English Recipe:

SWEETIE PIE CUPCAKES

Baking time : 20 minutes
Oven : 180 C

180 g butter
239 g brown sugar

2 large eggs
160 g flour , sifted
7 ml baking powder
40 g cocoa
120 ml milk
300 g dark chocolate

MERINGUE
2 large egg white
180 g castor sugar
40 ml honey
45 ml water
pinch of creme of tartar

Preheat the oven . Beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy . Add the eggs one by one , beating well after each addition . Sift the flour , baking powder and cocoa together . Then fold it into the butter mixture followed by the milk . Spoon the mixture into cupcakes cups that have been prepared with a non stick spray and bake for about 15-20 minutes or until cooked through. Set aside to cool .
Make the topping
Beat all the ingredients together in a mixing bowl over a pot with a little boiling water in it – it’s important that the mixing bowl does not touch the water . NOTE The steam will heat the bowl , so keep a cloth at hand to prevent yourself burning . Now place the pot on the stove over low heat , beating the mixture continuously with an electric beater ( maak maar seker die draad is lank genoeg van die beater ) until soft peaks form ( it will take about 10 minutes ) , then remove the mixture from the heat .
Spoon the mixture into a piping bag with a 1 cm round nozzle . Pipe a small spiral on each cupcake and refrigerate for about 30 minutes .
Melt the chocolate . Place the cupcakes on a wire rack and carefully cover the meringues with chocoles ; leave to harden
