  • 100g Butter (at room temperature)
  • 100g Caster Sugar

  • 1tsp Baking Powder
  • 1tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 125g Butter

Follow these steps

  • Pre-heat the oven to 180 Deg C / Gas 6
  • Line a cup cake baking tin with paper cases
  • Cream the butter, sugar and vanilla extract together until light and fluffy. Sift the flour and baking powder together then add a little of the flour to the creamed mixture along with the eggs and beat well. Fold in the remaining flour. Half fill the paper cases with the cake mix. Bake for around 15-18 minutes until golden brown and the mixture springs back when you touch it. Place cakes onto cooling tray.
