These patriotic little cupcakes are a great way to celebrate St George's Day, put the date in your diary to make a batch for April 23rd.

Method

  1. Heat the oven to 190°C (fan 170°C, gas mark 5). Line a cupcake tin with 18 - 20 paper cases.

  2. Place the butter and sugar in a mixing bowl and beat with a wooden spoon or electric mixer until light and fluffy.

  3. Gradually beat in the eggs a little at a time until smooth, adding a little flour if the mixture curdles.

  4. Stir in the flour, baking powder and vanilla extract until smooth.

  5. Place a heaped dessert-spoon of the mixture in to each cupcake case and bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown and just firm to the touch. Cool on a wire tray.

  6. Roll out the white icing and cut out circles to fit the size of your cupcake. Brush the cupcakes with jam and stick the icing onto the cake. Roll out red icing and cut out the St George's crosses using a sharp knife. Stick on with a little jam.
