  1. Step 1:

    Set the oven to 180°C (fan 160°C, gas mark 4). Line a cupcake tray with 12 paper cupcake cases.

  2. Step 2:

    Place the flour, and cayenne pepper in a mixing bowl.

  3. Step 3:

    In a jug beat together the oil, yoghurt, milk and egg then beat into the flour mixture with the salmon and dill until well mixed, but don’t worry if it's a little lumpy.

  4. Step 4:

    Divide the mixture between the paper cupcake cases and bake for 20-25 minutes until golden and just firm to the touch. Allow to cool completely.

  5. Step 5:

    If you would like to decorate try blending up a few slices of smoked salmon with the cream cheese and lemon zest until smooth. Place in a piping bag, snip the end and pipe a swirl on top of each cake. Decorate with a tiny piece of smoked salmon and a sprig of dill. Store in the fridge for up to 1 day.
