OK, so some of you may know I am on a bit of a health kick, so I promise you, these weren't for me !
We had my Grandparents visit this week so I thought I'd rustle them up a little something and to be honest with you, I had just bought these cute little loaf cases from Waitrose and had some spare cake mix from the cake pops I had been making, so I thought these were perfect.
So super easy mini mint choc loafs....
For the cake recipe I used the same weight of 2 eggs as caster sugar, self raising flour and un salted butter along with a tbsp of cocoa powder !
Fill the cases half full.
Now here comes the super easy bit - the mint glaze icing for the top ! I had never tried this before but I just mixed icing sugar with water to make a simple icing - and added more cocoa powder and voila ! Ooh and then a couple of drops of peppermint essence. I then added some essence to some of the white icing and drizzled it over the top !
I really love these little cases and the cakes went down very well too (OK I did try one little mouth full!) !
Do let me know if you try some please, I'd love to hear from you !
