Mandarin-Choc Cupcakes

Recipe contributed by Hazel Foster.


  • 4oz CSR Smart White
  • 4oz Dairy Free Margarine (Nuttlex is best, but you can make this with regular margarine if you like)
  • 2 eggs
  • 4oz Self Raising Flour
  • Half a cup dark choc chips
  • Half a small Tin of Mandarins


  1. Preheat Oven to 180 degrees
  2. Cream sugar and Marg
  3. Mix in eggs one at a time with a little of the flour
  4. Mix in choc chips and one tablespoon of the juice or syrup from the mandarin tin
  5. Fold in the rest of the flour (sift flour into the bowl a little at a time)
  6. Place the mixture in the cupcakes, and then place a mandarin piece on top of each one, just pushing it into the top of the mixture slightly (only half of a mandarin piece is needed when you are making the tiny size cupcakes)
  7. Bake in a hot oven, around 12 mins at 180 degrees
