Method

1.Melt 30g (1 ounce) of the butter in small saucepan. Remove from heat; stir in brown sugar, ground cinnamon and cocoa. Cool.

3.Beat remaining butter, caster sugar, eggs, sifted flours and buttermilk in medium bowl with electric mixer on low speed until ingredients are combined. Increase speed to medium; beat until mixture is changed to a paler colour. Fold in brown sugar mixture, for marbled effect. Divide mixture into paper cases.
