So-Not Molten Lava Cupcakes

Yesterday, I picked up a “100 everyday baking recipes” that I received as a gift from my bestie. Its got wonderful recipes, and I have tried dozens of them . One of my favorite recipes made from that book is “Warm-Molten Centered Chocolate Cupcakes”. I have made this quite a few times, so its a tried and tested recipe. I decided I’d double the recipe. Who doesn’t want extra cupcakes eh? Mistake number one.
I quickly glanced through the recipe, mentally making a note if I had it in my pantry or not. Flour.Chocolate.Egg.Cocoa, check. Castor sugar? I’ll just grind some.
I got all of em together, and made the batter. A quick glance at the recipe. Self raising flour.
Duh! I added some baking powder and mixed again. Mistake number two. I was sure I had mixed so much, that I had done something to its gluten content.

Nevertheless, I popped em in the oven, they were done in less than half the time I normally baked them. And no molten chocolate inside. Just a solid piece of chocolate. Though the cupcakes weren’t inedible. They weren’t what I had intended to bake. Just plain chocolate Cupcake.

After tossing them in the trash, I decide I’d make gheeand use up all the clotted cream stored in my fridge since the past week.

So much for molten cupcakes.

Lessons learnt.
1. Read instructions twice, thrice. Make sure you read them correctly, even if you have made it many times .
2. Never add extra ingredients, if you have forgotten one. Especially something like self-raising flour.
3. Double a recipe. At your own peril

    I am the one who does the mistake number two all the time…i always think replacing an ingredient wont make a difference, but it does.

    Hey there! Quick question that’s totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when viewing from my iphone4. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to resolve this problem.

    If you have any suggestions, please share. Appreciate it!

    Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your article seem to be running off the screen in
    Opera. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.
    The layout look great though! Hope you get the issue solved soon.
    Cheers
