Recipe-Chocolate and cream cup

Happy Friday!! :-)
Lately I have been trying to cut back on sugar.
My goal is to only eat sugary/junk foods on the weekends. My favorite junk food is chocolate! I saw this recipe and thought it looked so yummy! I like that it is supposed to be easy!! With two little kiddos everything I make tends to be easy. :-)

A super easy and tasty little treat.
Serves 4
1/2 cup, 125g unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
3 eggs
1 cup plain flour
1/4 cup, 60g shredded coconut
4 tablespoons good quality cocoa powder
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup heavy cream
1 tablespoon sugar
chocolate sauce(you can use store bought)

Preheat oven to 350F.
Beat butter and sugar until pale.
Add eggs, one at a time. Mix well.
Add flour, coconut, cocoa and baking powder.
Mix well.
Pour the batter into a 12 cup buttered muffin tin.
Place in oven and bake for 12-15 minutes.
Cool on a wire rack
Cut the cupcakes into cubes and place them in 4 tea cups.
Whisk cream and sugar into loose whipped cream and pour it in the cups.
Use the chocolate sauce to make a pattern.
