250 grams butter, softened
zest and juice of one orange
3/4 cup caster sugar
2 cups self raising sugar
1/4 cup powdered chocolate/cocoa (I used cadburys' bourneville)
1/4 cup milk
Preheat oven to 180 degrees c
Put butter and juice/zest in mixer, mix until creamy
Line muffin/cupcake pans with cupcake papers (I had 2 tins of 12 - made 24) and spoon a heaped tablespoon in each paper.
Cool and ice.
I iced with chocolate icing:
75grams dark cooking chocolate (I used greens)
50 grams butter
3/4 cup icing sugar
Method - melt chocolate in microwave - 1 minute on 50% power - stir, and then another minute at 50% power. Remove, add butter and stir until melts in, sift in icing sugar and stir. I spoon it onto the cupcakes so it oozes to the sides. mmm! You could garnish with candied orange peel - I have just piped with icing mixture made from sugar/water/food colour in a ziplock bag.
