Raspberry Valentine’s Day Cupcakes:
Follow this recipe to make beautifully flavoured raspberry cupcakes for your loved one on this special day – or any other day if you’re feeling nice!
This recipe will make approximately 24 standard sized cakes. Half the amount of ingredients for 12 cakes.
You will need:
❤ 345g of self raising flour
❤ 225g of butter
❤ 345g of caster sugar
❤ 1 tsp of baking powder
❤ 10 tbsp of milk
❤ 4 eggs
❤ 24 raspberries
❤ 500g of icing sugar
❤ 2 eggs
❤ 1tsp of vanilla essence
❤ 1tsp of water
❤ Sparkles and icing of your choice to decorate
Here is a simple step by step guide for you to follow!
Step 1: Preheat your oven to gas mark 4/180C and line a cupcake tray with cake cases. Place the butter and sugar in a bowl and whisk until the mixture is creamy.
Step 2: Sift the flour and baking powder into the bowl and fold them into the mixture.
Step 3: Add in four of the eggs, one by one and add the milk in gradually. Make sure you beat the mixture each time you add an ingredient.
Step 4: Scoop a tablespoon of the mixture into each cake case. Make sure they all have a similar amount of mixture in them and place a raspberry in the centre of each one. When you have done this, put the cakes in the oven for 15-20 minutes.
Step 5: once the cakes are cooked, leave them to cool for 10-15 minutes. Once they are cool down, carefully cut the top of each cake off so the surface is flat. (I recommend eating the tops of the cakes! Yummy!)
Step 6: Whisk the icing sugar and the eggs whites of the eggs together until the mixture is thick, and add a drop of vanilla essence. Spread a thick layer of the icing on each cake and decorate them in your own personal way!
I hope you enjoy the cakes as much as me and my wonderful friends did :-)
Goodbye for now ❤
