Hot marmalade cupcakes

Today I would like to present intense orange cupcakes served with hot orange and ginger marmalade and whipped cream. They were nice, cake was thick and moist with lovely orange scent. This recipe is only for 4 cupcakes. Perfect for afternoon tea.The recipe comes from 'Easy cupcakes' cookbook.

Ingredients for 4 cupcakes:
  • 1 medium size orange
  • 85g butter
  • 85g caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 115g self-rising flour
  • 2 tbsp orange marmalade (I used orange and ginger marmalade)
Put the orange into a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to the boil then reduce the heat and cover and simmer for 1 hour until soft. Remove the orange from the water and leave to cool for 30 minutes. 

Preheat the oven to 180C. Grease slightly the ramekins. 

Cut the orange into a chunks remove the stones. Place the chunks of orange into a blender and blend them until minced. 

Add the butter, sugar, egg and flour and blend until smooth. 

Spoon the batter into prepared earlier ramekins. 

Bake for 25 - 30 minutes. While the cupcakes are still in the oven heat up the marmalade. 
Remove cupcakes from the oven leave them for 2-3 minutes then brush with warmed marmalade.

Serve with whipped cream. You can use the ready one or pour the whipping cream into a bowl and whisk it until forms soft picks. Add 1 tablespoon of icing sugar. 
Enjoy !
