    Gorgeous and really easy. Doubled the recipe and made with Fairtrade cocoa, chocolate and mini eggs for my daughter's school's Fairtrade Easter tea. They seemed to go down really well.

    the print recipe buton isn't working and you can't select the whole page and print it, it only prints the method and not the ingredients.
    Please can someone fix this

    These were really easy to make and looked amazing. I made them for my son's Pre-School Easter Happening and they were very popular!

    These cakes are fandabbydosey!! They are the easiest, and by far the best cakes I have ever made. I have made these now on numerous occasions, and every time they go down a storm. However, I do adapt the recipe slightly. Instead of putting all the ingredients togther, I cream the butter and sugar first, then add the remaining ingredients. Next time I am going to make them in muffin cases, and pipe the icing on it big swirls.

    These are so easy to make and are lovely moist cakes. I make them in muffin cases and make 12 at a time. They arent in the tin long!!

    Used a milk choc/plain choc mix for the frosting. Found 16 buns covered with 3/4 the amount of frosting ingredients suggested. Very quick to make.

    Very yummy! lovely sponge and gorgeous topping. I used plain chocolate in the topping which made it even richer!

    A family favourite, I've been making these for years. I top them with Cadbury's Mini Eggs.
