Sunday Baking // Chocolate Mallow in the Middle Cakes

I saw these on Pinterest (which led me to TheShabbyCreekCottage Blog) & thought it was the best idea & sounded soooo yummy! Me & Nick were hosting a Birthday BBQ for some friends so I thought these would be perfect birthday cakes for everyone to eat post BBQ! I'll admit, I was feeling a little lazy so I picked up Betty Crockers Devils Food Cake Mix instead of making my own (sorry) but you could make your own chocolate cake mix from scratch. So here is my lazy version of Chocolate Mallow in the Middle Cakes... 

You will need:
  • Betty Crockers Devils Food Cake Mix
  • 3 Eggs
  • Vegetable Oil
  • Marshmallows x 2 Packets
  •  Betty Crockers Chocolate Fudge Icing
  • Wafer Butterflies to Decorate (optional)

  1.  Heat the oven to 180°C & line a cake tin with 24 cases.
  2. Following the steps on the Devils Food Cake Mix packet, mix all your ingredients together in a mixing bowl (or you could obviously make your own cake mix)
  3. Spoon the mix into 24 cupcake cases, filling each case half full with mixture.
  4. Gently push a marshmallow into the centre of each one & pop them in the oven for 15-20 minutes
  5. When they come out of the oven, they will look like a fat mess. But don't panic - it's okay (according to TheShabbyCreekCottage) ! Pop another marshmallow on top of the original one & put the cupcakes back into the oven for a further 2 minutes.
  6. Leave them until they have completely cooled - I think I left mine for about an hour - before adding Chocolate Fudge Icing to the top (or, again, you could make your own icing). Decorate with Wafer Butterflies - or any other edible cake decoration of your choice!

 And you're done! They are so simple & yummy. What do you think? They would be perfect to make with the kids on a rainy day during the summer holidays...!

 I absolutely love them & would also recommend the Betty Crocker Cake Mix if you are feeling lazy. I have never used a cake mix before so wasn't sure what to expect but in all honesty, it's so dreamy. And the Chocolate Fudge Icing is amazing too! The Marshmallows are a great little surprised too for those who aren't expecting it!

Let me know if you have a go at making these - I would love to see how they turn out for you!
