Yesterday was 'D' day for me on twitter and thanks to Nicola Morgan's book I am *mastering* haha, tweetdeck.  An awesome tool and the man who thought of it deserves every penny he received imho.  It's not the number of followers you manage to find, it is the quality of said followers in that they are nice and  normal people who are interested in the same things I am - writing, chocolate, wine and cake.  So here's a recipe to kick us off.


1/2 Cup Cream Cheese.
1Tablespoon Cornflour
1 Tablespoon Sugar
1 1/2 Cup Flour
1/2 Cup Sugar
2 Tablespoon Cocoa
2 Teaspoon Baking Powder
Pinch salt.
1 Egg, slightly beaten
1/2 Cup milk
1/3 Cup oil

Preheat oven to 180 degrees celcius.
Mix the first three ingredients - cream cheese, cornflour and sugar together and set aside.  Combine flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder and salt.  Mix thoroughly.  Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients. Combine egg, milk and oil.  Add to dry ingredients and mix till just combined.  Spoon 2 teaspoons of mixture into greased muffins tins and drop 1 teaspoon of cheese mixture on top, then fill with more batter.  Bake at 180 degrees C for 20 - 25 minutes.

  1. Ahh, I think in the USA it must be called something else. It's the flour you use to thicken a gravy, it's very fine and you mix it with water/milk first to make it smooth.

    I shall find out.
