I got a giant cupcake pan for my birthday last month and have been thinking what I could make with it. As it’s Christmas I thought I could use it to make a Chocolate Christmas pudding cake.
You will need:
Packet chocolate cake mix (cook as per instructions)
Giant cupcake pan or pudding steamer
1 cup of chocolate chips
Three jaffas lollies
Two spearmint leave lollies
I quantity of buttercream frosting
The pan I used was a Wiltshire one.
PARTYBAKE Big Cupcake Pan
I filled the top half only with a packet chocolate cake mix (a bit sinful I know but sometimes a packet mix is great when you’re pushed for time). I then added some choc chips to create the effect of the dried fruit. Probably about a cup.
It was the first time I’d used this pan but it took an hour to cook right through.
While the cake cooled I made some buttercream frosting http://www.bindybee.com/buttercream-frosting/ You won’t need the whole lot but you can freeze the left overs for another time.
When it’s cooled cut the bottom off to make it flat. Put some of your frosting on the top and decorate with three jaffas and two spearmint leave lollies.
