Recipe courtesy of Bonne Maman
  • 50g unsalted butter, softened
  • 150g golden caster sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 100ml buttermilk
  • 50ml vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp vinegar
  • 145g plain flour
  • 1tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 4 tsps cocoa
  • 2 tsps red food colouring paste or gel

Line a cupcake tin with 12 large cases. Heat oven to 180°C/Fan 160°C/Gas 4. Put the butter and sugar in a bowl and beat with an electric whisk until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in the egg, buttermilk, oil and vinegar.

Add the flour, bicarb and cocoa with a large pinch of salt and beat everything together until smooth. Lastly beat in the red food colouring, adding extra if needed to produce a deep red mixture.

Spoon the mixture into the cupcake cases and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.

Meanwhile make the frosting. With the electric whisk, gradually beat the icing sugar into the butter. Add all the soft cheese and beat together for a good 5 minutes until light and fluffy.

Pipe or spread the cold cupcakes with a ring of the frosting. Spoon the conserve into the centre and decorate with sugar crowns.
