Caramel Mudcake Cupcakes

My mudcake recipes are all originally from “The Women’s Weekly Chocolate Cakes” mini book. I have taken the recipes and modified them and made them my own. Here is one i came up with for cupcakes. Mudcakes are a lot heavier than these cupcakes, but I wanted this recipe to be light, to suit a cupcake.
If you were making it as a whole cake and you wanted a more firm cake you’d use butter instead of margarine. Also the original recipe is for a white mud cake, and it calls for 225gms of plain flour and 75gms of self raising flour. This gives you a much heavier cake, but i like mine lighter and that is why i’ve modified the ratio of self raising to plain flour.
If you wanted to make white cupcakes, you’d use 440gms of white sugar.
