Chocolate Viennese whirls


I found this recipe in one of my Christmas cookbooks and thought they looked super cute. And since it’s chocolate I knew they would go down well at the office. Needless to say I was right.


Chocolate Viennese whirls, makes 12

200 g softened butter

100 g caster sugar

200 g plain flour

1/2 tsp baking powder

25 g cocao

30-50 ml milk

100 g dark chocolate

Beat butter and sugar pale and fluffy. Mix in flour, baking powder and cocoa. Add the milk bit my bit until the batter is loose enough to be piped.

Fill a piping bag fitted with a large star nozzle and pipe the batter into cupcake cases in a circle, leaving a whole in the middle. 

Press a whole in the middle of each cake (or make the one there is a little bigger). Break the chocolate into pieces and melt over a bain marie. Pour a spoonful of chocolate into each whole. Leave to cool/set.
