Chocolate & Cinnamon Cupcakes

In Portugal, cupcakes are called "Queques".
In good Portuguese pastry shops you can find all sorts of cupcakes: Chocolate, Vanilla, Carrot, Nuts, Almonds, Beans, Lemon, Orange, Milk, Cheese, etc.
Here´s my easy Chocolate & Cinnamon cupcake recipe:


~ 4 Eggs
~ 1 Cup Sugar
~ 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
~ 2 Teaspoons Cinnamon powder
~ 1 Cup Milk
~ 150 gr Black Chocolate
~ 2 Cups self rising flour
~ 1 Tablespoon Butter

How To Do:

Cupcakes are very easy to do. Basically, you just need to mix well all ingredients and bake the cupcakes.
I mix ingredients in the following order:

1 - Mix whole eggs and sugar.

2. Add cinnamon and olive oil.

3. Add chocolate, previously mixed with milk.

4. Add flour and mix well.

5. Butter and flour individual cupcake pans. Fill pans 1/2 full with chocolate batter. Bake at 180ºC for 15/20 minutes.

Let cupcakes cool and they´re ready.
Bom Apetite!
