Afternoon Tea Fancies

By Emily Jones

175 g Unsalted Butter

1775 g Fairtrade Demerara Sugar

3 Free Range Eggs

75 g Plain Flour

1 tbsp Fairtrade Cocoa Powder

1 tsp Baking Powder

Coating:

25 g Butter

125 g Fairtrade Dark Chocolate

5 tbsp Icing Sugar

50 g Fairtrade Milk Chocolate

50 g Fairtrade White Chocolate

1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees (Fan 140 degrees or Gas Mark 3). In a large bowl, beat together the butter and sugar with an electric whisk. Gradually add the eggs until the mixture binds.


2. Sieve the flour, cocoa and baking powder and fold in. The mixture should drop easily from a spoon. If it's too stiff, add a little water.


3. Spoon into a 23 cm square cake tin and bake for 30-35 minutes. Remove from the tin and leave to cool before cutting into 25 pieces.


4. For the icing, melt the butter and dark chocolate with 4 tbsp of water and mix in the icing sugar, Spread over each cake using a small palette knife. Leave to set for a few minutes, and then drizzle the melted milk chocolate using a teaspoon. Repeat with the white chocolate.
