Last weekend I fancied baking some cupcakes but I wanted to try something completely different, something that you don't tend to come across too often...cue raspberry cupcakes. These are so light, delicious tasting and, I think, would be perfect for afternoon tea. 

makes 12
50g seedless raspberry jam
50g fresh raspberries
125g unsalted butter, softened
150g self-raising flour
2 medium eggs
100g caster sugar
1 tbsp. milk

For the topping
150g fresh raspberries - for decoration
125g unsalted butter
300g icing sugar
  1. Preheat your oven to 190C. Line your muffin tin with 12 paper cupcake cases.
  2. Mix the raspberry jam with the raspberries, lightly crushing the fresh raspberries. Put to one side until later.
  3. Beat the butter and caster sugar in bowl, using a whisk, until pale and creamy. Gradually whisk in the eggs and milk until just combined.
  4. Fold in the flour using a metal spoon until just combined and then carefully fold in the raspberry jam mixture until just marbled. Be careful not to over-mix. Spoon the mixture equally into your cupcake cases; about 2/3 full.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes or until risen and golden in colour. Allow to cool in the tin for 5 minutes then transfer to a wire rack and leave to cool completely.
  1. Reserve 12 raspberries for the topping.
  2. Mash the remaining raspberries in a bowl using a fork. Pass the mixture through a sieve into a bowl to remove the raspberry seeds. Put to one side until later.
  3. Put the butter into a bowl and whisk until fluffy. Gradually whisk in the icing sugar, a little bit at a time until all icing sugar has been added and the mixture is light and fluffy.
  4. Mix the raspberry mixture into the buttercream until combined.
  5. Fill a piping bag with the buttercream and pipe a swirl on top of each cake. Finally decorate with a raspberry.
After making and eating these I cannot wait to make more flavoured cupcakes, they really are a show stopper! If you do make these please share a picture with me on Twitter or Instagram
