Christmas Pudding Cupcakes Take Two!

Today, I tried out a different christmas pudding cupcake recipe. Yesterday’s looked like mini christmas puddings, but had more of a chocolate cake texture. Today’s include brandy-soaked fruit, brandy butter icing, and spiced cake mixture. I actually nearly poured in red hot chilli powder! Thank goodness I checked the label as I was tipping it. That would have been a disaster!

You will need:

Base:                                                                 Icing

  • half a pack of dried fruit, including               – 100g soft butter
    sultanas and raisins and currants                  – 200g icing sugar
    and orange peel.                                          – 2 tbsp mead/brandy
  • 1/2 cup of brandy. I actually found some
    Christmas Mead in the drinks cupboard
  • 60 g plain flour
  • 60 g self raising flour. Or try all self raising
  • 1 tsp mixed spice. Check the label!
  • 125 g room temperature butter
  • 125g dark brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • grated zest of 1 orange
