For the cupcakes:

100g plain flour

1 ½ tsp baking powder

40g butter at room temperature

¼ tsp vanilla extract – on sale from 10th April

For the topping:

Preheat oven to 180°C/355°F/Gas Mark 4.

Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

Add the eggs one at a time, beating continuously.

Sift in the flour baking powder and mix gently.

Finally, add the vanilla extract and mix until combined fully.

Spoon the mixture into a prepared cupcake tin. Bake for 20 minutes until a skewer comes out clean.

Once cooked, remove the cupcakes from the oven to cool on a wire rack – for about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile make the buttercream.
