Strawberry Teacup Cupcakes

Method:

 

Step 1:

Grease 6 heavy, round teacups with butter. Now put 1 table spoon of strawberry jam
in each of the tea cups.

 

Step 2:

Put the butter and sugar in a bowl and beat until light and fluffy. Now add the
eggs and beat well after each addition then add the vanilla essence. Sift in the
flour and fold the flour into the mixture. Now spoon the mixture into the teacups. 

 

Step 3:

Place the teacups into a large roasting tin and fill the tin with hot water so that
it is just under half way of the cup. Then place them into a preheated oven of 180
°C/350°F/Gas mark 4 and bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until well risen and
golden brown. 

 

Step 4:

Once baked leave them to cool for 2 to 3 minutes then place them on saucers
and dust with icing sugar. Serve whilst still warm.
