Lightly beat the eggs, then add it, along with the butter, milk and melted chocolate, to the dry mixture.
Mix until combined, then spoon into the cupcake foils.

Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the cake comes out clean.
Carefully remove the cupcakes from the tray and spread each with ganache.
