Method

  1. Step 1:

    Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C fan, gas mark 4). Line a cup cake tin with 12 paper cupcake cases.

  2. Step 2:

    Place the butter and sugar in a mixing bowl and beat with a wooden spoon or electric mixer until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in the eggs, a little at a time until smooth, adding a little flour if the mixture curdles.

  3. Step 3:

    Stir in the flour, cocoa and baking powder, until evenly mixed.

  4. Step 4:

    Place a heaped dessertspoon full of the mixture in each cupcake case and bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown and just firm to the touch. Allow to cool on a wire rack.

  5. Step 5:

    To decorate, mix together the icing sugar, butter and cocoa powder. Spread over the cupcakes and sprinkle with rice crispy cereal. Top with the mini eggs. These cake will keep 3-4 days in a cake tin.
