85g self raising flour

25g cocoa powder

½ tsp baking powder

115g margarine

115g golden caster sugar

2 eggs

2tbsp milk

For the icing…..

100g butter

200g icing sugar

1 or 2 tbsp Nutella

Method

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C / 350°F / Gas Mark 4 and put 12 cupcake cases in a cupcake tray.

2. Cream the butter and sugar together in a mixing bowl.

3. Whisk the eggs together in a mug using a fork and then add gradually to the mixing bowl.  Beat each time you add more egg.

5. Sift the flour and cocoa powder if needed and then fold gently into the mixture with the baking powder.

6. Share out the mixture evenly into the cupcake cases and then bake for 15 to 20 minutes.

7. To make the icing, cream the butter and then gradually mix in the icing sugar.  Then mix in a couple of dollops of Nutella.
