  • 4oz self-raising flour
  • 4oz white sugar
  • 4oz unsalted butter
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 2-4 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • Handful of white chocolate chips (for best results use chocolate chunks instead)
  • 1 teaspoon of milk (optional)

You will also need small paper cake cases, a spoon, bowl, weighing scales, a baking tray and an oven!




  1. Add the flour and sugar to a mixing bowl, and stir until the sugar is well mixed in and the butter more creamy.

  3. Then slowly pour in your flour, crack in your eggs, and mix well. You should have something like this:



  5. Add the cocoa powder and mix well. Depending on how chocolatey you want your cakes, you can add more to make them darker and richer, and use only a bit for a mild taste. I went for the mid option:


  7. Add in your chocolate chips or chunks and stir. Then spread out your cake cases on the baking tray and divide the mixture equally between them:


  9. Bake at the top of the oven on Gas Mark 7 for around 12-15 minutes. To check if they are cooked, stick a fork or skewer into one and make sure it comes out clean.

  11. Transfer to a wire rack or plate to cool, et voila! They are nice warm or cold.
