Chocolate Cream Cake Recipe – by popular demand!

In Recipes on October 20, 2008 at 5:54 pm


4oz caster sugar
4oz margarine (best not to use butter as it makes the cakes to o greasy)
3oz self raising flour
1oz cocoa powder
2 medium eggs
chocolate chips (lots are good, about half a cup, but don`t over do it as cakes will become too gooey)

Method –
Really really easy… (and lazy)
Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl, add in the eggs, mix well, add in chocolate chips.
Spoon 1 dessert spoon of mixture into each cake case – the mixture makes 9 cakes.
Bake at 180oC for 20-25mins.
Check cakes are ready by pushing lightly on the top, the cake should spring back up.

Allow cakes to cool thoroughly!

Filling –
Whip 150ml (half a carton) of cream until thick.
Cut a small lump out the top of each cake (but KEEP it!).
Spoon in a generous dollop of the cream.
Now for the tricky part… cut each lump in half, place one of these halves at each side of the cream (to make it look like a butterfly) and finally dust with icing sugar.

Enjoy with a nice cup of tea!
