The Boy and I have been making cakes again. He loves it so much and is getting so good at mixing the ingredients together, he's really got the hang on holding onto the bowl while whisking and stirring. I used to love cooking with my mum when I was little, and I want him to enjoy cooking so that I've raised a self-sufficient son!
So today's really simple (but very scrummy recipe) is:
Honey and Raisin Cupcakes
- 4oz self-raising flour
- 4oz butter
- 4oz caster sugar
- 2 eggs
- couple of handfuls of raisins
- squeeze of Beech Forest HoneyDew
Cream the butter and sugar together until smooth.
Whisk in the eggs, adding a little flour if it starts to curdle.
Add the flour and mix.
Fold in the raisins.
Put a spoonful of cake mix into each case (enough to cover the base) and then drizzle some honey on top. Put another small spoonful of cake mix on top.
Bake for 20 minutes at 170°C.
Remove from oven and while still hot drizzle honey over the top. It will soak into the top of the cake, leaving a crispy residue.
Enjoy while still warm!
We were sent a squeezy bottle of New Zealand Honey Co.'s Beech Forest Honeydew to review. It made scrummy cakes and our tastebuds opinion is unbiased and honest.
I've added this to Reluctant Housedad's 'Recipe Shed' linky (where the theme is Bakes and Cakes) and to The Crazy Kitchen's 'Cooking With Your Toddler' linky.
