In honour of #WorldChocolateDay I incorporated chocolate into my baking today. These mini sponges were made in my silicone friand tray and have a chocolate swirl added for a pretty visual effect.
Lovely for a little treat or for afternoon tea!
These are so easy to make but great to look at and will be popular with your guests whatever the occasion.
110 g butter
110 g caster sugar
110 g self-raising flour
2 tbsp cocoa powder
Weigh your butter, caster sugar and flour into a bowl.
Crack in the eggs and mix until smooth.
Split the mixture in half.
Keep one half plain and add the cocoa powder to the other half.
Grease your tray and spoon in the plain batter.
Spoon the chocolate batter in on one side of the plain.
Use a skewer or knife to make a marble effect on top.
Bake for approximately 15 minutes at 180 degrees or until golden brown and the cakes spring back when pressed.
Allow to cool on a cooling rack for a few minutes, then remove from the friand tray and leave to cool completely.
