Recipe:Not-too-sweet Chocolate Orange Cupcakes(EN/RO)

Hello again, lovelies!
First and foremost...Yay! I made it to 100 followers! Thank you so much for taking time out of your day to read and subscribe to my blog :) It means a lot to me.

Today, I have a recipe to share with you. To me, chocolate+ orange= love :) so,what better way to combine them than in a cupcake?Right, there is no better way.
Keep in mind that you can add more sugar if you wish but I prefer it like this. Less sugar= smaller chance of getting diabetes & less calories,right?
RO: Astazi, vreau sa impart o reteta cu voi.Pentru mine,ciocolata si portocalele sunt combinatia perfecta.Deci, de ce sa nu le combinam intr-o briosa? :)
Daca va plac mai dulci,puteti adauga mai mult zahar,dar eu le prefer asa.Mai putin zahar= mai putine sanse sa facem diabet= mai putine calorii :)

You will need:
O sa aveti nevoie de :

  • 75 grams butter(softened) ( 75 grame unt la temperatura camerei)
  • 80 grams granulated sugar (80 grame zahar granulat)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder ( 1 lingurita praf de copt)
  • 200 grams all purpose flour (200 grame faina)
  • a pinch of salt ( un varf de cutit de sare)
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa (2 linguri cacao)
  • 100 ml orange juice  (100 ml suc de portocale)
  • 1 egg (1 ou)
  • the zest of an orange  ( coaja de la o portocala)

Step 1: Preheat your oven.(I don't pay attention at how many degrees because I have an old type of oven.Just make sure it's hot :) )
RO:Preincalziti cuptorul.Nu tin cont de grade fiindca am un cuptor vechi care imi afiseaza nimic.

Step 2: Mix the butter with the sugar with a hand mixer.(or a spoon or whatever you have).Add the egg and mix again.Just make sure it's all mixed together really well.
RO: Amestecati untul cu zaharul utilizand un mixer(sau o lingura sau ce aveti).Adaugati oul si mixati din nou pana se uniformizeaza compozitia.

Step 3:In another bowl, mix  the flour,cocoa,salt and baking powder.Put the dry ingredients over the butter-egg-sugar mixture and stir.
RO: In alt vas, amestecati faina,cacaoa,sarea si praful de copt.Puneti ingredientele uscate peste cele ne-uscate si amestecati bine.

Step 4: Peel an orange and get the juice of it. Add the zest and juice to the mixture.
RO: Radeti coaja de la o portocala si faceti suc din ea.Adaugati aceste 2 ingrediente in amestec.

Step 5: Line your cupcake tray .Put in the oven for about 10 to 15 minutes. Do the toothpick test if you wish.
RO: Pregatiti tava cu hartie pt.briose.Dati la cuptor pentru aproximativ 10-15 minute .Faceti testul cu scobitoarea ca sa va asigurati ca s-au facut.

Step 6: Enjoy your cupcakes that should look like this:
RO: Bucurati-va de briosele voastre care are trebui sa arate cam asa:

Happy cupcake eating and last day of April! :)
