I can't actually believe how good these taste, especially since I just threw them together so they were in the oven by the time we sat down to eat dinner. As they were quite literally thrown together, these are the weights, I think I put together as I didn't use any scales or measurements.
- 2 tbsp cocoa powder
- 150g plain flour
- 1tsp baking powder
- 150g sugar
- 150g margarine (I used olive oil spread)
- 2 eggs
- 2 hand fulls of blackberry's
I first sieved all the dry ingredients together then I added the margarine and eggs and stirred until incorporated. Once the mixture came together, I put 1 tbsp of mixture into a cupcake case and then pushed in 2-3 blackberry's into each case.
These took about 15minutes to cook at 180 degrees C and the mixture made about 18 small cupcakes.
I then iced them using a simple butter icing which I coloured with lavender food colouring. To finish them off I swirled in some Cadburys chocolate Philidelphia spread and added some chocolate stars I had lying around. Even neil, who is a new convert to any kind of fruit, loved these. They kind of taste like chocolate goodness with little bits of fruity jam bursting in your mouth.
