Recipe: Chocolate Pecan Brownie Cupcakes in a Cup

Hi, all. Some friends have seen the pictures already - but here is the recipe.

I made these pecan brownie cupcakes on the weekend. They were so easy and delicious. Add a touch of flare and bake them in their own cup or ramekin. Perfect for dinner parties or just for friends dropping by for coffee.

Serve these warm from the oven and they are even more delicious.

Chocolate Pecan Brownie Cupcakes in a Cup
Makes 6


1/2 cup butter, plus extra for greasing
115g/4oz dark chocolate, broken into pieces
2 eggs
1/2 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons golden or maple syrup
1 cup self-raising flour (or all-purpose flour with 1 teaspoon baking powder)
1/2 cup pecan nut, chopped

  1. Preheat oven to 180C/350F.
  2. Place chocolate & butter in heat-proof bowl. Set over saucepan of simmering water until melted. Stir occasionally. Cool for 5 minutes.
  3. In a bowl, whisk eggs, sugar and syrup until well blended. Whisk in melted chocolate mixture. Fold in flour gently - do not overmix. Mix in two-thirds pecans.
  4. Pour mixture into well-greased dishes until 3/4 full. Scatter the rest of the pecans over the top.
  5. Place dishes on baking tray and bake in oven for 25–30 minutes, or until cakes have risen and are crisp on top but still feel slightly spongey.
  6. Serve warm topped with a spoonful of heavy cream, ice cream or creme fraiche.
