Peaches and Cream Cupcakes.

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

March  is here!

 And that means Spring is finally on its way, alhamdulillah. I'm really looking forward to the days getting longer and brighter. 

To brighten things up in the kitchen, I baked these amazing Peaches and Cream Cupcakes. They were so simple to make and used ingredient that I'm sure everyone has hidden at the back of the cupboard - tinned fruit! I used peaches but this recipe should work with pineapple too.
Whichever fruit you use, these cupcakes will definitely bring a glimmer of hope after all that rain. The peach filled sponge is very light and airy - top that with whipped cream and juicy peaches, and you have a real winner on your hands - enjoy!

A Simple List of Ingredients:

1. Tinned Peaches
2. Sugar
3. Butter
4. Eggs
5. Baking Powder
6. Self-Raising Flour
7. Double Cream

Bismillah, let's begin!

The first and most important thing to do is to preheat your oven - Gas Mark 4/180C/350F. Then, line your cupcake tray with 12 paper liners.

Next, grab a 400 gram Tin of Peach Slices.

Drain out the juice, and save it for later.

For the peach slices ..

.. leave 12 as they are, and finely chop the rest. 

Now, on to the sponge. Take 115 grams (4 ounces) Sugar ..

.. and 115 grams (4 ounces) Softened Butter.

Beat together by hand or with an electric mixer until creamy and well combined.

Add in 2 Eggs.

And, beat them in.

Now, the dry ingredients - 1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder.

And, 115 grams (4 ounces) Self-Raising Flour!

Mix until combined.

Finally, add in 1 tablespoon of the Peach Juice.

Along with the chopped peaches.

Stir well.

Divide the batter between the paper cases.

Bake for 25 minutes until golden brown.

Allow them to cool completely.

Then, it's time to assemble. Take your cooled cupcakes, the remaining peach slices and 150 ml Double Cream which has been whipped to soft peaks.

Dollop a teaspoon of whipped cream on to a cupcake.

And, top with a peach slice.

Continue with the rest, until ..

.. they're all ready! And ready to dig into - I hope you give this recipe a try! They are truly scrumptious!
