes are fully baked take out the oven and let them cool. Tip – place a knife into each cupcake if if come out clean then its baked fully.
Bowl some hot water on the stove in a pan and place a plastic bowl with your chosen chocolate (I chose truffles just because) and melt the chocolate until it is at a texture that it can be drizzled.
Now using a spoon drizzle your chocolate on the cupcakes and then place in the fridge to chill the chocolate and there you go your holy trinity cupcakes!
