This is my Mums own recipe and the fresh strawberries inside the cake mix give a lovely surprise. These are pretty easy cupcakes to make, but to be honest, my Mum is the baker in my family, so I have gotten a little lazy and usually eat hers rather than make them myself. They are delicious with a cup of tea in the garden and also ideal to bring to a bar-b-q or party.
12oz self-raising flour
8oz flora buttery
8oz caster sugar
4 drops of vanilla extract
4 free range eggs
100 g white chocolate chips
1 punnet of fresh strawberries diced for the mix. More for decoration.
Whipped cream for the topping.
Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees fan.
Put flora, sugar, flour, eggs and vanilla extract into a bowl. Mix at high for about 5 minutes.
Fold in chocolate chips and diced strawberries.
Divide the mixture into 24 baking cases and bake for 25-30 minutes.
Cool on a tray and decorate with fresh whipped cream and sliced strawberries.
