Making Toffee Fudge Cakes – the easy way!

Last week I heard that it was National Cupcake Week – so how could we not make a cake! Luckily the other day we had bought some easy ready mixed products as part of our grocery shop:

  • Wright’s Toffee Cake Mix 500g – 80p (on offer, normally £1.70)
  • Mini Cornish Fudge Chucks – £1.50
  • Betty Crocker Chocolate Fudge Icing 400g – £2.15

All we needed to add was vegetable oil and water, plus we already had muffin cases and a muffin tray in the cupboard.


1) After pre-heating the oven to 160°C (we have a fan oven, so that’s 180°C or Gas Mark 5 for normal ovens), I put 200ml water and 4 tablespoons of vegetable oil into a bowl, and Tyler poured the mix in.


2) We gave it a good stir. The packet says to use an electric whisk, but we used a good old-fashioned wooden spoon.


3) Next we added in half of the packet of cornish fudge pieces.

4) After a stir, the batter was ready. Tyler then put a muffin case into each section of our muffin tray.


5) And then I poured the batter into each case, topping each one with more fudge pieces.


6) I put the trays in the pre-heated oven for 18 minutes.

After 18 minutes, I took them out to cool, and then iced a couple of them with the choc fudge icing and topped with more fudge. Here is how they looked!


And they got the thumbs up from us too – very very sweeeet.


In total, the ready mixed products cost £4.45 for 12 muffins – so that makes it 37p per muffin. Not too bad, and you’re kind of guaranteed that they’ll turn out okay. I know it’s cheating, and we don’t always do this, but that’s my guide to making cakes the easy way – no eggs, no sieving, no mess!

    • Heehee, after all these lovely homemade recipes I see on people’s blog, I felt like we were cheating, but you’re right, this way Tyler practically made the cake himself! He loves cakes, he’s got a proper sweet tooth! xx
