Easter Themed Cupcakes

When it feels like chocolate is suddenly taking over your house around Easter, a great way of using a lot of it up is to make some equally tasty cupcakes. Taking only twenty minutes to bake, and a similar amount of time to decorate, this is a perfect and easy recipe to make for friends, family or yourself (no judgement) in a short amount of time over the Easter holidays.

Ingredients

  • 4oz Margarine or Butter
  • 4oz Caster Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 4oz Self-Raising Flour
  • 1 tsp Milk
  • 1 Packet of Chocolate Chips
  • Icing Sugar or Icing Product
  • Creme Eggs
  • Mini Eggs
  • Decorations

Recipe (18 Cupcakes)

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and place cupcake cases on a baking tray
  2. Cream the butter and sugar together in a bowl until smooth
  3. Beat in the eggs and the flour alternately and add in the vanilla extract
  4. Add the milk and stir the mixture until it’s completely smooth
  5. Pour the mixture into the cases until they are around half way full
  6. Cook for 20 minutes and then check. If more time is needed then check every five minutes until done
  7. Either make the icing with icing sugar or use a pre-made product. I used Dr Oetker Easy Swirl Cupcake Icing and Dr Oetker Vanilla Frosting
  8. Halve the Cream Eggs and place the Mini Eggs on top of the icing
  9. DECORATE!
