Fudgy Brownie Cupcakes

0

These walnut brownie cupcakes are moist and amazingly tasty and above all, easy to make cakes. These are quick to bake, eggless b’cause made with malai (milk fat) as a base
Malai or milk fat is obtained after boiling and then refrigerating the milk for hours and there is a thick layer of milk fat on the top. Collect this and make the best use of it to bake delicious chocolate cupcakes
Sometimes I find it quite boring to use this malai for extracting butter and then ghee(clarified butter) but this time when I  made these utterly delicious chocolate muffins out of malai for the first time, I have become the fan of this recipe.
Bits of walnuts add the crunch to it. I don’t think there can be a particular time of the day to have this dessert. In fact, these might be enjoyed any time of the day
Just whip up the malai/fresh cream/milk fat with sugar,  add melted chocolate and little flour and see what comes up.. Vollah !! These melt-in -mouth fudgy beauties
