Chocolate Butterfly Cakes
Boy was keen to bake yesterday after dinner and we decided on chocolate butterfly cakes. Here's how we did it. Ingredients; 100g butter, 100g caster sugar, 2 eggs, 75g self raising flour, 25g cocoa.
Beat the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Then add the eggs, one at a time, and beat into the mixture.
Then add the flour and cocoa, a few spoonfuls at a time, and gently mix in using a metal spoon.
Then place a teaspoonful into cake cases. I got 15 cakes out of this mixture.
Bake for 10-15 minutes in the oven at 180 degrees. Allow to cool.
For the icing you will need; 50g butter, 75g icing sugar, 25g cocoa, a spoonful of milk. Beat all the ingredients together until light and fluffy.
To make the butterflies cut a disk from the top of each cake using a sharp knife.
Cut the disk in half.
Put a spoonful of icing on the top and then arrange the 'wings' on the top!
Dust with icing sugar and you're finished. A nice alternative to a plain butterfly cake. These are also a big hit with Daddy!
