Ok so its not technically Sunday but Shhhh dont tell anyone. Moving out of our house this weekend proved more work and effort than I expected and blogging went completely out of my head!
This time of year is my favourite time for cooking and baking. Stews, oven bakes and berry cakes are my favourite winter warmers. So when UGG Australia asked me to put together a recipe for a 'Feels Like Home' winter treat I jumped at the chance & knew exactly what I wanted to share.
You will need:
2 free range eggs, beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
110g self raising flour
2 tbsp milk
A large handful of blackberries (I hand picked all my blackberries from the hedgerows of the countryside where I live, you can do this too or store bought blackberries work just as well.)
Preheat your oven to 180oC and line your cupcake tins with paper cases. Then cream your butter and sugar in a bowl with a mixer until pale in colour. Beat in your eggs little at a time and add the vanilla extract.
Fold in the flour with a large metal spoon and add the milk to help make the mixture smooth in consistency.
Make sure your blackberries are well washed, then mash in a bowl to create a rough pulp mixture. Then empty into your cupcake mixture and mix together. Tip the mix into the paper cases and fill ¾ full leaving room for the cupcakes to rise in the oven without spilling over the top.
Bake for 8-10 minutes until golden brown, remove and place on a cooling rack for 10 minutes. Serve with hot apple cider and sit in front of an open fire. A perfect way to spend a November afternoon.
