Egg Flour Rolling Pin


100g butter or margarine
100g caster sugar
100g self-raising flour, sifted
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoons milk
100g white chocolate
3 tablespoons double cream
200g cream cheese
40g icing sugar, sifted


  • Make the white chocolate cupcakes
    • Preheat the oven to 180°C (Electric oven | Electric fan oven 160°C | Gas Mark 4) and place 12 paper cases into a muffin tin.
    • Using an electric whisk, food processor or wooden spoon, beat the butter or margarine and sugar until very light and fluffy.
    • Add the eggs one at a time, beating each one in well before adding the next. Add the vanilla essence.
    • Carefully fold in the flour and baking powder if using.
    • Thin the cake mixture with the milk.
    • Alternatively, you can mix the ingredients together using a food processor. Use the pulse button to mix together in between adding the ingredients in the order above.
    • Bake in the oven for 10 - 20 minutes. After 10 minutes, check to see if the chocolate cupcakes are ready by inserting a cocktail stick into one of the cupcakes. If it comes out dry then the cupcakes are done. If not, then back in the oven for a few minutes more. Don't overcook the chocolate cupcakes otherwise they will dry out. Lift the cupcakes out of the muffin tin and leave to cool on a wire rack.
  • Make the white chocolate cream cheese icing
    • Place the chocolate and double cream in the microwave until just melted - under a minute should do. Stir to combine and allow to cool slightly.
    • Add the cream cheese and icing sugar.
    • Using an electric whisk, food processor or wooden spoon, beat the mixture until combined.
    • When the cakes are cool, drizzle some chocolate icing mixture over the top of each cupcake. These white chocolate cupcakes are best eaten on the day they are made.
