Ingredients

Cupcakes

  • 200 g (1 cup) sugar
  • 113 g (1/2 cup) butter, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 120 ml (1/2 cup) milk
  • 192 g + 16g (1 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp) flour divided
  • 1 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3 peaches peeled, pitted & chopped

Topping:

  • 480 ml (2 cups) cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 32 g (1/4 cup) powdered sugar
  • 300 g (2 cups) fresh raspberries
  • 2 peaches sliced for garnish

Instructions

  • Heat oven to fan assisted 160 C / 180 C / 350 F / gas 4.
  • Line muffin tins with paper liners (I always spray my liners with a little non-stick spray to ensure the cupcakes release easily) and set aside.
  • Sift together 192g (1 1/2 cup) flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  • Cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well between each addition. Then add vanilla. Alternately add flour mixture and milk, starting and ending with the milk, until all ingredients are added.
  • In a small bowl, toss diced peaches together with 16g (2 tbsp) flour to coat. Gently fold into batter.
  • Divide batter among lined muffin cups, filling each cup about 2/3 full.
  • Bake 15 - 18 minutes, or until tester inserted in center comes out clean and cakes spring back when touched lightly.
  • Remove from oven and let cool on wire racks.
  • Once cupcakes are cooled. whip cream to stiff peaks together with vanilla and powdered sugar. Gently fold in fresh raspberries.
  • Top each cupcake generously with whipped cream mixture, garnishing with a slice of peach (and a raspberry, if desired).
  • Chill well before serving.
