To prepare the Black Forest chocolate cupcakes start heating the oven to 180°C. Grease a 12 hole bun tin.

Beat the butter with an electric whisk until smooth. Gradually beat in the sugar and vanilla until very creamy.

Gradually beat in the eggs until blended.

Sift in the flour, cocoa and baking powder alternately with the milk and fold in gently until combined. Stir in the grated chocolate.
