    Substituted some flour for cocoa and added double amt of choc chips because of what I had in my pantry. Baked for 25mins on 170 fan and got a great result.

    I agree with many on here-delicious but this recipe made 12 fairy muffins rather than fairy cakes (I put them in muffin cases in the first instance).

    Poor should be a muffin recipe and needs longer in oven than stated!

    Leave out the baking powder! It makes it rise too much if you are using self raising flour in my experience

    Can I add 50g extra chocolate chips if I don't have any fudge pieces?
    Hi there, yes replacing the fudge pieces for extra chocolate chips should work fine. Happy Baking!
