I wish all of my readers a Merry, Happy & Fun Christmas filled with joy, warmth, really good food & many Christmas presents too! 🙂
A great decorated real Christmas tree, hey? ! What do you think about my carved out tree stall?
Now, a last-minute, tasty recipe from Sophie’s Foodie Files: Yummie mini chocolate cakes! Great to enjoy, after dinner, with a good café latte or a good cup of fresh coffee! 😉 Check them out!
How did I make them? Let’s see,…
Recipe: For 30 mini cakes!
175 gr butter, on room temperature
175 gr white castor sugar
150 gr self-raising flour
30 gr unsweetened cacao powder
3 large organic eggs, on room temperature, beaten
2 tablespoons of milk
1. Preheat your oven to 180°C ( 350 F ) for 10 minutes.Take your large Kenwood machine, place the K-paddle in & use the larger Kenwood bowl. In here, add butter. Add sugar, in portions, gradually to the butter while mixing on medium-speed. If you don’t have a Kenwood or Kitchen Aid, stir the sugar gradually to the butter with a large wooden spoon! Now, add cacao & self-raising flour. Mix on half speed. Add beaten eggs & milk too. Mix on higher speed until fully mixed.
2. Take your silicon baking mats with smaller mini cakes size. I used 2 silicon baking mats with each time 15 mini cake holes! Fill each hole for 3/4. My mini cakes are patterned in the bottom like a little flower. You must use them upside down! They will shine a bit! That is typical of silicon baking! Place the baking mats on a stable oven rack & shake the baking mats a bit to the left & right. This is to prevent air bubbles. Bake in the hot oven for about 12 to 15 minutes or until cooked through when tested with a pin in the middle of the cakes!
3. Carefully, with oven gloves on, take oven racks, with baking mats on them, out of the oven. Leave the mini cakes in the baking mats for about 10 minutes. This will prevent braking them & will make the bottom of each cake, that will be the top, shiny! That is typical of silicon baking, just like the picture above! ;) Then, flop them out of each silicon form & place them on wire racks to cool down completely! 😉 Eat them or store them in cake boxes to enjoy later! Don’t forget the café latte to drink with it! 😉 Enjoy, my lovely ones! 🙂 xxx Stay tuned, Subscribe by email through the link below to get my new cool newsletters aka posts!
