chocolate fairy cakes

Post  poppyseed on 11.02.11 17:59

hi all tried chocolate fairy cakes today and they came out perfect so thought i would share.
Ingredients
4oz marg
4oz castor sugar
4oz self raising flour
1tsp baking powder
2 eggs
3oz cocoa powder
method
cream the marg and the sugar together,beat the eggs and gradually add to the marg and sugar mixture,if it curdles add a few spoons of flour inbetween,when combined and creamy in texture add the flour and the baking powder and the cocoa powder and mix well together until all ingredients are totally combined.I use a 6 hole bun tin which fits into my halogen oven lined with cake cases,spoon a dessert spoonful of mixture into each case.place the bun tin on the low rack in the oven and set the oven to 160oc for 15 mins and place the extender ring on top,I dont know if it was the heat of the bun tin on the bottom of the cakes but they came out perfectly cooked all the way through and well risen,for plain fairy cakes just omit the chocolate.

Hi Poppyseed
Cooka here in South Australia. Looking forward to trying this recipe. One question, did you pre-heat the HO?

Hi poppyseed


I have just baked your chocolate cakes, just checking on the amount of cocoa powder, as my girls said they tasted a little bit bitter in taste so next time I will use less cocoa, but otherwise they cooked really well , I did mine in silicone cases. thank you for your recipe

I couldn't wait to try these. It is the first thing I have cooked in my oven and I must say a big success. I did mine as muffins with some choc chips and the ingredients given by poppyseed made 6 muffins. It made an excellent dessert with some strawberries and cream. Now checking what I can try out next Very Happy

Using Flora and Flora Cusine will help maintain cholestral levels, and using sugar substitutes are great for diabetic cooking. My hubby loves sweet calorific stuff, he's none the wiser that I use Cusine in most of my cooking and sugar substitutes lol. This maintains both his sugars and cholestral and he gets his sweet fix lol.
