Chocolate Brownie Cupcakes

Chocolate Brownie Cupcakes

It is the most adorable and favourable cake for my kids, they always inquire about all the time! So, I give them a special treat today!

It can’t become wrong by adding chocolate to their cake. I’m not sure how many times I have made this for their tea since their childhood. I think it is the one that will pass it on to their kids in the future, oh yeah, my grandchildren!

What’s the conflict from this cake compare to the other brownies? This cake is light, moist, rich and full of flavor from the real dark chocolate, that’s cocoa contain 85%, it won’t bitter because I adapted the molasses natural unrefined sugar to balance the taste. Also, I’m not using the butter nor the oil in this recipe, I prefer the natural yogurt instead of the fat. Otherwise, you can use the vegetable oil for the yogurt if you like.

Orange zest is the additional, interesting ingredient that I like to add to the rich chocolate batter. Meanwhile, a pinch of pink Himalayan sea salt will bring out all the ingredients to your taste bud.

I hope this brownie won’t disappoint you all.
