Chocolate Drizzled Baby Butter Cakes

This is a super delicious butter cake - make it in cup-cake cases, make it in in mini square tin tray as I did, or make it in a regular single tin.  It is not expensive - using basic baking products you should have in your home.  No need to add the chocolate drizzles.  Makes about 16 small cakes - a treat for the kids (and Mum and Dad!)


125g (4oz) very soft butter
1 teaspoon vvanilla
1 cup white sugar 
3 eggs
1 1/2 cups plain (all purpose) flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda (baking soda)
1/2 cup (4 to oz) milk

Preheat your oven to 150oC (300oF)
Mix all ingredients together in mixer bowl till smooth
Put into separate cake tins or one tin greased and floured
Bake till lightly browned and bounces back when tapped on top

Chocolate ganache

100g good dark chocolate
1/2 cup cream

Melt together in a saucepan over low heat. Drizzle over small cakes or pour over a large single cake to cover completely, I use a clip shut (zip lock) bag and put the ganache in then snip off the corner - simple instant throw away piping bag!
