Chocolate Coconut Cupcakes

Turns out I did find the time to make cakes this week. Admittedly not a complicated recipe – an adaptation of the 2-4-6-8 Cake – but even so.

So for the cakes:

2 eggs

4oz butter

6oz sugar

8oz flour (if plain, add 2tsp baking powder)

1oz cocoa powder

Plus up to 1cup water/milk. I used water.

Cream together the butter and sugar. Stir in the eggs.

Add the flour and cocoa powder and mix well. Add water/milk until it looks like cake batter.

I meant to add chocolate chips, but I got distracted and forgot. But do so, if you wish.

Spoon into cases and bake at a moderate temperature for about half an hour.

Allow to cool.

For the icing:

Chocolate, about 8oz

160ml coconut milk

2 tbsp honey

2tsp vanilla essence

Icing sugar to taste

Marshmallows/edible glitter (optional)

Melt the chocolate and stir in the coconut milk, honey and vanilla. Mix well.

Add the icing sugar to your preferred taste. Spoon onto the cakes and decorate.
