Our new re-usable Jane Austen Teacup Cupcake Cases have proved a huge hit, and a number of you have asked us if we had any cup cake recipes that would be perfect for use with the little cups… … and indeed we do! Ingredients: 50g caster sugar 50g butter/margarine 50g self-raising flour 1 egg A few drops of vanilla essence Preheat the oven to 190 degrees. Cream together the sugar and the butter until smooth. Beat the egg and then add it to the sugar/butter mixture a little at a time. Stir in the sifted flour and vanilla essence. Grease the teacup insides and place onto a baking tray. Divide the mixture evenly between the four teacups. Bake for between 15-20 minutes or until the cakes look golden brown. Wait until cool and then decorate! For coffee cake: Add 5ml (one teaspoon) of instant coffee, dissolved in hot water, to the cake mixture along with the flour and instead of the vanilla essence. We’d love to see how you get on! Feel free to email photographs of your creations to us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or message us on Facebook or Twitter! Save Save Save Save Save
