150g dark chocolate
150g unsalted butter
150g caster sugar
50g self raising flour
100g macadamia, pecan nuts or walnuts - chopped
This makes 16 large cupcakes
Begin by preheating the oven to 180 degrees or gas 4. Line your muffin tin with cupcake cases.
Melt butter and chocolate together this can either be done in the microwave or in a glass bowl suspended over a pan of boiling water. Once the butter and chocolate is melted then use a mixer to beat in the eggs, sugar and flour. Your mixture should now look like this:
Carefully transfer them to a cooling rack and make sure they are completely cold before icing them. I used a chocolate buttercream icing and a 1M wilton icing tip to decorate my cupcakes but use whatever your favourite combination is.
