Ingredients

For the icing

Method

  • STEP 1

    Ask a grown-up to switch the oven on to 180C/160C fan/ gas 4. Break the eggs into a small bowl and scoop out any bits of shell, then tip them into a large bowl.

  • STEP 2

    Put the sugar and butter in a bowl, then sift over the flour, baking powder and cocoa.

  • STEP 3

    Beat everything together using a wooden spoon or electric beaters, then stir in the chocolate drops.

  • STEP 4

    Spoon half of the mixture into each tin and smooth the tops.

  • STEP 5

    Ask a grown-up to bake the cakes for 20-25 mins or until risen and a skewer comes out clean. Cool in the tin for 5 mins, then turn out onto a rack.

  • STEP 6

    Beat the butter and icing sugar, then fold in the chocolate. Spread over the middle, sandwich the cakes together, then dust with icing sugar.
