Add liquids to the dry ingredients and mix well. Add a little milk if the mixture seems too stiff, otherwise carry on.

Line a muffin tin, and 1/4 fill with mixture. Roll some of the raspberries in flour and add 3 to each cake.

Top up with mixture to about 3/4 full.

Bake Gas 4 for around 20 minutes until firm but spongy.

Once cool, top with glace icing..

5oz icing sugar

Mix well, add more icing sugar if needed to get a thick dropping consistency.

Drop a spoonful onto each cake, swirl the spoon around to get a circle of icing. Top with a raspberry.



  1. These look and sound delicious. I made cupcakes today - carrot cupcakes and chocolate fudge ones.

  2. These look lush. Rach could of made these today with her raspberries. xox

  3. OHH cake...... are they for tomorrow?

  4. Love the cupcakes. Love the recipe. Love the fact that we are from two very different "English's." What's a GAS 4?.

    In my world, I have instructions like Bake at X (say 350) degrees F for X (say 20) minutes. I can usually figure out the "language barrier," but this one has me stumped.

  5. I'll say it again. You are a real sweetheart for providing the conversions (all of them).

  6. Oh hey Darcy. Thanks for commenting on my blog. I absolutely adore yours. bookmarked it right away and added it to my bloglist. I think we have a lot in common, stamping, papercrafts, art and so much more. Love your hair btw, tried going punky red recently, but the black didn't let me :)

  7. yeah, that's what I thought. I keep coloring mine black and would need a A LOT OF BLEACH to go red again. don't think my hair could take it. Shame though. will have to try my best Bettie Page impression, though I'd love to be more Emilie Autumn (you know her?
