  • 4 large eggs
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

METHOD

  1. Melt the chocolate and leave aside to cool down.
  2. Beat eggs with salt.
  3. Cream butter and sugar together, then add eggs, vanilla extract and flour.
  4. At the end fold in cooled down chocolate and blend till smooth.
  5. Pour the mixture into cake cases and bake in preheated the oven to 190°C (374°F) for about 10-15 minutes. If you keep cakes too long in the oven they will dry and top will start cracking.
  6. Remove from the oven, leave aside till completely cold. You can even leave them (cooled down completely) in air tight container overnight.
  7. When you are ready to serve cupcakes, whip the cream, add melted and cooled down chocolate and whip some more till thick.
  8. Stir in chopped mint leaves and place frosting for about 10 minutes in the fridge till firm.
  9. Then put it in the piping bag and decorate cupcakes.
  10. Serve each cupcake topped with frosting, strawberry and few mint leaves, add one more strawberry on a side of each cupcake.

Makes 12 cupcakes.

NOTES

Ingredients for cake has been doubled and ingredients for frosting tripled ;)
Kate has used in her recipe blueberries and strawberries for garnish, I used only strawberries and some mint leaves.
When melting white chocolate for frosting, be very careful or use double boiler as it burns easily… that is why texture of my frosting is not smooth… but even through that it was the most delicious dessert I have ever prepared!
