My Daughters Cupcake

My 12 year old daughter and her friend had a go at making some felt food on the weekend. I was very proud of what they made. My daughter is into hot pink at the moment as you can tell!

My daughters friend wanted the pattern to have a go at home, her mum is really going to love me as she's not really into crafts and doesn't sew much apart from sewing on buttons.

Self Saucing Chocolate Pudding

I have to share with you this yummy and very quick to make pudding........

Mix together:

2 cups self raising flour
1 and a half cups of sugar
third cup of cocoa
120g melted butter
1 cup milk

Put in a baking pan/dish

In a bowl mix together:

third cup of cocoa
1 cup sugar

Sprinkle this over the flour mixture in the baking dish, then pour 2 cups of hot water into the baking dish

Bake at 180 for 45mins (mine sometimes takes less so keep checking after 30mins)

Lovely with ice cream or cream
