Moist Chocolate Cupcakes - A MUST TRY !!

A Must Try2

It has been a while since I last bake anything. My beloved father passed-away suddenly and left me with some stuff follow up and my mom are now staying with me. All this while, when I spent my time baking, my father are the one who help me to fetch my kids to & from school and I can just concentrate on my baking work. Now, I really have to planned for the time and make sure the whole process of baking can be done on time or it will ruined everything I do.. hehe ~

I really miss the time when I can just bake anything I want without worrying that I have to fetch my kids ... I miss my dad a lot, he was such a good daddy & helps me whenever I need a helping hand. Since the school holiday have started, I can now steal some of my time to starts baking again... I think I will soon get addicted to baking again hahaha.. Once started, don't feel like stop it!! Today, I bake some moist chocolate cupcakes. My kids they love chocolate cupcakes so much. I already have few recipes on Moist Chocolate Cakes and this time I'm going to try the recipe I got from Ann Journal - what attracts me is the word "A MUST TRY!! " so, why not try it out?? lol ...

A Must Try3

Did all of you notice that my cupcakes look so odd? The batter spilled all over the paper liners?? Actually this recipes will make 18 cupcakes, I only filled it into 12 paper liners and I filled it too full for the reason I don't want to waste the remaining cake batter. Lesson learned - do not fill your cup too full or it's end up the odd looking cupcakes like mine ... hehe!! But, it still taste extremely yummy, cake are soft and moist with chocolatey aroma. Not too bad ya?? haha
