Chocolate Christmas Pudding Cakes

Things are starting to look very festive in this house and yesterday we made some Chocolate Christmas pudding cakes.  I was inspired to make these after seeing Sarah had made some over on Instagram as part of her advent calender. We already had the sprinkles in the baking cupboard so i was pleased to find a cute use for them.

I must confess I don't actually like real Christmas pudding but these super easy chocolate christmas pudding cakes are so cute and they would be fab for kids Christmas parties. You could even make a full size cake for those who aren't keen on the real deal. The recipe made 8 cakes, but of course it is easily adapted to make more if needed. It is so simple that it is a perfect child friendly recipe.

For the cakes

100g butter, room temperature
100g castor sugar
30g cocoa
70g self raising flour
2 medium eggs, lightly beaten

Preheat oven to 180°. Prepare a fairy cake tin. Cream together the butter and sugar. add the eggs, self raising flour and cocoa and combine to make a smooth batter. Spoon directly into your cake tin or cases. Bake for 14-16 minutes. Once cool remove from the cake tin and remove cake cases if used. Slice off the top of the cake to leave a flat surface and turn the cakes upside down to get the Christmas pudding shape.

For the topping

40g white chocolate
Holly and berry sprinkles (I got these from Asda)

Melt the white chocolate and spoon over the upside down cakes, add some holly leaves and berry sprinkles. Leave for the chocolate to set.

These chocolate Christmas Pudding cakes are best enjoyed while watching a Christmas film with the tree lights on. 🎄
