Making Monday – Chocolate Christmas Pudding Cupcakes

December 2, 2013

Now we are now in December and my festive cheer has reached fever pitch already. So this weeks Making Monday features the first of many christmas inspired makes that will be on the blog over the next few weeks. Today it’s a recipe but look out for lot’s of other christmas makes later in the week.

For little ones and people like me who don’t really like christmas pudding, a great option is to make these christmas pudding inspired chocolate cupcakes.


You will need…

60g butter at room temperature

60g caster sugar

1 large egg

60g self-raising flour

2 tbsp cocoa powder

1 tbsp milk

chocolate chip


For icing…

icing sugar


pre coloured green icing

red writing icing



Preheat oven to 190 degrees Gas Mark 5

Beat the butter and sugar together, gradually beat in the egg.

Sift the flour and cocoa powder together, then gentle fold in the wet ingredients and chocolate chips.

Place mixture in paper cases and bake for 12-15 mins.

Allow to cool.

Mix icing sugar and water into a thick mixture and spoon onto the middle of your cakes, leaving a gap around the outside.

Shape a little green icing into holly shapes and place in centre of white icing.

Add two dots of red writing icing to make the berries.

My holly still needs a little work, but I’m really happy with how these came out and will definitely be serving them on christmas day.
