Almond Butter Cupcakes (sort of!)

January 14, 2011

This is not really a cupcake, I really don’t remember the proper name for these tiny cake. But it was baked in cupcake tin, so let’s just call it cupcakes! I saw Jamie Oliver made these on his 30 mins meal TV programme the other day. I remembered he said 100g for all dry ingredients plus one egg, but one egg is not each to combine the dry ingredients together, so I added an extra egg.  IT IS dead simple to make and delicious with a cup of tea!

Ingredients: (make around 10)

  1. 100g Self-raising flour (sifted)
  2. 100g Almond powder (sifted)
  3. 100g Caster sugar
  4. 100g Butter (at room temperature)
  5. 2 Eggs
  6. Few drops of almond extract (optional)
  7. Any Jam (In this recipe, I use the blackberry jam I made during the summer)

Pre-heat the oven to 180’C.

Combine all ingredients (other than the jam) in a big bowl until a smooth paste. Line the cupcake tin with cupcake paper. Spoon about a tablespoonful of the cake mixture to the tin, and then a teaspoonful of jam, and finally top the jam with another tablespoonful of the cake mixture.

Bake in the oven for approximately 20 mintues or until cooked and golden colour.

Nice with a cup of hot tea or cool ice cream!
