Husb and Chef have been playing Chess in every spare moment (or so it seems). The Chess set has been missing a Bishop for as long as I can remember, and Chef has recently replaced this old set with a 50p second-hand one. This has caused some excitement among the Chess players who live here (!)
Although this may look like an ordinary cupcake (if there is such a thing) it is infact a totally yum molten chocolate centred cupcake. Tigergirl has discovered a new trick ... basically follow the easy choccy sponge recipe below, BUT THE TRICK IS to pop a largish chunk of chocolate (milk or white) onto the half filled cakecase, then cover over with more mixture. When they come out of the oven they hide the warm, gooey scrummy melted choccy centre. We were all impressed & apparently it's so easy!
Makes 8 Warm molten-centred chocolate cupcakes
2 oz soft margarine
2oz caster sugar (we just use ordinary)
1 large egg
3oz self-raising flour
1 tablespoon of cocoa powder
2oz of chocolate for the chunks that go in the middle
Super easy... bung everything into a bowl and whisk it all up till it's smooth. Spoon half the mixture into the paper cases. Use a teaspoon to make an indentation in the centre of each one. Break the 2oz of chocolate into 8 chunks and pop a bit in each indentation. Then just spoon the remaining mix on top. Bake for 20 mins. But let them cool 2-3 mins so you don't burn your mouth.

I'd recommend doubling the recipe like we did or it's not really enough! I often see recipes on blogs and we've even tried a few. This recipe is easy & yum ...what could be better?!
