Chocolate Cup Cake

Pour over some cream or ice-cream and you're on your way to heaven. Or forget all that messing about and just eat them straight away fresh from the Bakery!


Trifles breadroll bakery darwen The earliest use of the name trifle was for a thick cream flavoured with sugar, ginger and rosewater, the recipe for which was published in England, 1596, in a book called "The good huswife's Jewell" by Thomas Dawson. Sixty years later eggs and alcohol were added.
