  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry mix and combine until all throughly mixed and coated in sticky honey.
  • Equally divide the mix into the muffin tin and press down firmly.
  • Using a shot glass or your hands, press down to make the sides come up and create a cup look with the indentation.
  • Bake for about 12-15 mins until golden brown.
  • Shape when it comes straight out of the oven if it has lost shape using a small spoon. 
  • Let it cool completely in the tin. Run a sharp knife around the edge to loosen slightly to remove them from the tin. 
  • Top with your choice of filling

Chocolate Orange 

  • Melt 300g of dark chocolate in a Bain Marie ensuring it doesn't touch the water. 
  • Add 1/2 tsp of orange extract and 50g of butter/coconut oil. Melt until smooth and silky, if more butter or oil is needed add to the mix. Consistency should be not too runny and not too thick.
  • Using a spoon fill the cups and leave to set in the fridge until hard.

Citrus Honey glazed cake 

Citrus Honey Cake
  • 250g honey, plus about 2 tbsp extra to glaze
  • 225g unsalted butter
  • 100g dark muscovado sugar
  • 3 large eggs, beaten
  • 300g self-raising flour
  • Preheat the oven to fan 140C/ conventional 160C/gas 3. Butter and line a 20cm round cake tin. Cut the butter into pieces and put into a medium pan with the honey and sugar. Melt slowly over a low heat. When the mixture looks quite liquid, increase the heat under the pan and boil for about one minute. Leave to cool for 15-20 minutes, to prevent the eggs cooking when they are mixed in.
  • Beat the eggs into the melted honey mixture using a wooden spoon. Sift the flour into a large bowl and pour in the egg and honey mixture, beating until you have a smooth, quite runny batter.
  • Pour the mixture into the tin and bake for 50 minutes-1 hour until the cake is well-risen, golden brown and springs back when pressed. A skewer pushed into the centre of the cake should come out clean.
  • Turn the cake out on a wire rack. Warm 2 tbsp honey in a small pan and brush over the top of the cake to give a sticky glaze. Sprinkle over some chopped pistachios (optional) then leave to cool.
