If you prefer, leave them plain and decorate with buttercream made from; 125g icing sugar, 1 tbsp. milk, 50g butter and a little food colouring of your choice!

How to make:

  1. Grease a muffin/cupcake tray or prepare paper cases.
  2. Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy and soft in texture.
  3. Break the eggs into the mixture one at a time and add a little flour if it begins to curdle.
  4. Add the remaining sieved flour and fold in a figure of eight to form a soft dropping consistency. Try not to over mix.
  5. Add your cake flavouring – we added ginger and chocolate chips to ours!!
  6. Share the mixture out between the cases (only half fill the cases).
  7. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 190C for 15-20 minutes.
