- Cuisine: Modern Australian
- Makes 20
110g dark couverture chocolate, chopped
110g milk couverture chocolate, chopped
225ml coconut cream
25g inverted sugar (or glucose)
2 tbsp cream
50g unsalted butter
Chocolate mudcake mixture
100g plain flour
2g bicarb soda
120g brown sugar
4g sea salt
100g whole egg
160ml vegetable oil
20ml espresso coffee (you’ll need to make the 20ml espresso coffee, shot by shot. Or
just get it from your local café).
160g dark couverture chocolate
PreparationPreheat oven to 150°C.
For the ganache, put the dark and milk chocolate in a bowl. Put the coconut cream, inverted sugar and cream into a medium-sized saucepan. Bring to the boil over medium heat.
Pour the boiling mixture over the chocolate, and let it sit for about 20 seconds. Then whisk it all together until the chocolate is melted. Whisk in your butter until the ganache is smooth. Cover with cling film, and set aside to cool.
For the chocolate mudcake mixture, sift the plain flour, bicarb soda, brown sugar and salt into a large bowl. Combine the egg, water, vegetable oil and coffee in a jug.
Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and slowly add the egg mixture. Mix with a spatula until well-combined and smooth. Break up the dark chocolate into small pieces, and place in a glass bowl. Heat the bowl in the microwave for 1 minute. Stir and repeat 2 more times (heating the chocolate for a total of 3 minutes).
Whisk the melted chocolate into the mudcake mixture.
Line a muffin pan with paper cases. Prepare two piping bags. Half-fill one bag with the mudcake mixture. Whisk the ganache until smooth, then half-fill the remaining piping bag with ganache.
Pipe the mudcake mixture into each mould, filling to halfway up. Pipe a decent amount of the ganache into the middle of each cupcake. Finish with the mudcake mixture, taking care not to overfill the mould.
Bake, in preheated oven, for 20 minutes or until the cupcakes spring to the touch.
Set aside to cool. Ice with leftover ganache. Decorate as desired.

The hotness of the thousands of varieties of chillies is determined by the amount of capsaicin present in the fleshy material attached to the seeds. If you want to lessen the intensity of the chilli, remove the seeds and membranes, making sure not to touch them with your fingers. Generally speaking, the smaller the chilli, the hotter it is.
