Dish of the week: Halloween cupcakes

Homepride flour has provided us with this spooky cupcake recipe right in time for Halloween

Timing: 15 mins prep, 20 mins cook.
Makes 6 cupcakes

INGREDIENTS
Batter
• 60g butter softened or margarine
• 60g caster sugar
• pinch of salt
• 1 egg, beaten
• 60g Homepride self-raising flour

Icing
• 50g butter softened
• 100g icing sugar
• ½ tsp vanilla extract
• few drops orange food colouring
• Halloween decorations

METHOD
For the cake
1. Preheat the oven to fan 160C, 180C, gas mark 6. Line a cup (shallow not muffin tin) cake tin with 6 cake papers.

2. Use an electric whisk to beat together the butter or margarine, sugar and salt until pale and soft, it may take several minutes to become paler.

3. With the whisk running gradually add the beaten egg, whisking between additions until you have a smooth, stiff mixture. If the mixture splits (appears curdled) add a tsp of Homepride flour to bring it back together.

4. Add the flour and fold in carefully.

5. Spoon into the paper cases and bake for 15-20 minutes until golden and risen- they should spring back when touched gently.

6. Remove to a wire rack to cool.

For the icing
1. Beat all the ingredients together until smooth

2. Spread the butter icing over the cakes and top with sprinkles and decorations
