INGREDIENTS

4 cups all-purpose flour

3 cups granulated sugar

11/2 cups cocoa powder

2 cups milk

2 cups luke-warm water

1 cup vegetable oil (to keep them moist)

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 teaspoons salt

3 teaspoons baking powder

4 eggs

METHOD

Pour dry ingredients into a bowl and stir.

Mix wet ingredients into a pile together as well, the more whipped and fluffy the better.

Pour into paper muffin holders on a baking pan.

Place in preheated oven at 180 degrees.

Cook for 15-20 minutes.

To check if ready, stab with a fork. They are cooked if the fork comes out clean. Ifmixture sticks to the fork, cook a little longer.

Once done, leave to cool.

Pack as many as you would like.

You can add choc chips or blueberries to the mixture for something different.
