    About this recipe: An Easter cupcake with a surprise egg inside.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 24 

    • 275g plain flour
    • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 150g butter or margarine, softened
    • 225g dark brown soft sugar
    • 150g caster sugar
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 300ml milk
    • 24 mini chocolate eggs, unwrapped

    Method
    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas mark 4. Grease 24 muffin cups, or use paper cases. Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
    2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar and caster sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the milk, mixing just until incorporated.
    3. Fill each muffin cup 1/3 full, and place a chocolate egg in the centre of each. Top with remaining cake mixture until cups are 2/3 full.
    4. Bake in preheated oven for 18 to 20 minutes, or until golden brown, and tops spring back when lightly tapped.
