Recipe of the Week - Malva Pudding inspired Cupcakes

As we didn't post a recipe last Friday, here's an early one this week - these are the Malva pudding inspired cupcakes we made here in the Devnaa kitchen last week to kick off the world cup :)

1 Egg
1 cup of Caster Sugar
1 cup of Plain Flour
1 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
1 cup of Milk
4 tsp Melted Butter
1 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
4 tblsp Apricot Jam
300 ml Whipping Cream
1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
80g Icing Sugar

  • Pre heat your oven to gas mark 6 and grease the cavities of a 12 hole muffin tray
  • Cream the egg and caster sugar together for at least 8 minutes until thick, pale and fluffy
  • Sift the flour and bicarbonate of soda into a bowl
  • Mix half of the milk into the egg mixture followed by half of the flour and then the remaining milk followed by the remaining flour
  • Mix in the butter, vinegar and 2 tblsp of the apricot jam
  • Divide the batter evenly between each of the muffin holes (each one should be between two thirds to three quarters full)
  • Bake for 30 minutes until a skewer inserted into the centre of the puddings comes out clean
  • Place the muffin tray on a wire rack to cool for about 10 minutes
  • Run a palette knife around the edge of each pudding, turn out onto the wire rack and allow to cool completely
  • Whip the cream until you reach soft peak consistency
  • Fold in the vanilla extract and sifted icing sugar (add a little apricot colour if desired)
  • Use your finger to poke a small hole into the top of each pudding and fill it with the remaining apricot jam
  • Swirl the whipped cream on top.
