  • 250g plain flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. bicarbonate of soda
  • 4 tbs. cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 100g milk chocolate (cut

  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 250ml milk
  • 90ml rapeseed oil

 For the topping:

  • 225g icing sugar (sifted)
  • 100g butter (softened)
  • 2 tbs. cocoa powder
  • 2 tbs. hot water
  • Mini Easter eggs


  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C, GM 5. Put 10 paper muffin cases into a muffin tray.
  2. Sift the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, cocoa powder and salt into a large bowl. Stir in the sugar and chocolate chunks.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat together the egg, vanilla extract and milk then mix in the oil. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and gently stir until just combined.
  4. Spoon the mixture into the muffin cases (until half full) and bake for 20-25 minutes then cool on a wire rack for at least 20 minutes.
  5. To decorate, cut the top off of the muffins to leave you with a flat area to decorate. Beat the icing sugar and butter together. Blend the cocoa and water to a smooth paste and beat into the butter mix. Pipe over the top of the muffins and decorate with mini Easter eggs.
