double chocolate easter cupcakes

I don't own a stand mixer because my kitchen is too small to house one. I'd have to store it in my sunroom which is already filled with enough junk as it is, thank-you very much. That doesn't mean I can't dream though. Whilst looking through the website of a well known and very expensive brand of mixer, I came across this recipe. How could I not bake these cupcakes for Easter?

I bought the cupcake holders in London a few years ago but I've only used them once before. They're silicone and they work really well.

I always seem to have leftover chocolate ganache lurking in my freezer so I defrosted what I had - a mix of both milk chocolate and dark chocolate ganache. The easter eggs, I had to buy.

I've always had a soft spot for mini Easter eggs.

Here they are, all packed up and ready to go.

The recipe made 11 small cupcakes and I did try one of the cupcakes. I have to say, the cupcakes are good, they're very, very good.

I'm really looking forward to my Easter break. As Passover starts this coming Friday I'm planning to bake up a storm and will try to post a passover sweet treat every day next week. Passover baking throws up many challenges which I'm aiming to overcome. Wish me luck.

Wishing every-one a safe and Happy Easter,

    I am intrigued about the addition of potato/rice flour. Thank you for sharing this recipe, perfect for Easter, they look so lovely all packaged up topped with little eggs. Looking forward to reading about your passover treats. Happy Easter to you. Cheers, Kathy.
