    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.

    Thought these were abnsolutely fantastic. Very easy. Swapped the malteasers and milk chocolate for mini eggs as so many others have done. And used chocolate philadelphia in my buttercream.

    I made these, as well as some simnel muffins, which were also delicious, for a Fairtrade coffee morning the school were holding. The cakes were delicious and much better than any shop bought ones, I used the tip another person made about crumbling a flake to resemble a nest, superb.

    My 13-year old daughter is mad on baking .. and bakes the best cup-cakes I've ever eaten. These Chocolate Fudge Easter Cakes are superb ... and terribly moreish. I think there'll be another batch made next weekend too! These were equally as good to eat, and easy to make, as the Lemon (and poppyseed) cupcakes also on the Good Food site .. and I didn't think the Lemon ones could be beaten. However, these Choc-Fudge ones are now tied in first place!!

    These were easy to make but personally not chocolatey enough for me! The icing was nice though.

    Just made these for a dinner party. Super easy and it was delicious and everyone loved it! I didn't have any maltesers or small chocolate balls, so I replaced them with some chopped almonds and macadamia nuts. It worked wonders! Will definately be making this again!

    I also creamed the butter & sugar before adding the remainder of the cupcake ingredients and made a white chocolate frosting instead - beautiful!

    Delicious! Really easy and simple to make. Used butter icing for the frosting as I didn't have any chocolate. Yummy!!
