This week, it was Holi. I got an extended weekend and loads of time to rest. Hooray!

Made this wonderfully healthy choco cupcakes with wholewheat.

Here is the recipe:


Whole wheat/ Atta: 1 and a half cups
All purpose flour: 2 tablespoons
Cocoa powder: 3 tablespoons
White oil: 1/2 cup
Eggs: 2
Baking powder: 1 teaspoon (level)
Baking soda: 1/2 teaspoon
Milk: 1 cup
Sugar: 1 cup

For decoration:

Chopped raisins: a handful


1.Crack the eggs in a bowl. Discard the shells. Add sugar and mix well. You can use a hand/stand mixer to do this.
2. Add oil, milk and vanilla essence. Mix well.
3. In a separate bowl take the wholewheat, baking powder, baking soda, and cocoa powder.
Mix well.
4. Now add the dry mixture to the wet mixture in two batches.
5. Mix well till you get a batter of dropping consistency.
7. Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees C for 10 minutes. Pour the batter in cupcake moulds. Sprinkle chopped raisins on top and bake for 20-25 minutes.
8. After the cupcakes are well baked, take them out of the oven and keep aside to cool.
9. After 5 minutes, de-mold the cupcakes.
Enjoy the warm cupcakes with your hot cuppa.
