Double Chocolate Cupcakes & Award

Hi my dear friends, I know this suppose to be a "kueh" post as I had promised...;p I do have a kueh recipe that I wanted to try so much but it seems the timing is just not right. Well, I've baked this last night, a recipe adapted from my favourite book.."The Great Big Cookie Book" by Hilaire Walden. These were actually planned last minute as I'm going to meet a dear friend who comes back from Japan for a short holiday. It was such a long time since we met, I don't even recall when was the "last time"!! So meeting her later is really special and I can't wait to meet her little princess!! Okay back to my post, cupcakes with chocolates and its double chocolates!! Hmm...for those who are chocolate lovers, this is the recipe you don't want to miss..;p Recipe (makes 16, 3.1/4oz cup) 400g plain flour 1 tbsp baking powder 2 tbsps cocoa powder 110g brown sugar 2 eggs 150ml sour cream 170ml fresh milk 60ml cornoil / sunflower oil 175g white chocolate (finely chopped) 175g dark chocolate (finely chopped)

~ Preheat oven at 190'C. Place 16 paper cups (3.1/4oz) on a tray.

~ Sift flour, baking powder and cocoa powder and set a side.

~ Lightly beat the egg with sugar till bubbly and add in sour cream and milk. Mix well.

~ Add in oil and mix well, then at low speed fold in the flour mixture.

~ Fold in the chocolates by using a spatula until well mix.

~ Spoon into prepared cups and bake at 190'C for 30 minutes.

Have a look the inside of the cupcake, soft and moist and rich with chocolates..yummy!
