Cooking Method

  1. Heat the oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5.

  2. Arrange 6 paper cases in the cake tin.

  3. Add all the cake ingredients into a large bowl and beat with an electric whisk for about 3 minutes until you get a smooth batter.

  4. Divide the mixture between each cake case so each is half full.

  5. Bake for 12-15 minutes until risen and golden.

  6. Remove from the oven and allow to cool on a wire rack.

  7. Cut out a small hole in the centre of each cake and fill with 1 tsp. of Original Strawberry Whole Fruit Jam.

  8. Mix the icing sugar, 1 tsp. of pink food colouring and water, until stiff. Place the icing mixture into a piping bag and decorate the cupcakes with a squiggly pattern to look like brains.

  9. Leave to set.

    These will keep for up to 2-3 days stored in a cool place, in an airtight container.
