2oz SR flour
1 tsp baking powder
4oz castor sugar
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons orange juice
grated zest of 1/2 orange
8 oz icing sugar
3 1/2 oz butter at room temperature
zest of 1/2 orange
1-2 tablespoons orange juice
Pre heat the oven to 160C/325F/ gas mark3.
Mix all cake ingredients together using an electric hand mixer until light and fluffy. Divide equally between 12 muffin cases. Bake for 20 - 25 mins or until firm on top. Set aside and leave to cool.
Beat softened butter and add icing sugar a little at a time until all combined. Add the zest and juice and beat well. Swirl onto cold cupcakes and finish with a slice of chocolate orange.
Now, chocolate oranges have 20 segments, so do you make double the quantity and leave 4 without chocolate on top, or do you make 12 and eat the 8 spare segments? I made 24 and had 16 spare segments. There's now 3 left!
