Here is a quick and easy recipe for some delicious cup cakes.  I used a selection of dried fruits, but you can select your prefered ones.  Topped with some cream cheese frosting, they are delicious.


100g butter

½ tsp cinnamon (powder)

½ tsp nutmeg (powder)

250g caster sugar

100ml sunflower oil

4 eggs

20g currants

20g mixed dried fruit

20g dried cranberries

20g raisins

300g plain flour

2 tsp baking powder


Melt the butter with the cinnamon and nutmeg on a low heat in a small pan.

Pour into a mixing bowl with the sugar and sunflower oil and stir well.

Beat in the eggs until smooth.

Add the dried fruits of your choice.  (You don’t need to use all of them)

Add the baking powder then gradually stir in the flour and mix well.

Spoon into paper cake cups (about ¾ of the way up).

Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180c for about 25-30 minutes (or until brown).
