During a quiet and relaxing weekend, I often get the urge to bake something. Today I felt like a bit of experimentation, so I made up this recipe for chocolate nutty cupcakes. They're very basically:
4oz sugar creamed into 4 oz marg, pop in two eggs (from the chicks) and then mix in 4oz self raising flour. For the flavour stir in 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder, 2 tblsp of shredded coconut and a small handful of chopped mixed nuts (I used almonds, pine nuts and hazelnuts). Spoon into cake cases and pop in the oven for 15-20mins. Easy!
The pictures are taken with the cake stand which Steph and Lou gave me for my birthday!
