Rich chocolate fairy cakes
- Asda Sugar Coated Mini Eggs, to decorate
- 150g Asda Dark Chocolate (60% cocoa solids), broken into squares
- 175g unsalted butter
- 1 tbsp golden syrup
- 175g self-raising flour
- 25g cocoa powder
- 125g soft brown sugar
- 2 large free-range eggs
- 100ml whole milk, plus 1-2 tbsp
- 100g icing sugar
Pre-heat the oven to 160C/140C Fan/Gas 3. Line two bun trays with paper cases. Put 100g of the chocolate, 125g of the butter and the golden syrup in a bowl and stand it over a pan of simmering water until the chocolate is melted. Remove the bowl. Set the mixture aside until cool but still liquid.
Sift the flour and cocoa into a bowl and stir in the sugar.
Lightly beat the eggs with 100ml milk. Add to the chocolate, then stir in the flour until evenly mixed.
Spoon into the cakes and bake for 20-25 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
Melt the remaining chocolate as before. Leave until cold but still liquid.
Beat the rest of the butter with the icing sugar and 1-2 tbsp milk until creamy. Beat in the chocolate. Spread on the cakes and decorate with mini eggs.
