Chocolate Cupcakes Filled With Chocolate Syrup

My mom loves chocolate, so this Mother’s Day, I surprised her with these fluffy cupcakes which are loaded with chocolate. So if your mom is also a chocolate lover, don’t wait, try this recipe now and make her feel special.

How to make chocolate cupcakes:

To make these chocolate cupcakes at home you will need all-purpose flour, unsweetened cocoa powder, baking powder, unsalted butter (which should always be at room temperature), castor or powdered sugar, two large eggs and vanilla essence.

I have filled these cupcakes with Hershey’s chocolate syrup, but you can also use a homemade chocolate syrup or sauce if you like. And I have decorated the cupcakes with chocolate buttercream frosting. It’s the same buttercream frosting recipe which I had used in my vanilla sponge cake recipe. You can easily frost around 12 cupcakes with that recipe, so scale it accordingly.

Now coming to the baking time for these cupcakes. Every oven is different, my oven took around 20-25 minutes to bake these cupcakes. But your oven may bake much faster. So always keep an eye on them and I would recommend you to start checking after 15 minutes. The top of the cupcake should look slightly crisp and when a wooden skewer is inserted in the middle, it should come out clean.

After the cupcakes are fully baked, take them out of the oven and place them over a wire rack. Allow them to completely cool down to room temperature. Then carefully remove the cupcake liners. Using a small knife, make a small circle in the middle of the cupcake and scoop it out. Make sure the hole isn’t too deep. Then fill it with chocolate syrup and pipe the chocolate buttercream frosting over the top. Super chocolatey cupcakes are ready to serve. Happy Mother’s Day!

Prep Time: 15 min | Bake Time: 25 min | Total Time: 40 min

Yield: 6 cupcakes

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • ½ cup castor sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ tsp vanilla essence
  • 7-8 tbsp chocolate syrup
  • 1 cup of chocolate buttercream frosting, filled in a piping bag with Wilton 32 nozzle

Baking Directions:

Preheat oven to 180-degree Celsius. Line the cupcake moulds with liners.

In a bowl, add unsalted butter. Beat it with an electric beater or whisk until it becomes light and fluffy.

Then add castor sugar and beat it for a couple of minutes. Let it fully incorporate into the butter.

Pour vanilla essence and then add one egg into the mixture. Continue to beat and once it is combined well, add another egg. Beat again. This will prevent the batter from curdling.

Sift together all-purpose flour, cocoa powder and baking powder in a bowl. Whisk well. Then pour half of the dry mixture into the egg mixture. Gently fold everything together.

Once it is fully combined, add the rest of the dry mixture. Continue to fold until well combined.

Pour the cupcake batter into the lined moulds and level by running a spoon over the top. Place it inside the preheated oven and bake for 25 minutes.

Take them out and insert a wooden skewer in the centre of the cupcakes, if it comes out clean, then place them on a wire rack to cool down. Otherwise, bake for a few more minutes.

After the cupcakes cool to room temperature, with the help of a knife scoop out a little portion of a cupcake. Fill it with a tablespoon of chocolate syrup and pipe the chocolate buttercream frosting over the cupcake. Repeat the same procedure for the rest of the cupcakes.
