Chocolate Fairy cakes or cup cakes

Who doesn't like fairy/cup cakes? Now add chocolate to it and it becomes a must have. This ia another one of Anjalie's favorites and she helps make them too. We are not big on icing, so, we chose not to use much of it. But use your imagination and you can have fun decorating the cakes with your little one too.
You will need:
100g Self Raising flour (if not, plain flour + 2 tsps baking powder)
20g cadbury's cocoa powder
100g caster sugar (use more if you like them sweeter)
40g butter
2 eggs
1 tsp vannila extract
lining paper for the cakes
muffin baking tin/tray

Preheat the oven to 160 C (fan assisted). Meanwhile, whisk all the ingredients until creamy (takes 3 mins with a wire whisk)

and spoon into Muffin tin lined with wax papers/ cup cake paper.

Cook for 15 minutes until cooked. When a tooth pick is inserted in the middle it should come of clean.

Sorry, if the pictures show only 10 cupcakes, 2 of them disappeared into our tummies before I could grab the camera. Once cooled, the cakes can be decorated with icing, buttons, thousands and hundreds etc...

This recipe makes 12 small cup cakes.
