INGREDIENTS

CHOCOLATE CAKE
4 tbsp water boiling
40g cocoa powder
3 eggs
175g butter (unsalted) softened
165g caster sugar 
115g self-raising white flour
1 tsp baking powder 

CHOCOLATE ICING
60g butter (unsalted)
30g cocoa powder
3 tbsp milk
250g icing sugar 

METHOD

1. Line two 12-hole muffin tins with paper cases. Sift the cocoa powder into a bowl, pour in the boiling water and mix into a thick paste. Add the remaining cake ingredients and mix with an electric hand whisk (or beat with a wooden spoon)

2. Divide the mixture equally between the 24 paper cases. Bake in a preheated oven at 200°C for about 10 minutes until well risen and springy to the touch. Cool in the cases on a wire

3. To make the chocolate icing melt the butter and pour it into a bowl. Sift in the cocoa powder and stir in the icing sugar a little at a time to make a glossy and spreadable. If the icing is too thick, gradually add the milk until it reaches the desired consistency. Using a palette knife spread the icing over the cakes and leave to set before serving
