I've been busy.. so I haven't had a chance to post anything new.
I made chocolate orange cupcakes for M about 2 weeks ago.
Because it was a last minute confirmation, I didn't realise that I was low on butter. Oh well.. :P
Watched Iron Man 2 that day too. I thought it was quite good (though I haven't watched the first movie). I don't usually watch movies because I find it hard to stare at a gigantic screen. But a movie is generally good if I can sit through it without falling asleep or if I'm not constantly moving around in my seat. I have a short attention span if something doesn't interest me enough. Haha.
Chocolate orange cupcakes
Makes about 12
55g butter, softened
135g self raising flour
150ml fresh orange juice
2 (60g) eggs
choc orange frosting
finely grated orange rind, dried out in the oven
Lindt Orange Intense chocolate
Preheat oven to 170C.
In a large bowl, sift flour and cocoa.
In a separate bowl, beat butter and sugar until light and creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating until combined.
Add orange juice and butter mixture to flour. Gently mix until combined.
Bake for about 12-15mins or until cooked.
Allow to cool completely before applying frosting and decoration.
I made a choc orange frosting, grated some chocolate and oven dried some orange rind (which had the most lovely smell to them!) and topped off with a piece of Lindt Orange Intense dark chocolate.
