Eton Mess Cupcakes-
Recently a neighbour brought round some homegrown raspberries and strawberries, of course all handpicked strawberries aren't perfect and some needed surgery and a good wash. Anyway, I decided to make Eton mess cupcakes.
Cupcakes- makes 12
4oz caster sugar
4oz self raising flour
-combine margarine and sugar until creamy
-add each egg individually and mix with a pinch of flour to prevent curdling
-add remaining flour and mix
-spoon into cupcake cases
-bake in a pre-heated oven for 15-20 minutes at 180c
Then I made a regular vanilla buttercream
8oz icing sugar
splash of milk
-combine and add milk to bind
-pipe or spread onto cupcakes
I then added broken meringue pieces, strawberry pieces and raspberries.
Of course you could serve them like this but I decided they weren't messy enough!
And there we have it, yummy! Let me know if you give them a go.
