  1. Preheat oven to 180'C. Line a 12 cupcake pan with cupcake papers.
  2. Lightly beat the eggs, add in butter and sugar, then mix until light and fluffy
  3. Add milk, flour and cocoa powder, and stir to combine. Beat with and electric mixer for 2 minutes, until light and creamy, then fold through kirsch liqueur or brandy
  4. Spoon into capcakes paper and bake for 18-20 minutes until firm to touch ( I used a piping bag with a star-shaped nozzle)
