I'm a woman of my word, so as promised here is another sweet treat recipe for those that came here looking for something other than healthy January food. These cupcakes are a basic cake recipe that you can add your own flavours to. I chose to add a touch of vanilla extract this time, but grated lemon zest works really well too, especially with the raspberry topping.
Some people can find buttercream a little too sweet, but this simple topping is creamy and fruity, with just the right amount of sweetness. It's also a lot less hassle to make than buttercream as it doesn't leave your kitchen with a layer of icing sugar dust over it!
Perfect for your Valentine.(Nobody can see that the cases have a reindeer on the bottom!)
