Chocolate fudge cupcakes

75g Dr. Oetker extra dark Fine Cooks chocolate, roughly chopped

125g plain flour

½ tsp Dr. Oetker baking powder

½ tsp Dr. Oetker bicarbonate of soda

Pinch of salt

100g unsalted butter, softened

250g caster sugar

3 medium eggs

1 tsp Dr. Oetker natural vanilla extract

125g soured cream

100ml water

To decorate:

Dr. Oetker Easy Swirl cupcake chocolate icing

2 packs of Dr. Oetker fudge chunks

Preheat the oven to 180ºC/350°F/Gas Mark 4. Place the chocolate in a heatproof bowl and then place over a pan of simmering water. Ensure the water is not touching the base of the bowl.

Melt the chocolate, stirring frequently. Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly.

Combine the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt, and sieve together to make the flour mix.

Separately, beat together the sugar and butter in a large bowl.

Gradually add the eggs to the mixture, adding a spoonful of flour mixture with each egg to avoid curdling.

Mix in the melted chocolate, vanilla extract, soured cream and water until combined. Add the remaining flour and mix well.

Spoon into cupcake cases and bake in oven for 25 minutes.

Remove the cupcakes from oven and allow to cool in the baking tray, then remove from tray and cool completely on a wire rack.

Pipe on the Dr. Oetker Designer Chocolate Icing using the nozzles provided and then sprinkle with Dr. Oetker Fudge Chunks.
