Lovely to have some baking time today with my boy, we really enjoyed creating these beauties. Very scrummy! This recipe makes about 15 cup cakes.
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Baking time: 20 minutes
Plus cooling time and decorating time
What we used:
8oz self raising flour
8oz caster sugar
8oz unsalted butter (I use Stork)
4 x eggs
A little vanilla essence
Glacier cherries (a large handful cut in halves)
White chocolate chips (a large handful)
What we did:
Preheat the oven to 180c
We used the all in one method of basically putting all the flour, sugar, butter, vanilla essence and eggs in a large mixing bowl and whisking together until smooth. Then we added the cherries and white chocolate chips. Then we carefully spooned the mixture into the cup cases about half way up each case. We baked the cakes in the middle of the oven for approximately 20 minutes. I checked they were done by sticking a metal skewer down the middle of one of the cakes for a few seconds and if it was clean then they were done.
When they were baked to perfection I put them on a cooling tray for about 1/2 an hour (kept my boy entertained with something else for a bit). We decorated ours with pink ready made icing and sprinkled white chocolate stars and pink sugar sprinkles on top. Nom nom.
