This Sunday is Fathers Day and the perfect time to spoil dad. What better way to treat dad than with some cake!
I was recently sent some delicious chocolates from Lindt to use in a recipe. However Lindt chocolates are perfect just as they are. They are the perfect sweet treat to add to the top of a cake. I was sent some boxes of Lindt selection to try.

- Almond Praline and Cocoa Nibs
- Dark Hazelnut and Orange Cluster
- Milk Chocolate Meringue
- Dark Coffee Intense
- Luscious Velvety Caramel

Today I am going to share with you an easy chocolate cake recipe that is perfect for the little ones to help with.
This is what I did...
Chocolate Cupcake with Lindt
150g light brown muscovado sugar
140g self raising flour
10g cocoa powder
2tbsp golden syrup
250g Icing sugar
2tsp cocoa powder
12 Lindt Selection chocolates
Pre heat the oven to 180C
1 - Beat together the butter and sugar until light and creamy
2 - Add the eggs, one a a time with a little flour to prevent curdling
3 - Mix in the remaining flour and cocoa powder
4 - Finally stir in the golden syrup
5 - Divide the mixture between 12 cupcake cases
6 - Place in the centre of the preheated oven and bake for 20 minutes
7 - Once thoroughly baked remove from the oven and allow to cool completely
8 - Once cooled prepare the butter icing by mixing the butter until smooth then gradually add the icing sugar. I have a double icing container if you want to use two colours of icing divide into two bowls and in one add the cocoa powder
9 - Decorate the cupcakes and finish by topping with a Lindt chocolate
These chocolate cakes are deliciously moist and the added golden syrup gives them a rich finish. If your dad loves chocolate cakes and Lindt chocolate why not make his day and give him a box of yummy cupcakes!
