Final evening/this morning didn’t go fairly as anticipated.. Simply earlier than going to mattress, I pulled a muscle in my again 😣 Sizzling water bottle, Nurofen and tossing/turning to no avail, so gave up at 1.15am on sleep 😭
Watched three extra episodes of Sherlock, ate three of those lemon butterfly muffins (I do know, don’t choose me!), and began to really feel human once more. Afternoon nap beckons me thinks! 😴 To make 12:
230 gms self-raising flour, sifted
1 tl bakpoeder
230 gms softened butter
230 gms caster sugar
four whisked eggs
1 lemon, finely grated
6 tbls semi-skimmed milk
1 tl vanille-extract
12 paper circumstances
🧁 For the buttercream filling:
110 gms softened butter
200 gms icing sugar
2 tsp lemon juice.
Put the flour, baking powder, butter, eggs, sugar, lemon rind, vanilla extract and milk into the bowl and blend totally till easy. I simply use a spoon for this slightly than a whisk.
Put three heaped dessert spoons into every case (in order that they rise above the paper case). Pop into the oven on 180 for 14-15 minutes rotating on the midway level or till they’re golden brown.
For the filling, put the butter into the bowl, sifted icing sugar and lemon juice, and beat till easy. Style check as you go alongside to verify it’s not over candy, alter icing sugar accordingly.
As soon as the muffins have cooled down, utilizing a really sharp knife, lower the highest off every cake. Add 1 beneficiant tsp of buttercream and unfold throughout the cake. Minimize every prime that you simply eliminated in half and firmly press them into the cake so that they seem like butterfly wings. Frivolously mud with icing sugar and revel in! 😋
