Baking with the monkeys
This weekend we had Eloise's big cousins James and Emily to stay. This called for some group baking making clever use of the copious amounts of Easter egg chocolate Eloise received.
James supervised Eloise's bowl whilst Emily rode solo. The recipe was a chocolate oil cake (oil used instead of butter) We added cocoa powder and melted milk and white chocolate in the mix to make a very rich flavour. The mixing went well but transference into the cupcake cases proved a little messy - especially with Eloise involved!
Amazingly the cake rose really well and we topped them with a chocolate ganache and butterscotch pieces.
The cakes were demolished in record time and Eloise was so enthusiastic she required a bath afterwards!
