    Delicious thank you, I cooked them a little longer but they still didn't rise as well as they might do will add extra baking powder and perhaps flour  next time

  • These are very tasty, though

    These are very tasty, though my second batch didn't rise as well, and I think I used above the suggested amount of bicarb and baking powder in my first batch, but as for the recipe in the second.

    We haven't iced them as yet, since they disappear too quickly! Great for lunchbox snacks.

    Thank you for this lovely recipe. Very easy, nice texture and super tasty!

    These little cupcakes do not like to leave the safety of their cups but, nothing that can't be tackled with a teaspoon  tmrc_emoticons.)

    I think these will become a firm favourite. 

    I ground the spices as suggested in the tip and, used cacao powder - makes heaps, so I'll have some for my next batch or might even add to some hot milk for a choc-chai latte.

    tmrc_emoticons.)really yummy! Cooked for 20 mins on 180! But I used a chai powder from a friend who has a coffee bean shop. I used this instead of tea leaves and the additional spices!
