Lime-Butter Cupcakes




Ingredients:  (Makes 13 in muffin cases) 

200g butter - softened
180g caster sugar
200g self-raising flour 

3/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda
5 eggs, at room temperature - separated
1/2 cup coconut cream + lime juice
zest of 2 limes



Method:

  • Preheat oven to 150 - 160 degrees C. 
  • With an electric mixer, cream butter and sugar in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy.
  • Beat in egg yolks, one at a time and make sure that each egg is completely incorporated. Scrape down the sides of the bowl before adding the next one.
  • Fold in flour alternately with the coconut cream mixture, beginning and ending with the flour. Stir until just combined and the batter is smooth.
  • Beat egg whites in a clean, dry bowl until soft peaks form.
  • With a rubber spatula, gently fold about a third of the beaten egg whites into the batter to lighten it; then fold in the remaining whites until just combined. Do not over mix.
  • Pour batter into muffin cases.
  • Bake for about 25 minutes or until a wooden skewer comes out clean when inserted into the centre of the cake.
