These are yummy chocolate cupcakes with jam filling..Adding jam in cupcakes recipe is an innovative idea which I got and worked out well too.You can add any of your favorite jam but here I used grape jam which is lied down in fridge for so many days...The recipe calls for 3 eggs actually,but I used 2 big eggs and totally cupcakes came out perfectly..So,adding eggs 2 or 3 is your choice..Always use good branded cocoa powder for best flavor and in this recipe you can also add chopped chocolate for rich chocolate taste which is an optional..I baked these in the evening time and clicked on the same day.That`s why there was no good light in pictures but i hope you can see the clear texture in below picture...Another variation in this recipe is I used silicon rubber muffin sheet to bake the cupcakes which is heart shapes..Are n` t they looking cute?? Try the recipe in this weekend and surprise your kids..
