For the cupcakes:

  • ½ cup milk, room temperature
  • 1¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup sifted cocoa powder
  • 1½ scoops Biogen Iso Whey Premium Chocolate Flavour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ⅛ tsp sea salt
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup neutral oil
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened applesauce or yoghurt, room temperature
  • ⅓ tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup hot water mixed with 1 tsp dissolvable espresso powder

For the frosting:

  • 200g margarine or butter
  • 2-3 cups icing sugar
  • 1 scoop Biogen Iso Whey Premium
  • ⅓ cup cacao powder
  • Birthday sprinkles for decoration
  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C and line a cupcake tin with liners. Mix milk and a few drops of lemon juice to create ‘buttermilk’ and set aside to curdle.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, Biogen Iso Whey Premium Chocolate Flavour, baking soda, baking powder, and sea salt.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk the neutral oil, both sugars, yoghurt, vanilla, and buttermilk until well combined. Gradually mix in half of the dry ingredients and half of the coffee mixture, stir lightly, then add the remaining dry ingredients and coffee. Mix until just combined.
  4. Fill the cupcake liners about ¾ full with batter. Bake for 20-22 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  5. Let the cupcakes cool in the tin for 10 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  6. Beat the butter until creamy. Sift in the cocoa powder, Biogen Iso Whey Premium, and icing sugar, then beat until fluffy, adding 2-3 tbsp of milk if needed to achieve the right consistency.
  7. Fill a piping bag with the chocolate buttercream and pipe onto the cooled cupcakes. Decorate with birthday sprinkles.
