Chocolate Truffle Cupcakes

Everytime kids attend a party, there is a definite excitement for the party favours! Honestly speaking I would also like to come back with party favours too. :)

When I host a party, I do try to give some gifts and this year’s birthday party was no different.

Chocolate Truffle Cupcakes

I made my super-hit chocolate cake recipe into cupcakes and frosted them with whipped ganache. Kids had a holiday that day so they directed the photoshoot for these cupcakes with polka dot toppers and their own smiles.

The recipe in itself is great but with just little addition of flags and ganache, it became beautiful and appealing to kids and adults alike.

Chocolate Truffle Cupcakes

Ingredients

1 cup of all purpose flour
½ cup of cocoa powder
1 cup of home-made curd
¾ cup of granulated sugar
½ teaspoon of baking soda
teaspoon of baking powder
½ cup of olive oil
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
400 grams of ganache

Preparation

1.Preheat oven to 200 C. Grease and line a muffin pan. Sift flour 2-3 times.
2.In a large bowl, beat the sugar and yogurt for 5 minutes on high speed. Add baking powder and baking soda, beat in on low, and allow to stand for 3 minutes. You will find that bubbles appear. Beat in the oil and vanilla extract to the curd mixture. Slowly add the flour in 4 lots, blending in well after each addition.
3.Using an ice-cream scoop pour batter in the prepared muffin pan. Bake at 200°C for 10 minutes, reduce temperature to 170°C and bake for 8-10 minutes or till a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean. Allow the cupcakes to cool completely.
4.Whip prepared ganache in large bowl. Transfer the whipped ganache into a piping bag with Wilton 1M tip. Frost the cupcakes with ganache as per your liking and serve.

Notes

The cupcakes can be made one-day ahead. Frost them before guests arrive if you wish.
