Ingredients

This recipe makes 10 cupcakes.

 

For the batter:

1 egg (free range please)

75g plain flour (or use self raising and omit the baking powder)

50g sugar 

62g butter or baking margerine 

1/2 tsp baking powder 

3 tsp Pixley Berries Blackcurrant Cordial

Few drops of pink food colouring (optional)

For the frosting:

75g butter

250g icing sugar 

1-2 tbsp Pixley Berries Blackcurrant Cordial

 

 

 

Method:

 

 

 

  • Add the egg, butter, flour, sugar and baking powder to a bowl and beat with a hand whisk until blended.

 

  • Add the cordial and briefly mix again. The batter should be loose enough to dollop off a spoon. Line a bun tin with fairy cake cases.

 

  • Fill each case 2/3 with batter and bake at 190C/gas 5 for approximately 12 minutes.

 

  • For the frosting: Beat the butter really well, then pour in the icing sugar and cordial. Mix. Once the cakes have cooled, decorate with the frosting, sprinkles and love hearts.
