Preparation Time 20 minutes
Cooking Time 20 minutes
1 1/2 cups (225g) self-raising flour, sifted
1 cup (150g) plain flour, sifted
1 cup (220g) caster sugar
150g unsalted butter, softened
2/3 cup (165ml) milk
Finely grated zest of 1 lemon
1 tsp vanilla extract
100s and 1000s, to coat
60g strawberry or raspberry jam, plus extra to serve
2/3 cup (165ml) thickened cream, whipped
Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a 12-hole cupcake pan with paper cases. Place the flours, sugar, butter, milk, eggs, zest and vanilla in a large bowl.
Using electric beaters, beat on low speed for 30 seconds or until combined.
Increase speed to high, then beat for 2 minutes or until the mixture is thick and the butter has been incorporated.
Spoon the mixture into the paper cases.
Bake for 20-25 minutes until risen and golden. Leave to cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then turn out onto a rack to cool completely.
Place the 100s and 1000s on a plate.
Warm the jam in the microwave until just melted. Cut a shallow round from the top of each cake, then halve the rounds.
Brush each piece with jam, then coat in the 100s and 1000s. Place a dollop of whipped cream on each cake and sit 2 coated pieces in the cream to form wings. Finish with a little extra jam on top.
delicious. - September 2005, Page 94
