Mexican Hot Chocolate Cupcake
It is sound crazy when we think it will not actually contain any chocolate, but if you think about what exactly that makeup is “chocolate,” then, it makes a perfect sense. Chocolate makes up using cocoa butter, milk,
emulsifiers, vanilla, sugar, and cocoa solids. The cocoa solids give flavour to the chocolate. That is why the highest quality cocoa powder is good to use for the chocolate flavour.
Ingredients required for Mexican Hot Chocolate Cupcakes are following as;
- One and a half cups granulated sugar
- Half cup Cake flour
- One cup all-purpose flour
- One cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- One teaspoon baking soda
- One and a half teaspoons baking powder
- 4 large eggs
- Half teaspoon kosher salt
- One cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
- One cup Greek yogurt
- Two teaspoons vanilla extract
How to Prepare it?
First of all preheat the oven at 350 degrees F, take a large mixing bowl and place the all-purpose flour, sugar, cake flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and stir to combine. Then, mix in the butter on stumpy speed until the blend resembles moist crumbs.
Mix all the eggs with a splash of vanilla a few dollops of Greek yogurt. Scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl with a silicone spatula after each addition, and then add the yogurt and vanilla. After that, again scrap the sides and bottom of the bowl to be sure that all the ingredients are well-mixed.
To build the structure of a cake and to aerate the batter, just beat the butter at medium speed for one to one and half minutes. Afterwards, use an ice cream scoop to portion out the batter, just fill half full cupcakes and bake it for 15 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the middle of a cupcake and comes out clean. Before frosting, cool the cupcakes completely.
