Strawberry & Lime cupcakes – Rekorderlig style!

I found this recipe online and was so intrigued I thought I’d give it a go! Wasn’t sure how the substitution of milk for cider would impact the recipe but, hey, it worked! Topped with a tangy lime icing, these cupcakes are ‘mmmmm delicious!!’

Ingredients:

Cupcakes:

  • 4 eggs
  • 200g butter (softened)
  • 3 cups self-raising flour, sifted
  • 2 1/2 cups caster sugar
  • 250 ml Rekorderlig strawberry & lime cider (1/2 bottle)

Icing:

  • 2 cups icing sugar
  • Juice of one lime
  • Dash of water
  • Pink and green food colouring

Method:

  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C and line two 12 hole muffin trays with cupcake liners.
  2. Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.
  3. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  4. Using a wooden spoon, add the sifted flour and cider alternately, until all has been used.
  5. Divide the mixture between the cupcake liners and bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the cupcakes comes out clean.
  6. Remove cupcakes from oven and transfer to wire rack. Cool completely before icing.
  7. To make the icing, blend all the ingredients together then divide the mixture into two bowls. Add a dash of green food colouring to one bowl and a dash of pink to the other.
