Not one for lunch boxes Mums but definitely one for all the grown ups homeschooling! They look lovely on an Easter table too.
These are light, elegant and fluffy, one is never enough. The perfect mid morning treat. I have a feeling these are going to be popular!
125ml self raising flour
125ml caster sugar
2 tablespoons Gin
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon baking powder
200g icing sugar
2 teaspoons lemon juice
Zest of a lemon grated to decorate
Pre heat oven to 180C / 160C fan
Line a 12 hole muffin tin with cake cases
Place all your ingredients except the ones for the icing into a large mixing bowl and whizz to a creamy consistency with a blender or wooden spoon if you’re old school. I like a hand blender so I’m in between!
Dollop your mixture evenly between your 12 cake cases and transfer to the middle shelf of your oven for approximately 18 minutes. When they have risen and are lightly golden and springy to touch lift them out and allow to cool. Transfer to a wire rack until fully cool.
Meanwhile, mix up your icing in a separate bowl. Smooth your icing over your cakes and sprinkle over the grated zest of a lemon to decorate.
