Cupcake Challenge - Chocolate Fudge Cupcakes by Jack

The lovely Jenny from Mummy Mishaps, like a lot of us, loves cake, and she has come up with a great idea for a feature on her blog - I Love Cake, a monthly cake appreciation feature where everyone can share recipes of their favourite cakes. For the first week the theme is Cupcakes, complete with a competition.

Jack loves cooking and we try to do some weekly, especially now I have revived my 'Cooking with your Toddler' feature so I thought it would be rude not to bake cakes with him for Jenny's challenge.

So here is Jacks entry into the Mummy Mishaps Cupcake Challenge (spot the spelling mistake - a challenge for The Boy And Me who can get out her red pen!) :

If you didn't manage to catch the recipe here it is (taken from the back of a pack of Silver Spoon Mini Fudge Chunks)

Chocolate Fudge Cupcakes

100g Butter
125g Light Muscovado Sugar
3 Eggs
1tsp Vanilla Extract
200g SR Flour
1tsp Baking Powder
50g Mini Fudge Chunks
50g Chocolate Chips

  • Pre-heat oven to 180 ÂșC
  • Line 12 hole Muffin/Cupcake pan with cases
  • Melt 100g butter with 125g light Muscovado Sugar, stir to dissolve and allow to cool

  1. Wow!! That's ana amazing entry and amazing looking cakes! Well done Jack what a cooking star :) you can see he has helped make cakes before - this spooningnthe mixture into paper cases is brilliant :)
    Thank you so much for entering xx

  2. thanks Jenny, he really does love it, although I do have to help him out a bit with the mixing & spooning (this mixture was very sticky) , just need to work on his egg cracking technique! He took one bite of the cake & in true Jack / Burton style said 'I not like it' and ate the leftover choc chips instead!! We did another video on Friday that I will post this week & may actually do a Linky every week as everyone seems to be doing a lot of cooking with the kids at the moment. x

  3. haha, I am so cruel to you aren't I !!! x

  4. I have to make these as well! Fab video, love Jack's involvement.

    And I can only thank the lord that my red pen is not permanent or I'd be looking at a red circle now on the screen!
