Like your Momma used to make !

Fairy Cakes with Raspberry Jam and Coconut (or pineapple buttercream and coconut)

These are plain and simple goodness, boil the kettle or get yourself a freezing cold glass of milk and tuck in. Made in an old school mixing bowl with a wooden spoon just to keep it authentic, these are therepeutic to make as they bring you back to your childhood :) !

Ingredients :
125g caster sugar, 125g soft butter, 2 eggs, 1tsp vanilla extract, 150g plain flour, 1/4(quarter)tsp baking powder and a dash of milk

Beat the sugar and butter until light and fluffy and beat in the eggs one by one until well incorporated. Stir the vanilla through. Sieve in the flour and baking powder and stir in until just mixed. Spoon into 12 cupcake cases and bake @190C for 10 minutes. Have a look they may need another minute!

Cool on a rack and spread with raspberry jam and roll in a bowl of dessicated coconut.... Soooo Good!

Alternatively beat the hell out of 80g icing sugar, 40g butter, and a good dash of pineapple juice until super smooth and creamy. Spread this on 6 of the cupcakes instead and continue rolling in a bowl o coconut.... Fun! :D
