Easter Lamb Cupcakes March 28, 2013

Easter Lamb 2

Ewe (pun intended) will have fun putting these cute lambs together. And what a nice change to have lamb at tea-time instead of dinner-time!

 

You will need 12 of your favourite cupcakes, I used lemon flavoured one’s, with a covering of lemon butter cream.

Roll the white fondant and using the crinkle side of a round biscuit cutter, the same size as the top of your cupcake, cut 12 circles.

Also cut 12 slightly smaller one’s.

Place the larger one’s on the top of the cupcakes, onto the buttercream.

Using a dab of water, place the smaller one’s onto the larger one’s, to get the look of the wooly coat.

For the head, roll a lozenge shape of black fondant, place in the centre of the fluffy coat and check for sizing, then attach with a dab of water.

For the ears, roll tiny amounts of black fondant, attach with a dab of water and use a cocktail stick to give it some shape.

For the eyes, put a small amount of buttercream in a piping bag and with a small plain nozzle pipe the eyes.

Finish the buttercream off by piping some ontop of the lambs head.

Malted Loaf May 9, 2012

A malt and sultana loaf makes the perfect breakfast or tea-time treat. Serve it sliced and generously spread with butter.

This is a bread machine loaf.

Makes 1, 1lb loaf

Ingredients

200ml/7fl oz warm water

15ml/1Tbsp golden syrup

22ml/1 1/2 Tbsp malt extract

350g/12oz white bread flour

22ml/1 1/2 Tbsp skimmed milk powder

2.5ml/1/2 tsp salt

40g/1 1/2oz butter

2.5ml/1/2 tsp easy bake yeast

75g/3oz sultanas

Method

Pour the water, syrup and malt extract into the bread machine. If the instructions for your machine specify that the yeast is to be placed in the pan first, reverse the order in which you add the liquid and dry ingredients.

Sprinkle over the flour, ensuring that it covers the liquid. Add the milk powder. Add the salt and butter in separate corners of the bread pan. Make a shallow indent in the centre of the flour and add the yeast.

Set the bread machine to basic/normal setting (if available), medium crust. Press start. Add the sultanas when the machine beeps or after the first kneading.

Remove at the end of the baking cycle and turn out onto a wire rack.

If you like a sticky glaze, immediately after baking dissolve 15ml/1 Tbsp caster sugar in 15ml/1Tbsp of milk and brush all over the loaf.
