For a quick fix, nothing beats a cupcake. And, if you are in a hurry, mini cupcakes bake up even faster!
The chocolate fudge cupcake recipe I used (slightly varied to suit my personal taste and style) is from this site: http://yourfoodtube.com/easy-italian-cupcakes-nutella-buttercream-tasty-dessert/
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
6 tablespoons dutch-processed cocoa
1/2 tablespoon instant coffee powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup melted butter
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon golden rum
1/2 cup hot water
Combine the dry ingredients together. Add melted butter, eggs and rum. Stir to mix. Add hot water; stir.
Spoon the batter into 24 mini cupcake tins (lined with paper liners). Bake in a preheated 350*F oven for about 14 to 16 minutes. Cool in pans for about 10 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
For the icing, I used an American-style Cocoa Buttercream.
Fast, easy, delicious! Even if I barely had time!
