Egg cupcakes

More specifically, Cadbury Creme Egg cupcakes!
I was inspired by my favourite cupcake shop Fancie - who've been selling out of the little gems for a few days now. However, Fancie charges around £3 per cupcake and I do not have that sort of money for a cupcake, no matter how utterly beautiful they taste!

The method I used was about as simple as it gets, and made me around 10 cupcakes.

For the cake:

  • 4oz margarine
  • 4oz caster sugar
  • 3oz self-raising flour
  • 1oz cocoa powder
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 10 frozen mini Cadbury creme eggs
For the icing:
  • 3oz butter
  • 6oz icing sugar
  • 1tbsp water
  • Preheat oven to Gas Mark 5, line cupcake tray with 10 cases.
  • Mix margarine and sugar together.
  • In a separate bowl, sieve flour and cocoa together.
  • Add one egg and a spoon of flour and cocoa to the margarine and sugar, mix.
  • Add next egg and a spoon of flour and cocoa to the margarine and sugar, mix.
  • Fold in the rest of the flour and cocoa.
  • Half fill the case with mixture.
  • Put one mini Cadbury creme egg into the case.
  • Top up the case with mixture.
  • Bake for 15 minutes.
  • Allow to cool.
  • To make icing, mix butter, sugar and water together until smooth, then pipe on to the cupcakes.

Probably not as good as Fancie, but not half bad!
