Gruesome Eyeball Cakes

With Halloween fast approaching I thought it was time for a new bake

As usual it's an easy but effective bake.

Four cupcakes on a wooden board with black icing and eyeball sweets in the centre

To try these yourself you will need........
  • 3 eggs
  • 8oz caster sugar
  • 8oz self-raising flour
  • 8oz baking spread/butter
  • half a teaspoon of baking powder
  • a couple of drops of vanilla essence
  • orange food colouring
  • black icing
  • eyeball sweets
  • mixing bowl
  • muffin cases
  • cup cake or muffin tray
  • spoons
  • wire rack or plate for cooling 
Some of the equipment and ingredients listed

Preheat oven to 180c and line the tray with the cake cases. For this recipe I chose to use muffin cases as I wanted the cakes to be on the larger size.

Place the eggs, sugar, flour, spread, vanilla essence into a bowl and mix until smooth. Some people choose to whisk the sugar and spread first and then add the other ingredients but I like to chuck it all in at once!

Whisk until smooth.

Then add a few drops of the food colouring and mix well. Add more colouring if you'd like the orange darker.

Spoon into the cases and bake for 20-25 minutes. Place on a rack to cool.
