Blogmas Day 20: Baking Christmas Pudding Cakes!

It’s Blogmas Day 20!

Today I thought I’d share another bake. This time it’s little chocolate cakes that look like tiny Christmas puddings!

110g caster sugar

To make the cakes, I started by putting some cake cases into cake trays. I chose these little red and white festive cases because I couldn’t resist buying them in the supermarket!

I then mixed all of the ingredients together in a mixing bowl.

Once everything was thoroughly blended together, I divided the mixture between the cake cases.

I put the trays in the oven and let the cakes bake at 160 degrees for 20-25 minutes.

Leaving the cakes to one side to cool, I prepared the icing.

I mixed the icing sugar and water together to make the icing.

When the cakes were cool I spooned a little bit of icing on the top of each cake allowing it to drip down the sides a little.

Finally, I added the little holly sprinkles to the top of each cake for a little festive touch!

I hope you are are having a lovely December. Can you believe it’s the 20th already?! I’ve got a day off tomorrow so I’m going to finish my shopping and have some lazy, Christmas movie time!
