Strawberry and Lemon Munchkins

Strawberry and Lemon Munchkins

These little individual cluster cakes are made with melted white chocolate and Jordans Cereal, then they are topped with a yummy mixture of lemony mascarpone cheese and fresh strawberries. A perfect treat for Mum this Mother’s Day, and they are so simple to make, your little munchkins can help too!


  • 3 cups Jordans Cereal, clusters all broken
  • 200 g (7 oz) white chocolate, broken into pieces
  • 250 g tub of mascarpone cheese
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 small lemon zest finely grated
  • 1 ½ cups strawberries, halved






  • Melt the chocolate in a large heatproof bowl, positioned over a saucepan of simmering water.
  • Remove from the heat and stir in the Jordans Cereal, breaking up any large clusters with a spoon or fingers (kids will like this bit). Make sure all the cereal is coated with chocolate.
  • Spoon the mixture into muffin tins to make 12 muffins, levelling the tops with the back of a spoon.
  • Chill the cakes in the fridge for about 25-30 mins, until set.
  • Meanwhile, mix together the mascarpone cheese, lemon juice and lemon zest. Fit a piping bag with a star-shaped nozzle and spoon in the mixture. Keep chilled.
  • Use a knife to ease the set chocolate cakes from the muffin tins. Pipe a star of lemon mixture on top of each one, and finish off with a half a strawberry.
Cook's Tips: Line the muffin tins with muffin cases if you like, especially if you need to transport the munchkins to a party or picnic. You don't have to pipe the lemony mixture - just use a teaspoon to place a nice sized dollop on each munchkin.
