Rocky Road Cupcakes


I'm not a fan of marshmallows.  I think they taste like sweetened suds. But, if it's in a cupcake, then it's a different story altogether.  However, not too much of it though as it's really sweet.  I like the texture it adds to cupcakes or brownies.  It adds gooeyness when you bite into it.  Always reduce the sugar in the recipe if you plan to use marshmallows.  My children love these and I'm sure my neighbour's kid will be delighted to get some too!

And as for my friend, 17.02, sorry, don't think these will last till Monday!

225g plain flour
2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp vanilla extract
240ml milk

2. Mix flour, baking powder, salt and cocoa powder together and mix well.
