Valentines Cupcakes

We've gone right back to basics for this weeks bake. Sometimes the simple recipes can be the nicest - not everything has to be fancy and exotic!

100g self raising flour 
100g caster sugar 
100g butter 
2 eggs 
15ml whole milk
1/2tsp baking powder 
Red food colour (use as much or little as you want depending how red you want the buns!)
Icing sugar and sprinkle for topping 
********preheat oven to 180degs

Add the butter, sugar, milk, and eggs into a bowl and mix together really well until there are no lumps of butter.

Add the flour and baking powder and mix again. I also added the food colouring at this point - but I did this myself as I use Wilton food gel which is super strong!!

Pop the bun cases into the baking tray and then spoon in the mixture. This is the best time to get a taste of the yummy cakes! 

The buns take around 15-20 long minutes to cook. You don't have to sit and watch them the whole time, but the Zebra likes to! 

Stir a little water and food colour in with the icing sugar and then pour over the buns. Sprinkle on some hundred and thousands. Then grab a cake and shove it in your mouth before mummy can stop you! Serves her right for decorating cakes right before lunch time... 

Happy Valentine's Day Zebras x
