Simple White Chocolate Cupcakes

My white chocolate adventures continue with these simple cupcakes.  Easy to make, easy to eat and absolutely delicious!  The white chocolate adds an extra smoothness and sweetness to these cupcakes without being overpowering.  My favourite way to eat these is while they're still warm from the oven.

Recipe adapted from: Simple Essentials Chocolate by Donna Hay
100g white chocolate
100g butter
165g caster sugar
2 eggs
125mL milk
200g flour
1 tsp baking powder

1. Preheat your oven to 160C (320F).

2. Melt the chocolate and set it aside.

3. Beat the butter and sugar until light and creamy.

4. Add the eggs one at a time, beating between each addition.

5. Mix the melted chocolate in to the batter.

6. Add half the flour and combine, then mix the milk in, and finally combine the rest of the flour and baking powder.

7. Spoon the batter into a 12-cup cupcake tin lined with patty pans.

8. Bake the cupcakes for 25 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

9. Let the cupcakes cool on wire racks before finishing them with your desired topping (white chocolate ganache, Nutella, icing sugar, cream or raspberry jam come to mind), or simply eat them while they're plain and warm.
