Today I made cupcakes (for a change). This time they’re just a basic vanilla sponge with fresh cream icing.
- 8oz self raising flour
- 8oz margarine (I use Olivio)
- 8oz caster sugar
- 4 medium eggs
- Tub of double cream
- A sprinkle of icing sugar
For the cupcakes, cream the margarine and sugar. Add the eggs and beat, then add the flour and whisk. Pop in a splash of vanilla extract.
For the icing, just whisk up some double cream until stiff then add the icing sugar until it stands up in strong peaks.
