vanilla sky

We had some white choc left over from making Mum's birthday cake, so decided it was cupcake time.  I'm not a fan of white chocolate, but somehow vanilla and berries turn it into a completely different kettle of proverbial fish.  Yum! 

65 g butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
2 eggs
3/4 cup self-raising flour
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup milk
c. 1/2 cup each chocolate + berries


50 g butter, softened
2 cups icing sugar
2 tsp vanilla essence
2 tbsp milk
  1. Heat oven to 160 degrees fanbake (or a little higher if your oven doesn't have fanbake).  Line 12 muffin tin with paper cases.
  2. Beat butter, sugar and vanilla until pale and creamy.  Beat in eggs, one at a time. 
  3. Add flours and milk and beat to combine.  Stir through chocolate and berries - I used macadamia white chocolate. 
  4. Spoon mixture into cases and bake for 20 - 25 minutes. 
  5. Cool on a wire rack. 
  6. Whip icing ingredients together and ice cooled cupcakes.  Decorate as desired.
