Ingredients

For the cake (makes 6)
2 oz butter, softened
2 oz Alter Eco Mascobado Cane Sugar
1 egg
2 oz self-rising flour
2 tbsp cocoa powder
2 tbsp milk
1 bar Alter Eco Dark Mint Chocolate

 

For the ganache
1 bar Alter Eco Blackout 85% Chocolate
1/3 cup heavy cream
1 tsp peppermint extract

METHOD

Preheat the oven to 350F.
Cream the butter thoroughly with the sugar then beat in the egg.
Sift the flour and cocoa powder and fold in gently.
Chop the chocolate bar into roughly chip-sized chunks and carefully fold into the batter along with the milk.
Turn the mixture into cupcake cases and bake for 20 minutes.
Allow to cool completely before frosting.

For the ganache, melt the chocolate carefully over a water bath.
Remove from the heat and stir in the cream and peppermint essence.
Refrigerate for a few minutes until the ganache has cooled and set enough to use, before spreading it onto the cupcakes.
