Butterfly Cakes

The method for mixing these cakes is an ‘all-in together’ method – so it’s very easy. This recipe never fails to deliver a lovely light cake perfect for filling with a butter cream to make butterfly cakes. Great for a Sunday afternoon tea with friends.

Ingredients

  • 1.5 cups self raising flour

  • .5 cup of caster sugar

  • 150g butter (allow to come to room temperature)

  • 3 eggs

  • .25 cup milk

  • 1 teas vanilla extract

  • Mock cream to decorate

Method

  • 1.

    Preheat oven to 180C.

  • 2.

    Place flour, sugar, butter, eggs, milk and vanilla extract in a bowl and mix on the electric mixer until all ingredients are well mixed. Beat until mix is light and creamy.

  • 3.

    Spoon the mixture into muffin cases in tins until three-quarters full. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 mins or until cakes are golden and spring back when touched in the centre. Allow the cakes to cool on a cake cooler.

  • 4.

    To decorate, remove a round of cake from the surface with a sharp knife. Cut this round into two to create the butterfly wings.

  • 5.

    Pipe the prepared mock cream into the top of the cake in a continuous spiral. Top the cake with the removed piece of cake (the wings) and dust with icing sugar.

  • 6.

    Makes 1 dozen muffin sized cakes or 24 patty cakes.
