Donna Hay's Chocolate Cupcakes

Only Aisyah and I love cupcakes in the house so I don't bake cupcakes that much. ANd if I do, it's always something chocolatey, our fav! I also don't decorate them with buttercream because I'm just lazy. But a cupcake is not a cupcake if it's not decorated, me thinks. But it’s just so much hassle with all that icing, decorating and so on.

I made my first batch of choc cupcake a couple of months back and I don't quite like them. But thanks to @sugarspunsista, I found out that Donna Hay's Double Chocolate Cupcake is awesome lah! And it's so good that it tastes nice even without any frosting. haha.
