HOW TO MAKE CHOCOLATE STRAWBERRY CUPCAKES

To make chocolate cupcake

In a large bowl, add self-raising flour, cocoa powder, dark brown sugar and salt. Whisk to combine.

In a separate bowl, add milk, eggs, vegetable oil. Whisk to combine. Add hot coffee and stir to combine.

Add dry mixture into the wet mixture and stir to combine.

Spoon cake batter into the muffin tray with liner. Fill half a cup only not more or less.

Bake in the preheated oven at 180°C for 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted and come out clean. Transfer to a cooling rack to cool down completely.

To make chocolate whipped cream frosting

In a small bowl, add gelatin and water, stir well and heat in the microwave for 10 seconds. Remove and stir well, place the gelatin mixture back into the microwave and heat for another 10 seconds. Stir until mixture is dissolved. Repeat another 10 seconds if required. Set aside to cool while preparing the whipped cream.

In a large mixing bowl, add chilled heavy cream, icing sugar and cocoa powder, beat using a hand mixer on low speed until you achieve soft peak. Add warm gelatin into the cream mixture and beat on high speed for about 5 minutes until you get stiff peak.

Cover with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator for 30 minutes for the cream to set. Adding gelatin into whipped cream helps to stabilise the frosting. This step is optional. Transfer the whipped cream into a piping bag and pipe the cupcakes according to the pattern that you like. Top with fresh halved strawberries.

HOW TO STORE LEFTOVER CUPCAKES

Leftover whipped cream frosting cupcakes can be store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Unlike buttercream frosting, whipped cream frosting cake cannot be leave out at room temperature as we are using heavy cream instead of butter that required to be refrigerate all the times. Unfrosted cupcakes can be store at the freezer in a sealer bag for up to 3 months.
