This M&S cupcake recipe has to be one of my favourite recipes of all time- and I’ve made them many, many times.

If you’re a chocolate lover, you’re sure to enjoy these indulgent, yet not heavy, treats. You’ll also be surprised, being gluten free, how moist the sponge is and quite simply how heavenly they taste. They’re also incredibly simple to make and are great for bakes sales, an accompaniment with a cup of tea and even as a gift.

    Hello! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers?
    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on.
    Any recommendations?
