It was bake off batter week this week & this time last year I baked some delicious homemade madeira cupcakes.
Both Apple & cinnamon & golden colour swirl cupcakes.
Firstly Preheat fan assisted oven to 140c
Madeira cake batter Ingredients
150g stork butter softened
150g caster sugar
150g self raising flour
Cream butter & sugar together until soft & creamy
Add a touch of vanilla OR almond flavouring plus the eggs & whisk a little
Then gradually add sieved flour until thoroughly mixed
spoon equally into cupcake muffin cases or lined or lightly greased cake tins
Baking time for cupcakes 25-30 minutes OR 40 minutes for 2 x 7″ shallow sandwich tins.
This will make Approximately 12 cupcakes Or 1 large Basic 7″ Madeira sandwich cake
for the apple filled cupcakes I used
2 tbsp of cinnamon
Apple filling Method:
heated to a pulp in a pan till soft & slightly smooth, then placed a spoonful into the centre of each cupcake before baking.
Baking time: Approximately 15-18 minutes or until golden brown
Once baked leave to cool completely before decorating or icing.
& if you haven’t got time then you could always do the Apple filling at home & use a Wrights baking Madeira cake mix.
Enjoy & thank you for reading.
