For the afternoon tea in France a few weeks ago (see here) I made some mini muffins to a recipe by Delia Smith. I spotted the recipe in one of her older cook books, simply called "Baking", when I was actually looking for something else - the lemon curd layer cake that's on the cover (and in the next post).
I wanted some little bite sized cakes to adorn the top layer of the cake stand and these sounded perfect for the job. I haven't found the recipe anywhere on the internet but it does seem that chocolate, prune and Armagnac (or other alcohol) is a combo that Delia is quite fond of as she has other recipes such as for a cake, mini cakes and a chocolate log. I can't fault it - they are a match made in heaven...well probably not quite that saintly, owing to the booze!
