Basic Chocolate Cupcake – A Crash Course Recipe

This is the template for a basic chocolate cupcake. I’m average at best when it comes to baking. So when I bake something I look for simple recipes that I can then challenge with my own ingredients. I say challenge because it doesn’t always work out.

For flavours other than chocolate simply swap the ingredient with something else i.e. Vanilla, Orange Poppy etc.
