Preheat the oven to 180 C and line a cupcake tray with 12 paper cases

Beat the butter and sugar until light and creamy.

Then, add the eggs one at a time, beating continuously with an electric whisk.

Sieve the flour and cocoa powder and fold in until fully incorporated in the mixture.

Divide the mixture between the cupcake cases, about two-thirds full.

Bake in the oven for 15 -20 minutes, until well risen and firm to the touch. Allow to cool.

Spread a thin layer of jam on top of the cupcakes, then gently dip in the crushed Cadbury Flake. Top with two or three colourful Easter mini-eggs.

Top tip

Test to see if your cupcakes are fully baked by removing the tray from the oven and listening for hissing noise. If the tray is silent, the cupcakes are ready.
