A Cupcake Day!

Hope you all had a great Easter Weekend!!

I love fruit 
and this little cupcake recipe is a quick way
of making your own little strawberry cakes.
You can use many different types of fruits
like I did.
However you choose to make them
Have fun!

Fresh Fruit Cupcake

2 eggs
5 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
To decorate:
2/3 cup heavy cream
1 pint of fresh berries, like strawberries, blueberries
raspberries, and currants
confectioners sugar for dusting

preheat oven to 350 F

Put the eggs and sugar in a large bowl and beat for about 10 minutes until thick and pale.  Add the vanilla extract. Sift the flour into a separate bowl twice, then sift into the egg mixture and fold in.
Spoon the mixture in the liners and bake in the preheat oven for about 12 minutes until golden and a skewer comes out clean.  Transfer to a wire rack and cool.

To decorate,
 whip the cream until it stands in peaks, then swirl over the cupcakes and top 
with fresh berries, dust with confections sugar and serve immediately.
You can add a little sugar to the whip cream if you want it sweeter.
