Last week I went to The Warehouse to stock up on a few balls of wool and as I was heading to the checkout, I noticed some bags of mini Terrys chocolate orange pieces for only $3 and immediately picked one up as this is one of my favourite chocolates. I really wanted to use them in a blog post, but couldn’t quite decide what to make so I eventually settled on cupcakes as these are one of my absolute favourite things to bake. Let’s get started!
You Will Need:
- 3/4 cup & 2 tablespoons plain flour
- 1/4 cup & 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
- 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/4 cup canola oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
- 1/2 cup boiling water
- 100g butter, softened
- 1 1/2 cup icing sugar
- 1-2 tablespoons milk
- 2 drops red food colouring
- 3 drops yellow food colouring
- 1-2 teaspoons orange essence
What To Do:
- Preheat your oven to 180 degrees celcius and line a cupcake tin with paper cases.
- Sift your dry ingredients into a large bowl, then add both sugars and stir well.
- Add the egg, vanilla essence, milk and oil and beat with an electric mixer until combined.
- Pour in the boiling water and mix until just combined. Keep in mind that the mixture will be very runny.
- Transfer the mixture into a large jug and pour into the cupcake cases until they are 3/4 full.
- Place in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until cooked.
- Remove from the oven and place onto a wire rack to cool.
- To make the icing, place your butter into a large bowl and mix with an electric mixer on a high speed until smooth.
- Add the icing sugar and mix slowly until a smooth icing starts to form.
- Add the orange essence and milk and mix on a high speed until you are happy with the consistency.
- Add in the food colouring and mix well until a solid colour forms.
- Using a star nozzle, pipe the icing into a swirl on the centre of each cooled cupcake.
- Place one piece of Terrys chocolate orange into the centre of the icing.
I hope you enjoyed this recipe and I would love to see your recreations 🙂
