Bake Off Time

Since last weeks brilliant first episode I have felt inspired to get baking... Love the Great British Bake Off.. So I dug out my Mary Berry 100 Cakes & Bakes book and decided that I'd make some yummy Cupcakes...

Here's the recipe and how they turned out.....

Ingredients you will need-

100g/4oz butter
100g/4oz caster sugar
2 large eggs
100g/4oz self-raising flour
1 level tsp baking powder 

Firstly preheat your oven 200'c/fan or 180'c/gas 6. Then lay out the cupcake cases. (Your supposed to use a 12 hole baking tin but I couldn't find mine.) Next mix all the ingredients together until blended and smooth looking, then fill each cupcake case. After pop in the oven for around 12 mins.Once baked put on a rack to cool. 

The recipe in my book asked for icing sugar to decorate but I had run out so decided a chocolate topping would be yummy. I grabbed a saucepan filled it with water then got a glass bowl and added a few pieces of milk chocolate to melt. This didn't take long! Then I drizzled it on top of all the cupcakes! 

Also for an added bonus I also put haribo sweets on top. I think they looked great and they tasted delicious!! 

Have you been baking since the Great British Bake Off came back on our screens?!? 

Don't forget to watch the show tonight 8pm BBC1

Thanks Guys
Love Hayley
