CHRISTMAS CUPCAKES RECIPES
110 gm (1 cup) self raising flour
110 gm (1/2 cup )butter
110 gm (1/2 cup )sugar
2 medium eggs
2 tablespoons of milk or sherry
55gm(1/4 cup) sweet mincemeat

Pre heat oven 190C

beat the sugar and butter/margarine together until the mixture is turn pale and fluffy.
Break one egg and add it to the mixture, beat it in until it has blended with the mixture. Repeat with the second egg. Add the milk or sherry and blend.
Use a sieve to add the flour to the mixture as this will add extra air to the mixture. Gently fold in the flour or mix in slowly with an electric mixer. The mixture should be a nice type of dropping consistency.
Using a spoon divide the mixture into the paper cases and just half fill the cases, filling about 12 paper cases. Using a teaspoon place a teaspoon of mince meat in the centre of each cupcake. Then with the remaining mixture-batter cover the mincemeat so it is trapped in the centre.
Place the tray of cupcakes on a shelf in the centre. They will take 12 to 18 minutes. When the cakes are firm and springy to the touch and they look well risen and golden they will be cooked.
Remove from the oven and place on the wire try to cool. Cover with a dusting of icing sugar. They are good eaten warm.

They look festive if baked in christmas or silver or gold cupcake papers

3/4 cup caster sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs
1/2 cup each ofsour cream andmilk
1/2 tsp rum, whisky or brandy essence
1/2 cup Christmas (fruit) mincemeat

Measure the first three ingredients into a large bowl.
In another bowl mix together with a whisk, until smooth, the eggs, sour cream, milk and essence of your choice.
Without overmixing add the liquids to the dry ingredients.
Coat 12 medium sized muffin pans with non-stick spray and half fill the 12 pans with the mixture. Using a dampened teaspoon, make a small indentation on the top of each, and into it put 1-2 teaspoons of the mincemeat.
Cover each with a spoonful of the remaining mixture trying to cover the "enclosed" mincemeat.

Hi furrball. Remember that muffins freeze well so you really don't need to eat them all at once if you not want to. Good for work and schoollunches to be able to just take a couple out of the freezer beg.. V

Putting it together:
Stir all the dry ingredients together.
Combine the liquid ingredients and the fruit mincemeat and add all at once.
Stir only until the ingredients are mixed.
