Deathly Chocolate Cupcake with Marshmallow Icing

Hi lovelies, I been sparing out my time to bake. I make an oath to myself at least once a week. 
Still trying to achieve it. 
Last week baking was 

Deathly Chocolate Cupcake with Marshmallow Icing
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 1/4 cup fine granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 1/4 cup cake flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup chocolate chips 
Oven : 170*C

  1. Cream the butter and sugar till fluffy and pale

    2. Gradually add in the vanilla essence and egg yolks one at a time while whisking till mix.    

    3. Sift the flour and cocoa powder. Then alternately add in the dry ingredients and the milk while
        whisking the batter.

    4. Lastly add in the chocolate chips and mix well with a spatula.

    5. Pour the batter into the cupcake molds till 3/4 of mold.
    6. Bake the cupcakes at 170*C for 20 mins till the cake tester come out clean.

Now it's for the icing! Personally I love marshmallow icing cause it's not too sweet or buttery and light. I could eat the icing itself, tasted just like marshmallow candies.
  • 1/2 cup fine granulated sugar
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp vanilla essence

  1. Boiled the sugar and water till it reached 120*C. 
  2. Whisk the egg whites till foamy and gradually add in the boiled syrup. 
  3. Whisk till the meringue turn out stiff peak or till it's cool down.

    4. Pipe the icing on the cupcake. For a nicely looking topping, use a nozzle.

    5. Brown the icing in the oven for 2/3 mins.

TIPS : When whisking the eggs into the batter, make sure do not over whisk it.

That's all for this week!!
