Cooking with Kids: Chocolate Patty Cakes

Hello! I am back after a month and something :).   Been quite busy with work and all and it has been so much fun I forget to blog.........but the thing is I have been making the same thing every single week and I guess there is no point to blog about the same thing?

I have been baking with little ones and she is one of them in the photo lol.  Look at her tongue licking the chocolate off her chin!    We were making chocolate patty cakes and these are one of their favourites!!

Look at these girls have skills already! And they are only 2 and half years old :).

 I only helped them with the baking and mixing of the batter.  They transferred all the batter by themselves!!!

I just took this recipe off taste.com.au!  It is called the QUICK MIX CHOCOLATE CAKE.  But I made it into little patty cakes.  And takes about 20 to 30 minutes in the oven.

  • 270g (1 1/3 cups, firmly packed) brown sugar 
  • melted butter to grease
  • 185ml (3/4 cup) milk
  • 125g butter, cubed
  • 50g (1/2 cup) cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 150g (1 cup) self-raising flour
  • 2 tbs plain flour
  • 3 eggs, lightly whisked

  • Chocolate icing

  • 195g (11/4 cups) pure icing sugar
  • 1 tbs cocoa powder
  • 10g (2 tsp) butter, at room temperature
  • 1 tbs boiling water

Nom Nom Nom :)
