Truffle Cupcakes

These were made for my lovelies at my Friday Prayer Group to celebrate the day of love. Not only did we have the serious sharing of the Word and fantastic Worship. We ended it all with a Sweetheart Bible Quiz and a game called Sword in Hand. My group is is enthusiastic and a bunch that is earnest and ever friendly. So after all the bible discussion we tucked into these little sweet things for a sweet ending to our meeting!!!!

For the Cake:
Plain Flour - 85 gms
Caster Sugar - 100 gms
Unsalted Butter - 50 gms
Cocoa Powder - 25 gms
Egg - 1
Baking Soda - 1/2 tsp
Baking Powder - 1/4 tsp

For the Ganache:
Dark Chocolate - 100 gms
Cream - 100 ml

Into a small bowl pour 100ml of boiling water to the cocoa powder and whisk into a smooth paste and cool to room temperature. Cream the butter and sugar together until using an electric whisk or food processor. Add in the egg and then the flour, baking powder and soda together and then add in the cooled cocoa mixture. Put spoonfuls into 14 paper cases and bake for about 18-20 mins in a preheated oven of 180 C. Remove once baked and allow to cool.
In the meantime prepare the ganache by bringing the cream into a boil in a saucepan and pour over the chopped up chocolate and stir to dissolve. You should end up with a thick glossy creamy mixture. Drop a teaspoonful of the mixture onto each cupcake and sprinkle on chocolate sprinkles or shavings, dust icing sugar (optional) and serve.
