Every day I get to see so many kinds of desserts all through G+.... I gorge on them virtually.... No, I do not make them because I cannot. But I love to see with what expertise they do it from cheese cakes to baklava.... then I visit a cake shop or a restaurant to taste though rarely as I am not allowed to. So they are really a visual treat for me everyday.

I have limitations when it comes to baking. At the same time I wished to post something relevant to Easter. Though we do not celebrate it, I faintly remember during my childhood I grew up in a small township which had a big church. I did my kindergarten in the church school. My aunt had a couple of Christian friends and I was a part of Easter celebration. With a couple of dear ones residing in the Western world, and also for the fellow googlers I prepared these CHOCO CUPS.... which perhaps their kiddos can also make. I am happy being part of this cake making session.

All Purpose Flour : 11/3 cup
Baking Soda : 1/4 tsp
Baking Powder : 2tsp
Cocoa Powder : 3/4 cup
Sugar : 1 cup
Butter : 1/4 cup[softened]
Eggs : 2
Milk : 1 cup
Vanilla Essence : 1tsp

Preheat oven to 180 degree C.

Mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and cocoa powder.

In another bowl cream together sugar and butter.

Add beaten eggs one after another and mix well.

Add the milk to the batter and mix.

Pour the flour mix little at a time and keep mixing.

Once done, add one spoon vanilla essence.

Pour onto paper cups till half and place them in cup cake tins.

Bake for 15-17 minutes at 180 degree centigrade.

Once cool decorate with your choice of frosting!!
