I made these cupcakes for RSPCA cupcake day. They are black and white just like Barney.

Makes 12

125g butter
3/4 cup caster sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs
1 1/4 cups plain flour, sifted
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup milk
150g 75g dark chocolate, chopped
1/2 1/4 cup pouring cream
1 cup desiccated coconut

1 Preheat oven to 160C.

2 Place the butter, sugar and vanilla in an electric mixer and beat until pale and creamy.

3 Gradually Add the eggs, beating well after each addition, until combined. Add the flour, baking powder and milk and beat until just combined.

4 Spoon the mixture into 12 x 1/2 cup-capacity muffin tins lined with paper patty cases and bake for 20-25 minutes or until cooked when tested with a skewer.

5 Place the chocolate and cream in a small saucepan over low heat and stir until melted and glossy.

6 Refrigerate until cool. Spread the cooled cupcakes with the chocolate and sprinkle with the coconut to serve.

PS we raised $570!
