Ingredients

Instructions

Lemon and Poppy Seed with Lemon Drizzle Buttercream Cupcakes

1. Pre-heat the oven to 170 C, 325 F, Gas mark 3.

2. Line a cupcake tray with cupcake cases.

3.  Cream together the margarine and caster sugar with 1 oz of the Sugar and Crumbs Lemon Drizzle Natural Flavoured Icing Sugar (or any flavour of your choice) in a mixing bowl until creamy.

4. Add the eggs, mix, then add the flour and Ppoppy seeds until all combined.

5.  Divide the mixture between the cupcake cases. I use an ice cream scoop to divide evenly.

6. Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes or until golden and a skewer comes out clean. Leave to cool in the tin for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire cooling rack.

7.  To make the buttercream, mix the Sugar and Crumbs Lemon Drizzle Natural Flavoured Icing Sugar, butter and poppy seeds together in a clean bowl with a teaspoon of milk. Use a wet tea towel to cover the bowl to avoid a cloud of icing sugar. I've coloured my icing yellow (optional) add this now if using and give one final mix.

8.) Add the buttercream to a piping bag with the nozzle already inserted and pipe as desired. Cover with sprinkles to decorate.
