I tried a recipe yesterday given to me by the World Child Cancer charity and they worked out really well.

The charity improves cancer diagnosis, treatment and care for some of the world’s poorest children and they need our help – in case you’re interested they’ve got a walk coming up on the 22nd September in Richmond Park and a half marathon on the 4th October in the Royal Parks – you can find further details from the link below:-


If you want any more information on the charity – here is a link to their website www.worldchildcancer.org, but in the meantime, try out the recipe and sell them to your friends (or even better to yourself):-

A recipe from Divine Chocolate

250g (90z) plain flour
1/2 tsp salt
3 tsp baking powder
100g (40z) Fairtrade castor sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
120 ml (4 fl oz) milk
125g plain yoghurt
75g (30z) butter, melted and cooled
100g bar of Divine Milk Chocolate Orange

12 muffin cases

Pre-heat oven to 200° C, 400°F, Gas Mark 6
Put paper cases into muffin tin

Sift together the flour, salt, baking powder and sugar, set aside.
In a separate bowl mix together the egg, milk, yoghurt and melted butter.

Pour the wet ingredients into the flour mixture and stir lightly until just combined, adding the chocolate chunks and stirring them through gently . The mixture will be quite lumpy, though there should be no dry flour visible.


Spoon the mixture into the muffin cases:-


Bake for approximately 20 minutes or until the tops spring back when lightly touched.
