  • 4 oz Margerine
  • 4 oz Caster Sugar
  • 4 oz Self Raising Flour
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 splash of milk
  • 1 Tablespoon of cocoa (if wanted)
  • 100g or 200g (depends how chocolatey you want it) of chocolate chips

Utensils Needed

  • Bowl
  • Wooden Spoon
  • Tabespoon
  • Teaspoon
  • Knife if wanted
  • Baking Tray
  • Cupcake Cases
  • Cooling Rack
  • Hand/Electric Whisk
  • Fingers to eat excess mixture


  1. Turn the oven on to Gas Mark 5. Get out a bowl and a wooden spoon.

  2. Measure out you sugar first and put it into the bowl, then do the same with the margerine. With the wooden spoon cream the sugar and butter together until creamy.

  3. When you've done that, measure out the flour and sift it into the butter and sugar. Then, if want your cakes to be chocolate, then put in the cocoa at this point aswell.

  4. With the whisk, beat the ingredients together until theres no lumps of butter or flour. Then add 1 of the eggs to the bowl, whisk it until gone then do the same with the second.

  5. If you want chocolatee chips in your cakes then pour them in now and mix them in with the wooden spoon, not the whisk.

  6. Get out a baking tray and put cupcake cases in the holes. Then add 2 teaspoons of the mixture in each of them. If there is any leftover mixture, add it into the cases which look like they need a bit more, or alternatley make more cakes!

  7. With oven gloves, put your tray into the oven. Every 5-10 minutes check to see if they are done (if not sure pull out the tray with oven gloves on and press you finger gently onto the middle of the cakes. It should slowly rise back up if they are done.

  8. When cakes are ready, let them cool on a metal rack. If you want them cooled quickly put them in the frudge for 10-15 minutes. When cooled, decorate them however! Then enjoy!
