A very happy Mother’s Day to my ma for being the kind of mother that she has been always :).

My mom loves chocolates. So here is what I bring today to celebrate Mother’s Day! I made them two days ago so it is from archives ;). But better late than never. These gorgeous chocolate cup cakes are making their appearance today on my blog !

I will be honest that I am not a fan of Martha Stewart! Yes…I see lot of discontented expressions around…..but the fact is that I don’t! But that’s her when she is doing a TV show. On the other hand her recipes and work is commendable. Do unsound contradictory? Well, it’s true…I am not much of a personal fan of Martha but her recipes are super good! In the frenzy of finding some easy and quick, last minute chocolate cup cake recipe, I stumbled upon her recipe. And I agreed to go
With her. 2 simple steps, few ingredients and still a super moist and super delicious cup cake which I have never been able to achieve so far! This is a keeper recipe.

I am going to post the recipe via copy-paste but have halved the ingredients, since her recipe calls for a big load of 36-42 cup cakes. I made only 16-18 cup cakes. Gorgeous! Hear me singing 🙂 . Find Martha’s original here
Here is mine, after halving the ingredients !
