Today I had the pleasure of meeting up and baking with one of my old work pals. I have just taste tasted a cake (or 3) and I can happily say they were beautiful, so I thought I would share this super simple recipe with everyone.
How to make the yummy cakes:
1. Preheat the oven to 180oC/350oF on Gas Mark 4. Line a baking tray with cupcake cases.
2. Sift the flour and cocoa powder into a baking bowl. Add the sugar, margarine, eggs and milk. Whisk/ stir until smooth (This is a serious workout). This is what this step looks like before and after:
3. When your mixture looks a bit like this, you can then divide your mixture into cupcake cases. A bit like this:
Now its time for the best bit… Decoration time:
To decorate my cupcakes, I spread a thin layer of nutella into the centre of the cake. I then overloaded it with chocolate by adding rolo, dairy milk and some marshmallows. I am so happy with how they turned out!
I have so much fun whenever I bake, and I think next time I may graduate to a trickier recipe (any suggestions are absolutely welcome!). I might even do a cheeky valentines day recipe for all the lovebirds out there. Be sure to keep your eye out on my blog for future recipes, until then thanks for reading!xxx
