Method

  1. Heat oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5 and put 16 gold cases into a fairy-cake tin. Tip all the ingredients for the cake into a mixing bowl and beat for 2 mins with an electric hand-whisk until smooth. Divide between the cases so they are two-thirds filled, then bake for 12-15 mins until risen. Cool on a wire rack.
  2. For the frosting, microwave the chocolate on High for 1 min. Cream the butter and sugar together, then beat in the melted chocolate. Spread on the cakes and decorate with Maltesers and chocolate eggs.

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.

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