LEFTOVER CHRISTMAS PUDDING CUPCAKES

cupcake-ingredients

Christmas Pudding is an odd thing, personally I don’t like it. Its too heavy and rich. I do however like the flavours that are present in the pudding so when we were watching some cookery show on saturday and they made these cupcakes I thought it would be a great way to use some left overs.

1 Egg

75ml Milk

30g Salted Butter

2 Tbsp Sheery

125g Left over Christmas Pudding

125g Plain Flour

1 Tbsp Baking Powder

1/2 Tsp Mixed Spice

75g Caster Sugar

 

1. Preheat oven to 350f/170c and line a muffin pan with 6 paper liners

2. Whisk the egg in a bowl. Add the melted butter, milk, sherry, and pudding

3. Sieve the dry ingredients into another bowl and then add the sugar and mix together. Make a well and add the wet ingredients

4. With a rubber spatula gently fold together until a soft batter forms

5. Fill 6 cupcake liners with the batter and the bake 20-25 minutes

For the frosting you could go with anything you fancied but I followed the original suggestion and made a simple sherry buttercream, very christmasy 

 

125g Icing Sugar

50g Salted Butter

1-2 Tbsp Sweet Sherry

 

1. Mix together the sugar and the butter and then add the sherry so you get the right consistency
