    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.

    I have made these many many times and frosted with various different toppings. Easy, quick and delicious - they never last long in this house! I am going to have a go at making them in mini cupcake cases for my daughter's birthday party. Yum! A trial run, or cooks treat?? ;)

    Very quick from start to finish. I made tiny ones with piped frosting & choc balls etc. to decorate. Looked very pretty. Only 2 stars as nothing 'fudgy' about cakes!
