Steve Joll's recipes - Fudge cake, mini cheese muffins - 28 April

Fudge Cake

If you're feeling some pent-up frustration, this is the one's for you! An old family recipe handed down from generation to generation.

150g butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 tbsp cocoa (heaped)
2 eggs
2 packets Superwine biscuits

No baking required here, so your prep is just fun. Wrap the biscuits in a tea-towel and bash the crap out of them with a rolling pin. Brilliant! Now tip the bits of biscuit into a LARGE mixing bowl.

Okay, now chuck the butter and sugar in a pot together over a low heat - really low - and melt it all together. Get this part right or the cake will be grainy from un-melted sugar. Chuck in the cocoa and stir it all through. Let it cool.

In a separate bowl beat the eggs till they're frothy like yellow beer. Then tip that into the chocolatey stuff and stir it up.

Throw the mixture over the biscuits and mix it all together. About now you'll be thinking you used too many biscuits - don't panic. It's supposed to be crumbly like that.

Pour the cake mix out into a tin. You might want to line the tin with baking paper - I have a non-stick tin, so no biggie. Ice with chocolate icing. Chuck it in the fridge and wait.

Tip: Make sure the biscuits are Superwine or Wheatmeal or something with a bit of substance.

Cheese Mini-Muffins

Super quick to mix, the kids will love spooning them onto the tray cos it's a hands-dirty thing to do. Top them with salmon or bacon and you're away!

1 cup flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
2 cups grated cheese
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup milk

Get your oven to 200degC first. This is so fast that it'll barely have time to pre-heat.

Sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl. In a separate bowl whisk the egg till it goes frothy. Tip the egg, milk and cheese into the flour and mix well. Done. Just like that.

Grease a piece of baking paper and line your baking tray. Using a teaspoon, put blobs of the mix onto the tray or into your mini-muffin tray. You'll end up with about 25. NOT TOO CLOSE TO EACH OTHER.

Bake for about 10 mins or till they're golden.
