Lemon cup cakes

It is almost Easter. Because of that I baked lemon cup cakes form Rachel Allen book 'Bake" and decorated them whit shell eggs.

Ingredients for 12 cup cakes:
  • 125g soft butter
  • 125g caster sugar
  • 1tsp lemon extract
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 150 g plain flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
For decorations: eggs in a crisp shell, white chocolate, ready to use cream or butter cream

Preheat the oven to 180C. Line a 12 hole muffin tin with paper cases.

Using electric mixer cream the butter  add sugar and lemon extract and beat until light and fluffy. Gradually add the beaten eggs. Then gently fold in the flour and baking powder. Spoon the batter into paper cases. bake for 20 min until well risen and golden. When baked cool on a wire rack.

To decorate I melt white chocolate and spread it over cupcakes.
