Thermomix Cheap & Easy Chocolate Cupcakes Recipe

Fat Mum Slim /

Mudcakes used to be my jam. As a teenager I did all the baking for my family, and I’d beg mum for a mudcake packet mix, and would make those babies… and happily eat them too. They involved a lot of work, you had to melt the chocolate add the mix and get to work. BUT THEY WERE WORTH IT. There’s something about mudcake that I love, the squishiness and the denseness. Are you with me?

So these cakes have all the joy of a mudcake, without the hard work. They don’t even involve melting chocolate. BUT they taste like you did. They’re a great school holiday recipe to whip up, and freeze for later.

Thermomix Cheap & Easy Chocolate Cupcakes Recipe

Ingredients

200g sugar

200g water

130g unsalted butter

2 tablespoons cocoa

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon bi-carb soda

200g self-raising flour

2 eggs

Method

  • Preheat your oven to 170ºC.
  • Place the sugar, water, cocoa, butter, vanilla and bi-carb soda in the Thermomix bowl. Cook for 10 minutes at 100ºC on Speed 2.
  • Once finished, remove the lid and allow the mix to cool for 10 minutes.
  • Add the flour and eggs and mix for 10 seconds on Speed 4.
  • Pour the batter into 24 silicon cupcake cakes {fill to about two-thirds full}. Place into the oven and cook for 15 minutes, or until cooked {they’ll spring back slightly when you touch them in the centre}.
  • You can ice them, or dust with icing sugar. We eat them plain, because they’re just like little mudcakes and really delicious as they are. They also freeze really well.
