Fruity Iced Muffin Slice

Baby L and I made these muffin slices at breakfast this morning. Very quick and by the time breakfast was finished we had cake to take out to our baby group. Very easy and rewarding to think, yes I maybe on maternity leave but I can make a cake before 9 am. Yes, I am a Mummy as well and make cake!! With that thought, here is my own recipe ...

This is a really easy and I mean easy cake to put together. Perfect for parties and get togethers as the mixture makes over 24 slices.

You will need -

75g unsalted butter
200g self raising flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
75g caster sugar
200ml full fat milk
1 free range egg (medium to large)
Half teaspoon vanilla essence
50g raisins
50g dried apricots
Half teaspoon nutmeg

For the ice
4 tablespoons of icing sugar
1 teaspoon of glycerine

Go Create!

Put the oven on at 190*C (conventional oven temperature) or similar for a fan over.

This cake uses just one pan, no mixer and no extra bowls. Melt the butter on the hob and add the sugar. Turn off the heat when the mixture starts to caramelise. Then add the vanilla essence and dried fruit. Beat the egg together with the milk and slowly mix into the butter mixture. Sift the flower and baking powder into the pan and fold in. Do not stir as you need to get the air into the mixture.

Grease two 20cm sponge tins and pour in the mixture. When your oven is hot enough, bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown and the cake passes the knife test.

Let the cakes cool down for a few minutes and then turn out onto a wire rack.

Make an icing glaze with icing sugar and glycerine and drizzle on top.
