They are. Incredible texture, and so easy. Can't agree re stork above - unsalted butter all the way. But then I faff about with Swiss meringue buttercream so clearly have too much time on my hands.

Easiest recipe - and tastiest - by far!:

6oz s/r flour, caster sugar & stork (trust me - already soft and doesn't have strong taste like butter. Once you try it for both cakes and buttercream you'll never go back. Even people who "don't like buttercream" love it)
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla essence

cream stork & sugar, add eggs, then fold in flour.
Bake for 15-20 mins at gas 4

For buttercream, do it by eye/by taste but rule of thumb is double amount of icing sugar to stork, then tsp or 2 of vanilla.

Thanks both.

120g plain flour
140g caster sugar
120ml whole milk
40g soft butter
1 egg
1.5 tsp baking powder
Dash of vanilla extract
Pinch of salt

For chocolate, take away 20g of flour and replace with 20g decent cocoa powder.

These are amazing and really simple: http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/2008/apr/26/recipe.foodanddrink1. Sorry - can't make link work on the tablet. Google Dan Lepard chocolate custard muffins.
