Cherry and White Chocolate Cupcakes...with a lime butter frosting.

4.5oz SR flour
1 tsp baking powder
2.5 oz sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 oz white chocolate chips
3 oz cherries

2.5 fl oz oil
1 egg
1 TBspn orange water or orange juice

2 0z butter
4oz icing sugar
1/2 packet of lime Kool Aid

In a bowl mix the flour,baking powder,sugar,cinnamon and white chocolate

In a jug mix the oil,egg and orange, beat till frothy

I couldn't get fresh cherries so used dried. I rehydrated them in a little hot water, then dried them and rolled in a little flour.

Add the oil mix to the dry mix, then stir in the cherries.

Divide into 8 cupcake cases.

Bake at Gas Mark 4 for 20 minutes

Beat the butter,icing sugar and koolaid, add a little milk or cream if the mix is too stiff, then pipe over the cakes. It makes a strong flavoured icing so I only used a little on each cake.


  1. Yum - they sound fab! Hope your other half is recovering... x

  2. I am making these cakes later - have you seen JoZarts singing tree blog? I have asked if we could meet there at easter & do an ATC swap - wanna join in?



  4. Oh wow! Yum, yum! I LOVE coming here for artistic refreshments!!! I'm gonna try this recipe asap. You really do make the most divine things.

  5. Yum ...I so wish I lived nearby and could pop in for a taste and a coffee ....If I make them I'll eat them ALL lol. I have a vague memory that you did some gluten free recipes ...or am I wrong ??? Vicki has just found out that she is allergic to wheat ...and love a cake or three....thought a tried and tested one would be a good place to
