Meta-description: Chocolate cupcakes are a dessert loved by many people. However, using only one method of preparation can become uninteresting. So, find out different ways to keep your cakes delicious and fun in this article.
Cupcakes are cakes in dainty sizes and are the sweet tooth’s favourite. They are small, cute to look at, and can be decorated or prepared according to your taste.
Using only one recipe for your chocolate cupcakes can get boring or monotonous. So, you can make things exciting by preparing your cakes with a variety of sumptuous fillings. Examples of fillings for your cupcakes are ganache, buttercream, marshmallows, and even fruits.
With this in mind, here are five great ways to prepare deliciously-filled chocolate cupcakes.
1. Cream filling
Stuffing your chocolate cupcakes with cream is a yummy alternative to plain cakes. This cream filling is easy and quick to make.
You can do this by mixing whipped cream, granulated sugar, and a few drops of vanilla extract.
Then, put the cream into a pastry bag with a long, thin nozzle and insert this almost to the bottom of the cake. After the nozzle goes in, push the cream into the cakes while removing the nozzle slowly. In the end, you will have a nicely filled dessert.
You should put in the cream only after the cakes have been baked and cooled.
Don’t forget to refrigerate your desserts if they do not get finished on the same day.
Chocolate in a chocolate cake is one of the yummiest things ever. After mixing up your batter, and placing them in the cake tins, you can throw some chips or chunks of chocolate into the mix.
After baking, the insides of your cakes would be filled with gooey, chocolatey goodness. White chocolate or a mixture of both types would also do great in this recipe.
Sprinkle-filled cupcakes are probably the most popular variety. They are colourful, attractive, and very scrumptious. To prepare this, make a hole in the centre of the cake after baking and allow to cool. Then, load the hole with sprinkles until full.
This recipe is highly loved by kids and is also a sensational dessert at parties.
Jams are an awesome spread and also make yummy fillings for cupcakes. A perk in using them is that they come in various flavours such as strawberry, apples, berries, mangoes, etc. The many flavours allow you to prepare a batch of cakes with several exotic flavours.
Preparing this cake uses the same method as the cream-filled ones. Also, you can slice a little piece off the top of the cakes with a knife and then fill up with the jam.
Fruit cupcakes can also be prepared using the same method and a motley of fruits go well with cupcakes. Examples are strawberries, currants, and blueberries.
Marshmallows baked in cupcakes give a different and unique taste to the treat. Similar to the chocolate fillings, you can add marshmallow to your batter and bake.
When done, the cakes would be filled with sticky and tasty marshmallow goo reminiscent of campfires and the great outdoors.
These treats go well with hot chocolate, milkshakes, or wines for the adults.
