We recently celebrated St.Georges day here in England and what better way to do so than with cupcakes?
This recipe is an oldie but a goldie and a very simple one too!
As with most recipes, I tend to deviate from the original one posted. I found this cupcake recipe on the internet, and had to tweak it to my liking.
What You’ll Need:
- 100g margarine
- 100g caster sugar
- 2 eggs
- 100g self-raising flour
- 2 tbsp milk
Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4 and line a 12-hole muffin tin with paper cases.
Mix 100g margarine and 100g caster sugar together in a bowl until smooth, add the 2 eggs one by one, stirring all the while. You then want to add 100g self raising flour, then mix in with the 2 tbsp of milk, until it’s all droopy looking.
Pre-heat the oven to 180C/Fan assisted.
Put your favourite cupcake cases into a muffin tray and start pouring the mixture in to each case evenly. (I find this the hardest part!)
Bake for 15 minutes (I like my cupcakes a deep golden brown, but you can bake for 10 minutes if you prefer!). Check the cupcakes are done by poking them with a baking skewer.
To make the icing for the flag, you can either use pre-made icing like I did, or you can make your own.
I hope you enjoy making your own cupcakes as much as I enjoyed eating mine! 🙂
